ConAgra KRoyal Premium High Gluten Flour
« on: August 21, 2004, 11:31:46 PM »
Anyone ever use this product?

Is it more cream colored than pure white flour say KASL?

Is there any practical difference between this product and KASL in your opinion?

Any source for small 5 lb bags?

I've tried the Conagra Full Power, and it worked fine.  But it's not available in the store at Costco, only by order. Where did you get the kRoyal?

Ummmm....  Lets see here...

Ok Ok  I was dumpster diving at my favorite pizza parlor  ::)

Actually, I don't really go into the dumpster just look in and/or poke around with a stick...

Never tried any Conagra flours.  Would like to try it though.  Duplicating the crust on their pie is my goal.  

Any additional info appreciated...

I've been very surprised at how willing people are to share what they use, leaving the ol' dumpster days behind.   Ask if you can purchase their dough for a medium pizza.  I've found that many pizzerias are willing to sell a medium (14") pizza dough for a buck, since this still keeps them close to you.  By getting a hold of their dough, you can weigh it, feel the hydration differences, stick in the refrigerator for a night to see how it reacts over time (does it get spongy or stay pretty strong), see how your oven/toppings compare, etc.  In time, ask if you can purchase flour from them.
