The first flour that we ever carried was this 00 Chef's Flour, milled by Antimo Caputo. This is the 00 flour you will find on shelves in stores in Napoli.
The Caputo family has been producing flour in Italy for over three generations, and we sell many of their offerings in our online store.
The Chef's flour is a general purpose, high gluten flour that works well for many recipes. You can use it for pizza crust, pasta making, bread, and pastries.
"Tipo 00" refers to how refined the flour is, and indicates that it is refined further than regular flour, and that results in using less of the outer parts of the wheat, while also creating a very finely ground product.
This flour comes in it's original packaging. It is not repacked. Each bag contains 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) of flour.
The product is GMO-free. According to the importer, "The flour cannot be labeled organic because it is not certified by a third-party agency." It does meet whatever strict EU standards exist for wheat flour.
