Unbromated flour


A higher protein baking flour that does not contain potassium bromate. The higher protein allows the flour to develop more gluten which results in a more stable baked product and also is desireable for bakers in high altitudes. Potassium bromate is typically added to bread flour to help the elastisity of the baked product. The addititve is not permitted for use in the U.K. but it is used in the U.S. Many consider potassium bromate unhealthful and products that contain the additive must be labeled as such in the U.S.
