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:

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
