• I assume you mean flour. It is made by grinding up wheat or other grains.
  • The correct word is flour.
  • The term flour was once spelled 'flower'. The milled flour we buy and use today was once ground using a mortar and pestle. Milling of different grains dates back to prehistoric times and through the ages automation of the milling process was perfected. Although there are many types of flour, all-purpose (or occident) flour is used most frequently. Bread flour is higher in protein. Unbleached flour is simply not as white as bleached. Whole-wheat flour is brown in color, and is derived from the complete wheat kernel (the bran and germ). When used in bread baking, it gives a nutty flavor and a denser texture when compared to all-purpose flour. Bread does not rise as high in whole-wheat breads, which is why a mixture of both whole-wheat and white flour is often used when baking. Cake flour has the least amount of gluten of all wheat flours, making it best for light, delicate products such as sponge cakes, genoise, and some cookie batters. Cake flour often comes bleached, which gives it a bright, white appearance. Pastry flour also has a low gluten content, though it contains a bit more than cake flour. Made from a soft wheat flour, it is used for making tart and pie doughs, some cookie batters, and muffins. High-gluten flour is milled from hard wheat and has a high protein content, making it high in gluten. Most people think of flour in terms of wheat flour. When in fact, flour can be ground from a variety of nuts and seeds. Some types of flours available are: amaranth, arrowroot, barley, buckwheat, chickpea, corn, kamut, nuts, oats, potato, quinoa, rice, rye, soy, spelt, tapioca, teff, wheat, and vegetables. Spelt flour contains gluten. It can, however, be tolerated by people with gluten allergies. When making bread with spelt flour, the bread is not kneaded as long as other breads. The gluten is not as durable as other wheat’s. Spelt flour may be frozen, if not used right away. American flours and British equivalents: Cake and pastry flour = soft flour All-purpose flour = plain flour Bread flour = strong flour, hard flour Self-rising flour = self-raising flour Whole-wheat flour = wholemeal flour
  • Flour is made by grinding grains, (usually wheat), some roots, nuts, and beans. Probably other stuff too.
  • not sure but you could try goggling it
