"I haven't used this yet - but was glad to find it. For those as new to GF baking as I am, it is helpful to know that Potato starch flour means potato starch. Helpful. since potato starch and potato flour are not the same thing. Hope that helps someone! I'll let you know how my bread turns out."

"My Fiance has developed a gluten-sensativity this last year. I've used the pre-made all-purpose flours from the grocery store, but most had an weird taste to me. This is the only flour that I use when I cook/bake now! Its' awesome!"

"Interesting recipe. Thanks, Bernice, for submitting it. I am trying to go wheat-free since learning from my reading that modern wheat is nothing like that of our ancestors and is responsible for the huge rise in celiac disease and obesity. In searching xanthan gum on the web (see other reviews), I found that xanthan gum is a fermented corn-based product, whereas guar gum is from a legume. Both can be used in gluten-free cooking, but measure carefully! I plan to look for all of these ingredients (flours and gums) on my next trip to the health food grocery store. Thanks TOH for a fabulous website."

"This seems to be the best GF flour mix for baked goods that I have tried since my son was diagnosed with Celiac disease. You must use xanthan gum with it, however. Different amounts depending on what you are baking. I just use this flour mix & the xanthan gum in place of regular flour in my tried & true recipes for cakes, cookies, muffins, etc. that call for regular wheat flour."

"I just used the recipe for the first time. I am not GF but many of my family members are. I had a muffin recipe that I substituted this flour mix for. The muffins were good, but a little dense. Any suggestions, or is this the texture they should be? (I did use the Xantham Gum and baking powder)

Thanks, Aunt LaLa B"

"Many brands of brown rice flour can add an unwelcome grittiness to recipes. To lessen the grittiness, I grind up the brown rice flour in a coffee grinder and then mix up a batch of flour. I have also mixed the recipe with brown rice, as is, then processed the flour mix for about 5 minutes in a food processor to make the flour more fine. You also need to be aware that the shelf life of brown rice flour is more limited than white rice flour. I keep my brown rice flour and any flour mixes with brown rice in an airtight container in the refrigerator to extend the shelf life."

"I also use this mix. And to answer your question yes, Brown rice flour can substitute for white rice flour. For every cup of flour mix you have in recipe you need to add 1 tsp xantham gum or guava gum or you finished product will crumble."
