Best Tasting Flour Hands Down
5/27/2013 7:44 AM
I got into bread baking last fall with no-kneads. Then bought Peter Reinhart's book to move to the next level. I started out with King Arthur bread flour but thought there might be something better out there and did some research bringing me to Honeyville. The reviews sold me on Alta Artisan. (Honeyville says that this is lower gluten, but their analysis says 12% protein, which is high gluten bread flour....go figure?) I can't say that I noticed a performance difference. Bread is tricky and technique is everything, but I can tell you that the flavor of my breads has improved dramatically. This is just the best tasting flour out there. I bake a pain de mie every week. It tastes so good that we call it "bread cake". Yumm.

My wife is the baker in our family and I'm not all that experienced. However, I know what I like to eat and I like good bread.
Recently I decided it was time I got into attempting to bake my own bread and my daughter gave me some tools and a kneedless bread book to kick start my efforts.
My first breads were actually quite good and as I tried different flours I started to get a feel for small differences between them.
After reading the Amazon reviews on Alta flour I decided to give it a try (rather risky for a beginning baker to go for 50 lbs of flour).
I immediately noticed that my bread wasn't rising as fast or as much as it had with King Arthur Bread flour and I was feeling a bit insecure.
However, after I got a loaf out of the oven, let it cool, then cut into it, I have to say, this is the flour I've been looking for. My breads have more substance to them, the crust was always great but now it's chewier, and this is exactly the kind of bread I was dreaming about baking.
Thanks for keeping the shipping cost low which enables those of us who don't have a retail store that carries this product near us to use it.
You might consider selling this in smaller quantities so people could test it before committing to 50 lbs but at this point I'm very glad I did.
My favorite bread flour!

This is my favorite bread flour... hands down! I have tried most of the expensive unbleached flours out there. Alta Artisan consistently makes the finest loaf with the best texture. The crust is fabulous!
I bake at least three days per week, and have used this for nearly every variety of bread I make. From Challah to Sourdough to Pumpernickel, it is always perfect! Works great for pancakes and sweet breads (like banana) too! I think it is better than King Arthur. Great results every time.

I've never learned to make bread so I bought a Zojirushi breadmaker and have been using this flour for months once or twice a week. The bread is always perfect and the taste ahhhhh!! This is my second time ordering, thanks Honeyville for the wonderful discount. I'm a long time fan!

I have been making my artisan bread with regular bread flour with okay results. I tried this flour on a whim and was amazed at the results. The crust is nice and crispy but the real treat is the airiness and wonderful chewiness of the inside! It is fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone for this type of bread. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.
Perfect blending, High performace

By far the best artisan flour I have used - I like it better than King Arthur & what is available at our coop. The price is reasonable; shipping is prompt; product is fresh. I make @ 6 loaves every other week with Northwest Sourdough starter, which performs well with this flour. Friends and neighbors are delighted with a loaf of consistently crispy-on the outside, airy-soft & chewy-in the middle goodness. Day old slices make wonderful French toast. I'm going to sell these at our local Farmers' Market.
Great for Artisan Breads

I've been using this four for a couple of years now and have had the most consistent results for any patent flour for hearth breads. Quality is consistent order to order and shows in the consistent results
