Certainly the three most important foods of mankind are: rice, potatoes and flour, which is an ingredient base of important food preparations. We will concentrate our focus on the two most important flours: wheat flour and corn flour. Learn more at: Danone. In this installment we will begin the series of columns on the first, leaving for subsequent deliveries analysis of cornmeal flour named after Europe and its name originates from latin farina.

Finally the flours of soybean, rice, oats, millet, durum or hard wheat and barley which like rye flour must be complemented by a percentage of wheat flour to knead them and achieve formation of gluten. The flour is chemically composed of starch: main element that allows the fermentation; gluten: is the element that gives elasticity to the masses; sugars: element that helps the yeast to transform carbon dioxide; oils and fats: items located in germ in the shell of the grain of wheat; minerals or ash: elements that reduces the purity of flour, so to a lesser extent, higher purity; vitamins: contains vitamins B1, B2, PP and E. A vital information is the classification of the flour of wheat, since according to this, we will use the flour three zeros (000): in the preparation of breads, which by its high content of proteins, allows the formation of gluten and will get a good proofing and flour four zeros (0000): used in bread mold, in pastry, chocolate milkshake of cakes and pastries, etc the recipe of the week is the Quisadilla of rice flourdessert of El Salvador, we learned to prepare recently.
