00 Italian flour
« on: November 04, 2013, 09:19:53 PM »
Is 00 flour bleached or unbleached? The dough is always so much whiter when I use Caputo or other European flour than when I use domestic unbleached bread flour.

Lido,

It's unbleached.

Thanks Pete. I wonder how/why it's so much whiter than other flour.

I don't see it being noticeably whiter than KAAP or KABF which aren't bleached either.
