Even the best bread contains very few ingredients, often just wheat, flour, water, salt, sugar and yeast and sometimes oil, butter, eggs, seeds, and nuts. So, it is very important to use the best quality high protein flour and other ingredients for making bread.
Much can be said about high protein flours. They are often the best option for people who are trying to cut down on carbohydrates but don’t want to starve themselves. The protein rich flour can be used in every type of recipe. There are a great many recipes you can try.
You might wonder what benefits you gain from high concentration of protein in your flour. Well, we can name quite a few.
- If you are using high protein, low carb flour and you are an ardent foodie, then you will have no need to give up on the baked food items that you love so much. You can replace normal wheat flour with high protein flour in almost all baked recipes, though there might be slight difference in the final product in terms of taste, density and color, but ultimately this is still a better option than giving up certain food items entirely.
- Protein is the building block for our body; high protein means your muscle will get more fodder for growth. You can gain weight healthily without gaining fat.
- High protein flours tend to keep cravings in check. This means you don’t feel the urge to munch something every half hour. So, naturally, you don’t gain weight as fast.
- Last but not the least, many high protein flours aren’t even distantly related to wheat, so you have no need to worry about gluten. But even so make certain that the flour you are buying has not been processed in a facility that is also used to process wheat, as chances of cross contamination is quite high.
So, now that you know the many and varied benefits of wheat flour, you should have ample reasons to try them out. You can use them mixed with other flours to get a balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat.
