Here at Brickovenbaker.com, we offer a variety of 00 Flours from Antimo Caputo in Naples, Italy. Widely regarded as both the most highly refined flour and best blend of grains, you will taste the difference.
00 (double zero, zero zero, double "oh", tipo doppio zero). The Italian numbering scheme refers to how refined the flour is. The more refined it is, the lower the extraction rate. An extraction rate of 100% would be a whole grain flour, which includes all of the bran and other outer parts of the flour. The lower the extraction rate, the less of the outer portion of the wheat ends up in the flour. The more refined 00 flour is also a more finely ground flour.
We are proud to provide our customers with a variety of Caputo 00 flours developed for specific purposes:
A durum semolina flour instead of a 00, but it is re-ground and finer than most other semolinas. Unless you know what you are doing we recommend blending this 50-50 with Caputo 00 Pasta e Gnocchi for making pasta at home.
