Bread mix

I live in Germany and although lots of bread mixes are available there is no strong white plain flour on the shelves. I have yet to try the 1450 grade flour I bought recently but I bought it more in hope than in confidence by a process of elimination. My German assistant did an online search - she also wanted the answer - and reported back that the numbers refer to the minerals in the flour; the higher the number the darker the bake. Can anyone tell me the German equivalent of strong white plain flour, please ?

Strong Flour in Germany

Hello Fiona C,

I’m afraid we don’t have the answer to your question.

However I am working with someone who has lived in Germany and they tell me that the flour you should use is called Mehl.

I hope that helps.

Best wishes

Strong flour in Germany

Hello! I also live in Germany and I believe the equivalent of strong flour is flour marked as 550 (in contrast to normal 405 flour).

1450 flour

I also believe that 1450 flour is used to make wholegrain bread. See this thread: http://www.englishforum.ch/food-drink/79348-what-strong-flour-called-german-where-can-i-buy.html

Strong Flour

Hello Fiona, are you, by any chance, married to a serviceman? If so you could maybe get it from the NAAFI (or whatever it's called now), or if you know someone who is entitled to shop there, they may be able to get it for you.
If not Lakeland sells it, and will deliver to Germany. It might pay you to get several packs.
By the way, mehl is any wheat flour not neccessarily strong flour.
When I was in Malta, many years ago, I couldn't get strong flour, so just used S.R. with fresh yeast, it made a lovely large bap.
Hope this helps'
