    The kind I buy on the island is called flour for Ζαχαροπλαστικής and another brand is simply called μαλακό αλεύρι. Just be sure you don't buy self-rising flour, unless that is what you are after!

      Can someone tell me the difference between the blue and red bags of flour sold in Greece. Red in the UK is plain and blue is Self-raising? Help please

        Blue is hard winter wheat = bread flour

        Red is soft wheat = cake flour

      Anything marked Farina is self raising flour.
      As the other member said the red packets, malako are soft flour , more like a cake flour with out additional raising agents.
