MAIORCA Sicilian Flour
Maiorca wheat is an ancient variety of soft wheat that has been cultivated in Sicily for centuries, together with the ancient timilia wheat.
It is a soft white wheat cultivated in organic and niche crops due to its low yield (about half that of modern varieties).
It is a special wheat for several reasons:
Majorca wheat, a soft yet robust wheat, has a high protein content, about 8.5 grams of protein per 100 grams of product, mineral salts and vitamins, and the flour has excellent breadmaking qualities and has therefore been used for dough for leavened and unleavened cakes since ancient times.
It is also easily digestible and has a low gluten content, about 50% less than other commonly used grains.
Majorca wheat has long been used in Sicily mainly in the form of flour, for basic cake recipes. It is said that, in addition to waffles, biscuits and typical cakes, even Sicilian cannoli are made using this wheat flour.
It is also used for savoury pastries, tasty and highly flavoured white bread, pizza, focaccia, taralli or breadsticks.
This flour is very useful for creating an excellent, long-lasting and very strong sourdough starter.
The flour is obtained natural stone milling, which allows the germ to remain and, thanks to the low processing temperatures, does not overheat the product, preserving its nutritional and sensory characteristics.
