FLOUR [moved from Florida board]

Does anyone know if I'm allowed to bring "Canadian Flour" (10 lb. bag) from Canada to the U.S.??

I was told that our flour is dfferent from the U.S. flour and I should bring my own, but want to do so legally!!!!

  1. The winter wheats grown in Canada have a different protein content, so yes, Canadian flours are different from American flours.

    You should be allowed to carry flour with you. That said, it does seem to tend on the particular border guard you get. Just declare it when you cross, and if the border guard that you get thinks you can't bring it in, you'll have to throw it away.
