Can I Substitute Almond Meal For Sweet Rice Flour?
0

9 posts in this topic

I printed off Gluten-free Girl's Irish Soda Bread recipe and wondered if it would make sense to use almond meal (I hope that is the same as almond flour?)in place of sweet rice flour (Whole Foods was out of it yesterday).

I am hoping to make it for our 12th anniversary on Sunday along with lamb and fixings.

Here's the recipe:

Almond meal is a coarser grind than almond flour, it also isn't sticky like the glutinous (sticky) rice. Almond meal might work, but the bread would probably be a bit heavier. Tapioca or amaranth flour might work better, and cornstarch should work, too.

Check the asian market or asian section of the regular grocery-sweet rice flour is also called Mochiko or glutinous rice flour.

Thanks! What is a good thing to use almond meal for? I just bought it.

Thank you! Do brands differ a lot at the Asian mkts or are they all about the same? I'm not sure how to know which brands are better at ethnic mkts.

The various flours and starches I buy come from Japan, Korea and Vietnam and Thailand. I haven't noticed any differences, except in price-much cheaper!:) In our local market, regarding the tapioca starches, one of several Korean brands was not as finely ground as the rest, but it was visible.

Almond meal show up in some recipes. For now, put it in a well sealed bag and pop it in the freezer to keep it fresh. Down the line, when you find a recipe to use it in, you'll have it ;)

So, are you saying to use almond meal when a recipe calls for almond flour?
