Gluten goodness. The truly nourish
ing part of Dour is the gluten and
phosphate. These are often lost or
in.paired in the process of milling,
b it they are preserved in the highest
efficiency in the Winged Horse Eaco
flour which is milled by a special pro
cess of their own. from the best hard
spring wheat. That is what makes
Eaco f.our so rich, and enables it to
yield the purest, whitest, most fragrant
EM wholesome bread and biscuit ever
e8ten by mortal.
