Does all-purpose flour vary regionally?

The major national flour processors use different blending formulas to take into account regional baking preferences. Since a southerner tends to bake more biscuits and the northerner more bread, the southern formula has a larger proportion of soft wheat and the northern formula has a higher proportion of hard wheat. This means that a recipe in a national publication calling for all-purpose flour may yield different results in different regions of the country.
