I just opened a bag of all-purpose flour (in Dutch it's called 'patent bloem' and French 'farine de ble') and I saw some black dots. Since I opened another bag of high gluten flour yesterday and found some insects in it, I am afraid it is also in this bag (though it is bought today). Can anyone tell if it is normal if there are black dots in this type of flour?

It depends on the type of flour - assuming it is not wholemeal then black dots are not usual and may well be weevils. If that's the case I'd take it back to the shop!

I think the only black dots I've seen in flour is Rye (crushed caraway seeds).

All other flours might be brown and have different colored bits in them, but other than Rye flour, the only black dots I've seen is bugs.
