Flour Comparison: Flour Granulation Size
Granulation of flour changes how it absorbs water. We are comparing flour with three different granulation sizes milled from the same grain. Check out our video on the next post to see result.
Finer flour absorbs water more quickly because it has more surface area. Coarser flour hydrates slowly, and it takes a longer time to form gluten. When using coarse flour, it helps to pre-soak and let it rest for at least 1 hour or longer. It allows for the flour granules to fully hydrate and gluten to start forming. This helps to create a stronger dough during mixing without having to mix for a long time.
