Hi.

I was just wondering if anyone knew or had pointers on baking without starches?

I can't have tapioca starch/flour (similar side effects like gluten) and arrowroot seem to not agree with me.
I cut out Nightshades due to reactions so that eliminated Potato Starch
Yellow Corn bothers me and Corn in general makes me bloat and too much = problems (sorry TMI).

Originally I was doing Potato Starch and Corn Starch but now with eliminating Potatoes I am just left with Corn Starch.
I made some waffles the other weekend and tested out subbing all the starches with corn and that was a no no it tasted normal BUT... did not react very well to it.

What do people do that cannot have or do starches? Do you just sub with more flour?

Any input is greatly appreciated
Thank you!!

Yes, check out the almond flour recipes. Also, there are other grains out there that may work for you if you can handle them... buckwheat, teff and others. Carol Fenster has a bunch of flourless cake recipes too; try googling that and see what you come up with!

Good luck!

You can find sweet potato starch in asian food stores. From what i've read, they are not part of the nightshade family. I've not used it in my cooking but it's worth a try.

Can you no have rice flour either? There are three different kinds: white, brown and sweet (or glutinous, as it is sometimes rather anomalously known).

Thank you for the posts about the book. The book looks really neat and the price was good compared to other books.
I bought teff the other week but got the whole grain by accident so have to grind it to flour and try it. Never tried Buckwheat will have to try that soon.

WOW the pizza looks really good and very easy to make. I am printing off the recipe to try very soon. Thank you so much! I saved the site to look through more later.

My main flours I have are Sourghum, White Rice Flour and Brown Rice Flour. I haven't tried the Sweet Rice Flour yet just because I live in a smaller town and cannot find it anywhere and haven't driven to Las Vegas yet to get it at Whole Foods (hopefully they have it). I was just in CA visiting family and looked at Henry's for it but nope.

Sweet Potato Starch... very interesting. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I know we do not have any stores like that near me but will look for it. Thanks
Thanks again for the posts. I will take a look at the SCD thread on here.

I don't recall seeing it at Whole Foods. You can always find it in an Asian market.

By the way, I really like buckwheat flour and use it quite a bit because I am limited in my flours too. I tried putting some Teff flour in pancakes over the weekend and it was very sandy/heavy and soaked up all the liquid which I had to keep adding and adding.... I will need more experience with that--maybe try some of Carol Fenster's recipes.
