Sourdough Flours - The best flour for making Sourdough

What type of flour is best to use for sourdough bread? If you’re a complete beginner, organic strong white bread flour made from hard wheat is the best option. This flour will; give you the easiest and strongest gluten development, be easiest to knead and shape and give the best rise in the oven.

We have listed below recommended flours from our favourite millers Matthews Cotswold, Gilchesters & Marriage's. We have started with our best sellers Matthews Cotswold Churchill, Marriage's Manitoba Very Strong White Canadian and Gilchesters Organics Stoneground Organic Strong White Flour plus a great selection of organic flours, wholemeal flours and rye flours.
