Molini Del Ponte’s Sicilian white flour for bread or pizza is made with soft wheat that is grown and processed on the island.
Italians tend to separate wheat into two varieties: durum wheat and soft wheat. Durum has a higher protein content, whereas soft is the type often just called wheat in the UK. The strength of flour is not dictated by the variety, rather the gluten content. Both soft wheat and durum wheat can be strong (typically used for bread where you want a tighter dough) and less strong (for when you want a lighter texture, such as cakes and muffins).
This flour is milled by cylinder producing a much finer grind.
Molini Del Ponte is a Sicilian milling company who takes the utmost pride in their range of heritage grains and traditional grinding techniques. The millers carefully select the best whole grains, all grown in Sicily, then gently grind the flour using either a milling stone or cylinder. Milling by cylinder produces a much finer flour. Using the stone (which dates back to the late 1800s) to slowly grind allows the grains to retain much of their original flavour and characteristics.
These techniques are combined with cutting-edge filtering systems, to ensure only the highest quality flour leaves the mill.
When not grinding, the team at Molini Del Ponte invests in research into rediscovering ancient grains. Once they identify and cultivate ancient varieties of grain, the millers produce unique new flours which are enriched by the specific aromas and biodiversity of the Sicilian terroir.
The brand has been milling for four generations, and is truly dedicated to producing artisan, unique products for chefs and cooks.
