Caputo Semolina Flour 1kg
Caputo's semolina re-ground ('rimacinata') durum wheat flour has been milled twice to produce a finer flour than most semolinas.
Caputo Semolina flour is made from a rougher variety of wheat and has a distinctive yellow colour. As it is a coarse flour it is considered to be healthier than fine white flour Semolina contains more carbohydrates, proteins and fibre than white flour which is rich in simple carbs but without fibre and protein.
Semolina flour is recommended for certain traditional homemade pastas and breads adding structure and bite, and wherever the yellow colour, special texture and flavour of semolina are desired.
