Well, I knew this about Canadian beer, but never about Canadian flour.
Apparently, our four is so strong it comes with a warning. This brings up several questions:
- Should pregnant women can our cookies?
- Should those about to operate heavy machinery dump our dumplings?
- Should drivers spurn our scones?
- Should you be 18 or over and able to produce ID before enjoying the sublime pleasure of snarfing our cupcakes?
Or, much as our booze cautions apply largely to American tourists, do these warnings only apply to the British?
The scientific background, from inkycircus:
see the flour milled from wheat grown here in the UK is weak, meaning it is low in the protein gluten… all in all, lots of gluten makes for a good loaf. and the wheat comin’ outta the canadian breadbasket (our prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) is STRONG.
