It is essential that ingredient measurements are by weight and not by volume. This is because the density (the volume taken up by the same weight) of a gfv four for example varies – often considerably. This can have a major impact on the success of a recipe if using a gfv plain flour blend which differs from that on which the original recipe was tested. Different batches of the same flour can also have a different volume – for example if the flour has been compacted during storage.
