Where Do You Buy Hazelnut Flour?

I have looked everywhere, even at Nature's Pharm, the new ALMOST all gluten free health food store in Castleton and no one carries it.

Does anyone know where to order it?

If I could find a VERY affordable grinder, I could :)

While I don't know if it would work, I bought a Mr. Coffee grinder model IDS77 (larger capacity) with 3 grind settings, which I used to try and make brown rice flour finer. I don't know how fine you need it...I bought some BRM almond meal/flour and I think I could grind it like that. Is that fine enough...or do you need a true flour? I've also used a blender to grind flax seed. I can't imagine spending a lot of money to buy an actual flour mill.

ETA: I think I could put in about 1/2 cup at a time so it's much larger than my Krups coffee grinder, which has only been used for coffee.

It has mixed reviews on Amazon (like everything else) and obviously is meant to grind coffee beans. But it's so cheap, I figured I had nothing to lose.

Or possibly a blender, depending on how fine you need it.

Where I buy my hazelnut flour is: http://www.holmquisthazelnuts.com/Products/Hazelnut-Flour-1-lb__41603.aspx . If the link doesn't post, it is from holmquisthazelnuts dot com. Bob's Red Mill also makes hazelnut flour and that brand is available in most healthfood stores and regular grocery stores around me. It can also be ordered online at http://www.bobsredmill.com/hazelnut-flour-meal.html or on a m a z o n dot com. (The page wouldn't let that name post at all.)

I have tried making my own in my Magic Bullet, but I can never get the consistency correct. When I try to grind it finely, I have ended up making nice hazelnut butter or almond butter or sunflower butter or whatever I am trying to grind into flour. I am better off saving up money to order it "professionally" ground up. lol.

BRM's almond meal is next to impossible to bake with. So, if you want to bake with it, I would suggest trying to get it finer than that.

Interestingly enough, as the previous poster mentioned, BRM has a hazelnut flour that appears to be non-blanched, and from the picture looks fine enough. Wish they would do that with their almond flour! :blink:

Oddly enough, I just went by Whole Food's and they have it now. It's $12.99. Pass.

I get Trader Joe's almond meal and bake biscuits with it all the time. Good. VERY affordable. Use other flours WITH it.

I buy mine at NutsOnline.com.

I get their Almond flour too.

They also have Cashew flour which I am going to try next.

They grind it very fine...lovely stuff.

Yeah, BRM + WF= expensive

I use TJ's ALL the time. $3.99/lb. Can't beat it, AND it still has the skins which I feel just adds even more nutritionally.

I grind nuts in a blender all the time, just by putting in a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup at a time. It's an Oster Classic, and it's saved me a fortune in making nut flours. I pulse it a few times on high, and then whir it steadily a bit longer, it makes a nut meal pretty fast. I hope I don't jinx Old Reliable by praising it.

I don't have any trouble baking with it, it depends on the recipe and what you are making. It works very well in or on an oiled cast iron pan. I started out with just almond meal and have branched out to almond meal mixed with other gluten free flours, I tend towards trying to recreate a whole wheatish experience. ;)

I've made a lot of microwave breads with 1/2 almond and 1/4 sorghum 1/4 amaranth, with lemon juice and peel and poppyseeds or orange juice and peel and anise seed and honey. One egg and no gums.

    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
