Dictation exercise B2
So their hands and hair became white "from" the flour. De --> from (the origin of the whiteness, the flour)
That's how I see it.
Hope this helps.
Flour is an uncountable noun
Just to add to Jim's answer: in English you can also say: his hands were white of flour. This parallels the use of de in French.
