Rice grain to rice flour conversion using grain mill

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am getting a grain mill and now need to order the rice grains. I have Googled and can not find anything that tells me how many cups or ounces of rice flour I will get from say a pound of rice grain. Does anyone have the answer to this?

I got curious and went looking. I FINALLY found this: http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-How-to-Make-Rice-Flour/ 

I don't know how accurate it is but it says one cup of grain equals about a cup and a quarter of flour. Somehow that doesn't seem right to me. A cup of grain has a lot of spaces between the grains whereas a cup of flour doesn't. I'd think you'd get much LESS flour, not more. But what do I know? :lol:

Aw Barty, you are so sweet! You must have done a lot of searching to find that! Thank you! I looked & looked & looked and couldn't find anything so then decided to post here. 

I did finally think to post a question on the Amazon thread where I ordered the mill from. I got 3 varying answers but one lady said:

Depending on how fine you grind your rice, 1 cup of grain yields approximately 1.3-1.5 cups of flour

 

And another said:

I can only give you a guess based on years grinding different grains, not rice. This might give you a starting point 1 cup of rice = 1 1/2- 2 cups of flour. The finer you grind, the larger your volume.

For now, I'm figuring 1.5 cups yield per cup of grain. After I get it & use it, I can measure & know for sure.

I think the yield is larger because when ground, the grain is not as dense as when whole. It's all fluffed up with millions of teeny air pockets. I tried Googling the answer to that too & came up empty so I'm guessing at what I just said.

Hmm, I have some information of dubious value to share.  First off, I tried making rice flour with an old Hobart grinder I got off E-Bay a few years back.  It worked fine for pea flour and bean flour but with rice it just came out too gritty.  The rice is harder to grind up for some reason.  I am talking an old grinder maybe 30 years old tho.  I just got a big bag of rice at the grocery store to try it out.  You could try feeding it thru the grinder twice, might help if you have that problem.

I have another newer grinder but haven't tried doing rice in it yet.  I think it's worth trying to make yellow pea flour and maybe lentil flour too.  They have a lot more nutritional value than rice anyway.  The grocery store is a good place to get some and try it.  It's a good idea to keep the top of the grinder hopper sealed up with a plastic bag or something.  That ground flour smell attracts bugs pretty quick.  Of course they can be ground up too for even more protein in your flour.

Thanks GEE EFF. I got the NutriMill Classic Grain Mill. The reviews are great & I know a person who has one. She is not celiac but has ground rice in it for rice flour & her reports are glowing.

I've read good things about those mills in the past.  I got a Country Living Mill, manual crank version.   Seems to work purty good.  I just need to find someone to turn the handle now...  :)

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Yep, I figured I would need someone to crank it & I'm only getting older so cranking will get harder.

Well I'm generally considered pretty cranky but I guess that's not the same thing...
