|English term or phrase: Fancy|
|The total flour is called straight grade, but various streams are taken from it to make different types of flour. For example,50% of streams lowest in ash and protein might be blended to make "fancy patent" flour.|
¿Harina de patente de lujo?
¿de patente de primera?
|harina refinada de lujo|
This is how I would render it. It means flour containing 40 - 60% straight flour (made mostly from the endosperm)
The 1st ref site has a great description:
"...Straight flour is considered a good flour to use for bread making. It is 100 percent extraction flour. The extraction rate is the amount of flour obtained from wheat after milling, when the bran and germ are removed, leaving the endosperm, which contains most of the protein and carbohydrates.
Patent flour is classified in five categories, depending on the amount of straight flour it obtains. Extra short or fancy and first patent flours are made from soft wheat and are used for cake flours. Extra short or fancy patent contains 40 to 60 percent straight flour.
The 2nd. site clearly states that "harina refinada" includes only endosperm:
"...La harina refinada solamente incluye el endosperma. El salvado y el germen contienen la mayoría de la fibra del grano. La harina refinada es baja en fibra porque se le ha removido el salvado y el germen..."
Fancy = elegante, de lujo
Por lo tanto: fancy patent flour = harina refinada de lujo.
