Wheat G2

Durum Wheat (also known as macaroni wheat)

Durum in Latin means “hard” and this species is the hardest of all wheats. It’s high protein content, as well as strength, make durum good for special uses, the most well-known being “pasta”. It is also widely used for bread making. It is unusual that despite very high protein content, it is low in gluten that is necessary for bread to rise. Certain breads are made with Durum, but most are substantially supplemented with commercial white flours.
