During the latter spring and summer months of 1946 the United States was able to send more wheat abroad to starving people because we use 80 percent extraction flour instead of the customary 72 percent. Using 80 percent extraction flour taught us that degree of refinement does make a difference in the way flour must be handled in making yeast bread. In this circular we shall learn why wheat means so much to a world harassed with famine and how we can make better use of wheat by understanding the principals involved in breadmaking.
