Re: [BKARTS] High Gluten flour

Just an FYI for your friend: Bread flour in our stores have higher gluten content and you can increase the gluten content of any flour you wish if you get Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten flour available in natural food sections/stores.

Vital wheat gluten is the secret to commercial breads being so light and airy. It can be used with bread machine breads, too, which is how I found out about it in the first place. This would be cheaper than looking for high gluten content flour overseas so I hope this helps.

A book artist friend of mine asked me once to bring some English
flour back to California
for her, as that flour has more gluten. Just a cautionary tale: at
Heathrow we were searched
thoroughly. It seems they thought the flour could be part of an
explosive device.
