Wheat flour is a powder prepared from grinding wheat. This type of flour is used as an essential ingredient in cookies, bread, cakes, and other baked goods. Gluten is wheat’s natural protein. Gluten gives baked goods their structure and texture. When the dough prepared from wheat flour is kneaded, the glutens develop and become elastic. Flour made from a hard, high-protein variety of wheat is called strong flours. They have a higher gluten content. Flours made from softer, low-protein wheat are called weak flours and are lower in gluten. The wheat flour market has witnessed a significant growth owing to factors such as increasing demand from bakery and food service industries coupled with rising demand for convenience food products such as bread, bakery products, snacks, noodles, and pasta.
