Flour is the foundation of food service.

General Mills has the best flour for virtually every application.

Good To Know

  • Flour is classified by its level of protein
  • Higher protein level = Higher gluten level
  • Higher gluten leads to chewier dough – think pizza and bagels
  • Lower gluten yields tender baked goods - think cake and pastry
