The “00” refers to the texture of the flour. Flour is designated on a scale indicating how finely ground the flour is and how much of the bran and germ have been removed, ranging from the roughest ground “2” to the finest “00”. This flour is also known as Tipo 00 which is highly refined and has a soft powder texture. 00 Flour can be made from Italian grains and/or blends of other grains to achieve a range of protein content of 10–13% and a maximum moisture content of 14.5%. There are many 00 flours available in the U.S. market, the one we recommend is the popular Italian brand produced by Caputo.« Back to Glossary Index
