Caputo Red 00 'Cuoco' Flour 1kg
Produced in Naples, the Caputo Red flour is a strong flour, higher in gluten and protein content and gives a stronger elasticity. It is recommended for long rise doughs. A higher proportion of water can be used with this flour.
‘00’ refers to the texture of the flour – specifically how finely it has been ground, so this one is powder fine. The blend of the best wheat available and the slow grind technique used by the Antico Molino Caputo make this flour unique. It is also 100% natural and additive free!
This flour is recommended for thin crust pizzas and is also a great all-rounder and is ideal for all types of bread, cakes and sauces. It also makes excellent pancakes!
