Hi ,
Just wanted to put my .02 cents in on this flour question.

Regardless of the type of flour used, the compositon is basically the cam=
Moisture 12-13%
Protien    11-12$
CHO        74-76%
Fat              1-1.5%
Ash                0.5%
Info comes from 'Practical Baking' by William Sultan.
As a baker, I think tat its the fat content in breads or the added sugars=
 in combination foods, pizza, that are the culprits.  When I have plain =
hard rolls my bolus covers it just fine, but if I binge out on croissant =
or danish (unglazed) My regular bolus doesn't cover.  I think this is bec=
ause the croissants that I make are  64% dough and 36% butter.
Any other Food Science folks out there.  Take care.
