Question Of Best Flour For Recipe
0

10 posts in this topic

First let me say I'm terrible in the kitchen but I'm trying!

I have a recipe that uses butter, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, baking powder, salt, white chocolate chips and shredded coconut. I made this before I knew I should be gluten-free and it was GREAT. It calls for 2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour. Was wondering what you guys thought would be the right gluten-free Flour. I was going to use Bob's All Purpose but read it has a pretty strong bean smell/taste?

I also have to watch my oxalates so Buckwheat would be no good. I think Tapioca and Potato Starch have acceptable oxalate levels used in small amounts. I would really like to try Bob's but read so many bad things. I have a very sensitive sense of smell and taste. Thanks!

I have not had any success with bobs red mill. If gives a very griitty taste. My personal preference for the rice flours is authentic foods which I mix with ENERG brand tapioca and potato starch. Authentic foods is not sold in many places. If I could only choose from my local grocer I would pick gluten free pantry flour before Bobs red Mill.

So you're saying you mix brown rice flour by Authentic foods with tapioca and potato starch? What would the amounts be of each?

This is Annalise Roberts blend from her wonderful cookbook ( everyone should have it) 2c.authenic brown rice flour, 2/3 c. potato starch ( notPotato flour),, 1/3 c. tapioca flouryou would have to add Guar Gum or Xanthan gum. Again the best cookbook...

I have used King arthur blend flour as a good substitute for basic PButter and sugar cookie recipes. You will need to add xantham or guar gum. I am finding guar gum to be less crumbly .

Thanks guys! So 2 cups authentic brown rice flour, 2/3 cup ptoato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and then how much Guar or Xanthan? Again I'm terrible in the kitchen. This is all new to me!

Or King's

One teaspoon of xanthan gum per cup of gluten free flour.

2 cups br rice

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch/flour (they are the same thing in tapioca)

___________

that is 3 three cups. therefore 3 teaspoons. mix well. measure out amount for recipe. put leftover in ziplock bag, label with ingredients and date, store in refrigerator for next adventure.

if you just wanted to use enough to make the recipe, 2 and a 1/4 cups, it would be

1.5 cups brown rice flour

.5 cup (half) cup potato starch

.25 cup (quarter) cup tapioca starch

about two teaspoons of xanthan gum, and maybe a pinch or a quarter teaspoon more, such as making one of the teaspoons rounder.

Other types of gluten free flours or meals may take less xanthan gum than those with a lot of rice flour (example,sometimes I post recipes that don't use any)

There are several acceptable blends of flour out there to try - it will be cheaper for you starting out to just buy a blend than go hunt out and purchase all the specialty flours. I am fond of:

Gluten Free Mamas Coconut Blend for cookies and desserts.

http://www.glutenfreemama.com/sales.htm

She has an Almond Flour Blend for regular baking that does wonders too.

I also like Better Batters Gluten Free Flour Blend

http://shop.betterbatter.org/

Very low maintenance for recipes you are trying to convert.

I am not a huge fan of gluten-free pantry or Bob Red Mill's gluten-free All-purpose flour

I've had success subbing rice flour in every recipe I have tried so far..I'm the type of cook who doesn't measure, but know if it's right by if it "feels" right haha. Any recipe that calls for flour I use half brown, half white, and add a tbsp of potato starch OR tsp of xanthan gum, depending on how "sticky" I think the product will be. For breads I use xanthan gum, for brownies I use potato starch.

Not the easiest way of going about it for some but I have yet to have a cooking disaster..knock wood.. :P

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
