King Arthur Flour is a private, employee-owned milling company that produces natural flours from American wheat. Its flours have the reputation of producing consistent results and being free of bleach, preservatives and unnecessary chemicals. Although King Arthur Flour products tend to be more expensive than other brands, they are popular for both home and commercial baking uses.
King Arthur Flour produces several flours in its signature line, including all-purpose, bread, whole wheat, white whole wheat and cake flours. The all-purpose, bread, whole wheat and white whole wheat flours are also available as part of the organic line. In addition to flour, the company produces a gluten-free multipurpose flour and several baking mixes, including popovers, blueberry scones, cranberry-orange scones and cream tea scones. King Arthur Flour also produces several specialty types of flour, such as Sir Lancelot high gluten flour and Queen Guinevere cake flour, but these flours are not as widely available as the products from their signature line.
