Tell Flour Grader Fred to improve labelling!
Buying online and keen to be done with it, I must have clicked on the wrong packet. As at least one poster says that this flour is unsuitable for cakes (ordinary pastry, puddings too?) this, for one aged male, is a bad buy. It may work with crumbles or just flouring roast potatoes. I agree absolutely with posters who say that Homepride should state clearly the flour's seemingly sole purpose. It is all very well among comments to refer to mention of "00" flour amid half-an-hour of reading on the packet but to those of us who loathe pizzas such information is meaningless and of no interest.
Waste of money!
Not labelled as to whether plain or self raising, certainly didn't realise until reading reviews here that it was pasta flour!! Made a fruit cake that turned out like a brick! Complete waste of money. Please , Homepride, sort out your labelling!
No good for pizza, but might make a nice cake
Not for pasta, pizza or anything that needs strong flour. Not sure what homepride are playing at here, the protein content of this flour is very low. Not really suitable for either pasta or pizza, regardless of how fine it's milled.
'00' Pre-Sieved Flour For Making Pizza Pasta Dough
This is Premium Milled '00' Extra Fine Pre-Sieved Flour for making Pizza and Pasta dough - Or for recipes that state it requires a '00' Extra Fine Pre-Sieved Flour. It states it on the front of the box very clearly! So, if you picked this up thinking it was plain or self-raising flour - Then YOU got it wrong! That's called "Operator Error" on your part. Take responsibility for NOT reading the front of the box! Well done Homepride for providing us with '00' Extra Fine Pre-Sieved Flour - For those of us that make our own Pizza and Pasta dough.
Good for Italian Recipes
Good for pizza dough, nice storage vs traditional bags. Would be nice if you could by refills of the same brand. For those asking is this is self raising, it isn't. If you look at the ingredients list you won't find raising agents. This is best used for recipes calling for 00 flour such as pasta and pizza doughs.
Misleading labelling on flour
Like one or two of the other customers, I bought it not realising it is pasta flour so a waste of money. I thought it was just a fine plain flour. May as well throw it away.
Great pizza dough!
This is OO pizza flour which means its very fine ground and makes a great pizza dough. Don't use it for anything else. Well done Homepride
bad packaging .
bought in error - found it very annoying that it doesn't state whether plain or self raising- got the feeling I shall have some disasters before I find out - perhaps it would be cheaper to just throw it away as I dont make pizzas or pasta. Pretty unhealthy too taking what little roughage there is out. Should be labled for Pizzas or similar- Sales could drop though without all the people who buy it in error.
Is this self raising? I found I needed to add ba
Is this self raising? I found I needed to add baking powder otherwise very disappointing baking.
What can it be used for
It would be helpful if the packet said. Plain or self raising or for piazzas?
