Weevils in the flour

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I regularly bake with either Gold Medal or Pillsbury flour and cant see any differences in the final results. I have also spent more money on King Arthur a few times, but havent seen any reason to pay their higher prices in the long run. My concern with Gold Medal lately is the frequent inclusion of weevils in my GM. I go through flour pretty quickly so the bag doesnt sit around long. I havent noticed this bug problem previously with GM, but they seem to have it more frequently lately.

Pros:
  • Generally a reliable flour with good results at a reasonable price
Cons:
  • Problem lately with weevils in the flour

User's recommendation: Return any Gold Medal flour if there are weevils in it.

I have been a loyal customer of Gold Medal Flour for the past 60 years. My pie crust and sponge cakes with Land o Lakes Butter have always been perfect.

The pie crust has been flaky always using the same recipe., the sponge cake rising nicely (using appropriate baking powder.) This past year the same sponge cake recipe, came out "flat" even though using appropriate baking powder. My pie crust, (which I am known for) using the same recipe of Gold Medal Flour, Land o Lakes butter and appropriate cold water, has come out "tough", not flaky, a huge disappointment for me and my grandchildren. I will have to find another flour that works.

What have you done to your wonderful flour? Dolores Reid

I was put on hold and my question was not answered. I was transferred to a voicemail, and I hung up.

Horrible customer service, and the company needs to inform the public about the hazards of flour dust.

Flour question

I was unaware that flour can create a dust cloud, and inhaling it can be dangerous. Also, I did not know that there could be e coli in the flour.

Bugs in flour dated 9/2023!

Bought 2 bags of flour with expiration dates for September 2023 : both contained tiny brown bugs. What is the point of an expiration date?
