If You Bake-Flour Question

Posted by on Jun. 12, 2013 at 10:24 PM

I've only used name brand flours-Gold Medal mostly but also White Lily. I'm scared to try a store brand but I want to save some money.

Has anyone found a store brand that bakes the same, does not taste differently?

Also I mostly buy AP if that matters.

I have never noticed a difference between the two brands - store and name.

Hum, I grew up on white lily. But I use store brands now. Seems fine to us. Even my mom who is a flour snob. Doesn't question me.

I've used the Bakers & Chef stuff from Sam's Club and it's fine.

I buy gold medal now though because they sell it in two smaller bags instead of one huge one. It's just easier.

I do a lot of baking and I've always used store brand. Only gold medal if its on sale cheaper than the store brand. I've never noticed any difference.
I usually buy mine in bulk at Winco.

I get my flour from Costco normally. If I need it I'll buy a small bag of store brand. I've never noticed a difference.

I always use store brand. Most store brand products are made by major manufacturers. So Gold Metal and Store Brand could be identical if they have partnered with that particular chain store. :)
