Italian 00 Flour
« on: March 16, 2008, 03:36:32 PM »
I recently purchased Delverde Farina di Grano Tenero tipo "00" flour.  Is this flour comparable to Caputo 00 Pizzeria flour????

Many years ago, before the Caputo 00 flours became more readily available in the U.S., I tried the DelVerde 00 flour. However, I couldn't make heads or tails out of the data on the label (I was trying mainly to determine its protein content), so I just fumbled around with the flour as best I could until the other brands of 00 flour, including the Caputo flours, became available. I understand that at one time, Dom DeMarco used the Delverde 00 flour at DiFara's. If true, he apparently found a way to make it work for his purposes.
