This wheat is not only known for the high
quality of its flour but for the large amount of
gluten it yields.
It is the gluten that determines the quality
of bread you can make from a given measure of
flour. That is why Zephyr Flour makes as many
loaves as any ilour and so many more loaves
than most other flours.'
