Flours That Can Be Purchased At Asian Or Oriental Grocery Stores
0

10 posts in this topic

Last week, I bought rice flour, sweet rice flour, and saw sorghum there. Did not see teff, brown rice, or any other kind.

Are those the only three flours that everyone else is able to buy where you live? The girl who could speak the most English told me if there is anything else I want to let her know and she would get it from the manufacturers. Nice!

Also, she knew I was a gluten-free person so she suggested gluten-free soy sauce and I bought that. It was something like $2.65 for a quart or something. Much better than I would have done at a health food store.

Tapioca is usually available there too. I have had no problem with Flying Horse brand for any of these flours. Much cheaper, isn't it?

I can get tapioca, and ground almond too. In fact, my local Asian market has just set up a gluten free aisle and is now carrying pasta and lots of other stuff too. Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon :) Of course, lots of folks like me shop at the the Asian market.

I find rice flour can be gritty. I found that my local oriental grocer carries rice powder. I use the rice powder in place of rice flour in some of my flour blends. It is not gritty at all.

The rice flour I bought at the Asian mkt was smooth as silk, but it does say in English "Rice Flour" (the only English words on the bag).

I will look for that brand next time I go. Thanks.

Mochiko brand was recommended by someone on this board and I bought that brand sweet rice flour. It tasted and worked GREAT in gluten-free Girl's Irish Soda Bread.

Sweet Potato Flour is another flour I forgot to mention that I saw there. Wonder what recipes would call for that?

See the posts from RiceGuy - he uses it all the time. I have never even seen it. My market carries the rice powder too - I thought I would try that next time.

THANKS! I did a search and never did find a definitive bread recipe that he posted.

I find Potato Starch at our local asian markets along with tapioca starch (flour) and white rice flour along with sweet rice.

At our local Indian Market I am able to buy sorguhm and teff flour- all much much cheaper.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
