Self-rising Flour

5 posts in this topic

i've got this recipe book and sometimes it calls for "flour," sometimes for "self-rising flour." what the hell is the difference?? for the "flour" i just use an all-purpose which works fine, but will an all-purpose suffice, when the recipe calls for self-rising flour, or is there some big differenence between the two?

Self rising flour is flour with salt and baking powder already added. If you substitute plain flour for self rising, you have to add, I think, 1 1/4 tsp. of baking powder and a pinch or so of salt for each cup of plain flour.

These are the recipes I have for self rising flour. Frankly I haven't tried them yet.

Gluten-free self-raising flour #1

2 tablespoons potato flour

enough white rice flour to make it up to 1 cup

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon xanthan gum OR guar gum OR pre-gel starch

Self-Rising Flour #2

4 cups gluten-free all purpose flour mix (your favorite)

1 Tablespoon sugar

1/2 Tablespoon salt

2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder

Sift together all ingredients well, store in zippered storage bags.

Can be used in any recipe calling for self-rising flour.

About 4 1/4 cups

Gluten-free self-raising flour #3

1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour plus 1-1/2

teaspoons baking powder AND 1/8 teaspoon salt. Sift and mix it all

together well before adding the rest of the ingredients.

I hope this helps!

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
