Wheat bread flour is a flour with a high level of gluten, which gives breads made with yeasts their structure. Without the high level of gluten in this flour, the carbon dioxide produced by the yeast would not be properly trapped, producing a denser bread.

Bread flour is often found in recipes that also contain rye flour, molasses, cornmeal and yeast

Substitution for 1 cup bread flour:

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon gluten

For when making bread.

Note: Substitutions are a suggestion only and may not work well with all recipes. Use your best judgment!
