Italian flour and tomatoes

Anyone used these before? I found them at Lamana @essenden airport... I have also seen this flour at the big fruit shop @ Doncaster shopping centre.

The flour is 11.2% protein. I usually use lighthouse bread and pizza flour for pizza and defiance bakers flour for bread. Both have higher protein levels than this Italian one. I have been using these aforementioned flours because they are easy to get at woolworths during the standard shop.....

If its Italian it must be good for pizza, are you serious? :confused:

We grow and process the finest food in Oz, try Wallaby flour from Lauke mills it is so fine and high protein, I use it for bread and pizza and can not fault it.

If you want tomatoes grow your own, cant get better than that.:)

I think Heliman had an old post on this.

Laucke is great and so is their range.

For pizza/foccacia flour my fave is the one from Allied Mills which I buy best price through a catering supplier.

NissenNeill and I both agree on Gagganis

Probably find the Italian flour is Australian too
Australia exports a lot of wheat to Italy

Ok, all points taken. Tried the flour and tomatoes last night and no better if not as good as my standard Aussie products. Will revert to local produce......
