Did you know: Self raising flour or Self-Rising flour in the USA is a mix of all-purpose flour and raising agent. In the USA Self-Rising flour contains salt but generally not in the UK. That Self Raising flour was invented by Henry Jones a baker in Bristol in 1845. Being an innovative baker, he created a way for bakers on board Royal Navy ships to create better baked goods. A year later, Henry was appointed purveyor of patent flour and biscuits to Queen Victoria and in 1849 he gained patent in the USA. Well done Henry our Cotswold Self Raising flour is dedicated to you.
