Our Organic Brown Rice Flour is gluten free, making it the perfect baking alternative.
Our gluten free organic brown rice flour is both light and nutritious, meaning that it is a great substitute in many baking and cooking recipes for gluten-containing flours. Be aware however that baked goods such as cookies and cakes will bake faster when using brown rice flour. Alternatively, this flour can be used in combination with other flours, such as all purpose varieties, or used to thicken sauces in both sweet and savoury recipes. This brown rice flour contains all the goodness of the whole grain, with only the outer, inedible husk removed before the rice is then milled. The resulting flavour is mildly nutty and earthy, meaning that it does not overpower the dishes that it is then used within.
Originating from the Oryza sativa plant, native to Asia, brown rice flour has become a staple in many countries such as China and Indonesia, as well as other parts of the world including South America and Africa. Because of its gluten-free properties, brown rice flour is often used in bread making, resulting in ‘wheaty’ tasting loaves, though many people choose to also make biscuits and puddings with it.
Brown rice flour is a great source of fibre and vitamins B1 and B6 and in addition to this, just one serving of brown rice flour contains 130% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of manganese, a powerful antioxidant.
