Does anyone know if you can make your own rice flour? Is it as simple as griding up normal rice or is it more than that? Any ideas?

Any flour that you want to make yourself is just the grain (rice - any kind). If you want to do it you would have to invest in a grain mill. They aren't cheep, but they are worth it!

Not minute rice. And there are no silly questions.

I was thinking about getting a mill to grind brown rice as I need it. I would be sure of it being fresh that way since the oils can get rancid. So my husband was going to get something at out local health store and I had him ask the owner what is the best brand. He told my husband to get one with a hand grinder because the motor on the electric ones get so hot. So I take it the heat from the motor must damage the flour in some way. Just guessing since I wasn't there. Has anyone heard of this?

I grind medium grain brown rice in my 50.00 coffee mill. I use it for bread and muffins daily. It has saved me sooo much money. I was using my 10.00 coffee mill, but I blew the engine when I put in great northern beans. I have heard that if you are going to get a grain mill that k-tec is pretty good. I will probally get one because I like using the great northern bean flour.

Hello,

I'm new to the forum, but have also been considering making my own rice flour. I've been using the Authentic Foods finely milled brown rice flour. Can anyone who has tried making their own tell me if they can get it as fine as the Authentic Foods rice flour?

I've also thought about trying it with jasmine rice. Anyone tried this?

Thanks!

Ray

I just made some with Jasmine rice, but haven't baked with it yet. Does anyone know if you have to soak the rice before you grind it? I read that you should soak it 2-3 hours, then grind it with some of the water, place it in a cloth bag to drain the water. Then allow to dry before storing. Does anyone else do this?

you can't grind with water in a regular grain mill. rice takes a little longer to grind because it is a hard grain, but you don't want it wet.

I use a kitchen mill to grind my own rice flour. (It is a steel blade grinder like the whisper mill and the nutrimill.)

Be aware that sticky rice ground is the same as Sweet Rice flour. It is not the same as regular long grain rice.

I grind regular old long grain rice for Rice Flour.

We broke up Fava beans in a course corn grinder from the 1900s that was in our family. Then we put the Fava beans through The Kitchen Mill. But, here is the but, The Fava beans created a whole lot of racket in my grinder since they are VERY hard. I did not feel comfortable putting them through my kitchen mill. I also ground garbanzo beans. It seemed like it handled them a bit better than the Fava beans, but the grinder sounded labored.

I have felt much more comfortable with other types of beans, ie white beans, pinto etc...

Read the directions on your grinder and see what it is approved for. I bought my "The Kitchen Mill" here in Utah. I think the company is called Blend Tech. It used to be K-teck or maybe still is called k-tech. Google it and see I guess.

Do not try to grind beans or rice with a stone grinder. It will gum the stone up.

Also check out oriental markets. In Utah I buy potato starch, tapioca starch at an oriental market. They also sell fine rice flour at a deal of a price.

I grind brown rice for baking in my kitchen mill and use it interchangeably with white rice flour.

Just a word of warning "the Ktichen Mill" is as loud as a jet airplane. THe other mills are a bit quieter. But, the price was lower for mine. So I bought it. :)

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
