What is “W”?

The “W” is commonly seen on specification sheets for Italian flours.  It is a laboratory measure used to gauge a flours’ bread-making capacity by classifying flour based on its strength.  A lower “W” value represents a weaker flour that will absorb less water and rise more quickly and produce a lighter product.  Conversely, a higher “W” value represents a stronger flour that will absorb more water and rise more slowly producing a gluten structure that is more resistant and strong.
