High- Gluton flour?
« on: October 31, 2003, 02:48:06 AM »
I am trying to find a true  High-Gluton flour and all I can find is.....King Arther 12%  or Samís Club Bakers and Chefs flour!  I looked all over the net to find info on their product and this is one of the few sites that had info on their flour.

http://www.sourdoughhome.com/bakersandchefsbreadflour.html

The test they did tests protein at 10 percent.
I thought some of you pizza makers would find this of interest.

I have been looking all over for King Arther / Sir Lancelot  High-Gluton and come up ZIP!  People I know that order from Sysco tell me they cant get it.  I give up on finding it in my area (North Florida)
Does any one know where I might be able to order 50 or 100 lbs of 14% un bleached flour?
I can find 12% retail King Arther in the stores and it works well but I would like to try the 14% if I could get some.

Thanks /  Mike

I buy my high gluten flour online directly from King Arthur Flour.

Here's a link to their Sir Lancelot 14.2% high-gluten flour.

I have purchased from King Arthur over the web, and found a couple of semi-local distributors.

You can buy it online using King Arthur's "Baker's Catalog".

http://www.kingarthurflour.com

Click on the "Baker's Catalog" link, then click on "Flours and Grains" and scroll down to their "Sir Lancelot High Gluten Flour" (or search for item 3041). It's $3.15 for a 5 pound bag. I usually order four or five bags at a time sine the shipping cost is more economical.

Has anyone tried the King Aurther Pizza Crust Mix?  I saw it on their website, and think I will try some.  They also have an all-new Pizza Flour.

Tried the King Arthur pizza flour mix. Not good, in my opinion.

High gluten flour is available from (www.barryfarm.com) in 25 lb. bags---  and shipping is reasonable.  

You may also wish to visit the pizza, focaccia & flatbread forum at King Arthur's (www.bakingcircle.com) for information on increasing the protein percentage of bread flour by adding vital wheat gluten.

Thanks all,    for the help!
So what I ended up with is a product made by Conagra Foods.  Kyrol is the name of this  flour, itís a 14 % protein high gluten flour and comes in a 50 lb. Bag.
It has worked out great, makes a super thin crust and excellent on New Yourk dough!
I am VERY PLEASED with this flour!

PS. The cost is low at that,  21.38 for 100 lbs.   I canít complain!
Check it out!     :)

Dave I had ran across Barry Farms before but found by their definition that the high gluten they have is modified by removing the starch.  KA is high gluten because of high protein.

I got KYROL from SYSCO Foods. I have a Friend that orders from them and had him bring it in with his order.
As far as I know SYSCO will only sell to a business
(wholesale only) , the sales rep. had three other Hi-Gluten flours they sell. Any way the KYROL works fine.

Happy PIZZA making all!

I have used King Arthur 's Sir Lancelot High-Gluten Flour (14.2%) with excellent results  in NY Style pizza crusts, but find the shipping costs from Vermont (to Raleigh, NC) to be rather high.

I'm entertaining the thought of establishing a wholesale account with a regional distributor and having Sir Lancelot shipped to me in bulk.  I was given a ballpark quote on 50 lb. bags that was nearly half that of what King Arthur charges through their retail catalog.
Unfortunately, the minimum order this distributor will accept equates to about one-quarter ton of Sir Lancelot---quite a bit more than I am able to use.  

If I follow through with this, I wanted to know if there are others who would be interested in helping me find a home for about eight 50 lb. bags of Sir Lancelot?

I'd be looking to cover my cost, not to make a profit.

Regards,

David
