2018-02-14TFKCC(35of80)Here’s some information about our flour that we use in all our breads and pastries:

We use a premium European-style flour in ALL of our baking and cooking. It is unbleached and unbromated (the less chemical processes the better!). Did you know our gluten sensitive clients are able to eat anything we make*? Croissants, breads, cakes…
Maybe you’ve heard the story “I went to Europe and was able to eat everything! But when I come back to the US, I can’t have any gluten.” Well, no need to go to Europe! Just come to The French Kitchen!
We also sell our amazing flour for your home use. Spread the word!
*Please note this is based on customers’ feedback. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that our statement will apply to anyone with a gluten sensitivity. Our flour is NOT gluten-free.

Here are some sources about unbleached and unbromated flour (Please note we do not use Bob’s Red Mill even though it is a great article):
