Reviews for Gluten-Free Flour Mix
"Bob's Red Mill Xanthan Gum does not contain gluten."
"I made a double batch of the flour mix. I baked the Biscuits For Two Recipe from Taste of Home.com substituting the flour with the Gluten-Free Flour Mix. They turned out delicious.Thanks for sharing this recipe, Bernice."
"Can you substitute rice starch instead of potato starch?"
"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."
"Just so you all know, xanthan gum contains wheat... therefor not wheat free"
"Excellent mix. I add a couple of tablespoons of xanthan gum to the mix, though. Made muffins and cornbread so far with this mix and both have gobbled up!!"
"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."
"Thanks for this recipe! Made chocolate chip cookies using 3 1/4 C instead of the 2 1/4 flour called for and they are delicious!! YAHOO!!!"
"Just a question. Do you use this Flour Mix in place of regular flour in the same amounts in recipes? Thank You."
"This is the only flour mix I use now that I am gluten-free. It's seriously the best one out there....maybe the cheapest too!!!"
"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"
"This is a great mix. I am not GF, but have many dear friends that are and all have loved what I have made. Do alot of baking. When I make my bars I use the same recipe and just convert the base to GF"
"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."
"Can you use this flour anywhere for allpurpuse flour in regular recipes?"
"I just bought gluten free flour and it had some other products in it but they also recomend xanthan gum be added. This one looks much cheaper than the one I bought. I plan to try both and compare results."
"This is like the landolakes.com gluten free flour blend. They add 1 teaspoon xanthan gum.I make this with brown rice flour and use it cup for cup in any recipe. Works great!"
"I def. think the sub. would be fine. They're very interchangable."
"I think I am gluten intolerant and will be going gluten free soon to find out for sure. The hardest thing for me will be giving up bread/flour products. I love that you put this recipe out there. I have a question though...can I subsitute the white rice flour for brown rice flour?Thanks,zachsmama03"
"I use this flour mix too. I think it's the best one out there. Probably the cheapest too."
