Help us settle a dispute. Is cheap, supermarket white bread made with finer flour
than artisanal sourdough bread? And if so, does the fine white flour lead to more gastrointestinal upset because "it becomes glue in your stomach"?

What is "Strong Bakers Flour"? I'm in Canada. I'm a baker. I understand that this flour is higher in protein, but the bags never specify what the protein content is. [more inside]

I've just made a big pot of chowder, but it tastes really floury - I presume I must have undercooked the roux. Can anyone suggest a way to rescue it? The best that googling can do is suggest I add something to mask the taste - any suggestions for what might work to do that?

Spurred by a recent flour question
: why does some flour have barley in it, and some doesn't? And why? And what are the qualitative differences (flavor, texture) between the two?

Hi all, I am doing some writing on the history of baking, and I was wondering when flour became pure. We take for granted the fact that flour in our grocery stores is free from insect larvae, twigs, and other contaminants. I have heard that the purpose of sifting flour was once to get this stuff out. Now we sift for nostalgia's sake or possibly to make flour fluffy. I want to say that flour became pure with the advent of large flour millers in the 19th century like Wasburn-Crosby and Pillsbury (both now are part of General Mills). But that is just a guess. When did things really get cleaned up? Do any of you foodies and bakers know? Thanks!

I have a vague memory of some show airing during the early 1980s that I think was sponsored by Robin Hood Flour or maybe King Arthur Flour. I have little to no recollection of what happened on the show (some sort of baking challenge for kids maybe?) but I know that I would watch it around lunchtime when I had half-days of kindergarten. It could have been either a PBS or CBC show as we got CKWS out of Kingston, Ont. in my village in Upstate NY. Robin Hood Flour sounds right, so I'm leaning toward it being a Canadian show. Does this ring any bells with anyone?

I would like to buy a 25-50 lb sack of flour in NWDC. The only place I can think of is Costco in Tenleytown, and I'm not a member. I'm limited to metro-accessible areas. Bonus points if it's unbleached white or whole wheat.
