Shauna James' gluten-free Flour Mix
0

9 posts in this topic

I would like to try her gluten-free flour mix formula, but cannot use millet flour. Does anyone have a suggestion for substitutions? Brown rice flour doesn't seem to have any flavor and amaranth I use in small quantities.

I'm interested in hearing what you would use.

Here's the short demo:

200 grams sorghum

200 grams millet

300 grams potato starch

300 grams sweet rice flour

Shauna's theory is that there is an optimal ratio of starches/whole grain flours. I wouldn't substitute tapioca, arrowroot or cornstarch for the millet, any of the others would work, depending on the taste you are going for and what you are making. Just substitute the same number of grams.

The problem you get is that if you use something like almond meal or coconut flour is that it absorbs liquids differntly than millet does, so that will affect the end product. Bean flours give things a distinctive taste that some people don't like. Quinoa is useful, buckwheat is good but has a distinct taste/feel,as does teff. I use almond meal a lot in cookies and brownies as I like the taste.

Tapioca, cornstarch and arrowroot are all starches, so I don't think they would work. Her formula is 40% (400 grams) wholegrains, 60% starches (600 grams).

Great list! I have some chickpea flour never opened. Hum. That might just work. It's a bean flour, not wholegrain, but still...might work.

That's what I said. I said they wouldn't work.

The way I experiment:

I throw batches of stuff together, make up a pancake batter or waffle and go from there.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • 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!
