Sorgham Flour Vs Rice Flour
0

5 posts in this topic

I was just wondering what the difference is in using the two. I have only uses sorgham flour just recently in a bundt cake, it was mixed with rice flour, tap, flour and potatoe starch. The cake turned out wonderful. I have never tried it in anything else but would like to. Does anybody use it instead of rice flour or with rice flour or does it depend on what you are making. Thank you for listening for my rambeling.

I use a mixture that sounds pretty much like yours (minus the rice flour). I haven't used rice flour in awhile, (unless it was to dust something) I find it to be pretty crumbly. Sorghum is about as close as wheat flour (texturally, I think) that you can get. I prefer it to rice flour, and have made a lot of things with that mixture that have turned out great.

What I do is this,

I use sorghum mix in most everything except I don't bake breads much, but the ones I tried call for millet and sorghum, like the english muffins. Many on here use brown rice flour. I used to use the rice flour mix but thought it was a bit grainy or sandy so I switched. I still use rice on occasion for some things like today I made Oreos with it and I like it for mini pot pie crusts.

Sometimes I mix them in a recipe if I am short and don't want to mix up a new batch of gluten-free flour blend. Like yesterday I made choc chip cookies and was short about 1/4 cup so I used rice mix to make up the difference. (2 batches in 2 days, I hadn't baked cookies in weeks :P but some went into the freezer)

Sorghum is more like wheat. And has more protein than rice.

I always use sorghum for cookies and muffins and sweet breads...

I use it all the time, mixed with other gluten free flours or nut meals. I do an almond meal, potato starch, sorghum, amaranth and millet mix to make a bread that is like a whole wheat multi grain bread.

A lighter mixture that you just did, if it worked for a cake it should work for other types of sweet baking, as well.

I've also used it in pie crust but I'm still working on the texture problem, I have the taste part down but it's rather.... chewy. :huh:

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
