Did you know cookies, pancakes, waffles, quick bread, and pie crusts benefit from bleached flour, whereas unbleached flour is ideal for puff pastries, eclairs, yeast bread, and popovers? Unbleached flour is milled flour that hasn't been bleached. It differs from other flours since:
- It has a slightly off-white tint that fades with age and a denser grain than bleached flour.
- Unbleached flour has a denser texture than bleached flour.
