Arrowhead Mills Rice Flour Being Bitter

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been using Arrowhead Mills Rice Flour for 1 1/2 years. Recently when I have baked with it, making muffins or biscuits it tastes bitter. I don't know if the flour in rancid or what but it tastes nasty. The worse time was when I made biscuits with Arrowhead Mills Rice Flour as well as with Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Baking Mix and when we added some turkey gravy to it, it became a chemistry experiement, amonia has created. My husband and I took one bite and could smell it and it tasted nasty :blink:

Has anyone else had this problem with flours? I have been trying to figure out if it is something else but the only consistant thing is the flour and maybe baking Powder. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If the flours have gone bad, that could be part of the problem. Smell them to determine this. I had to throw out some flours after this happened, myself.

The flours should be kept in the fridge or they will go rancid.

I don't like arrowhead mills flour, I find it bitter and gritty, though if you have been using it for a few years and been fine with it, you probably just got a bad batch. I've gotten a few gluten-free things off grocery shelves that have been sitting there a bit too long.

I keep the flour in the freezer and it seems I have bought multiple bags that do the samething. I guess I'll try a different brand.

Had the same problem with several of their flours. Called the company and was told that temperature changes can cause strange smell/color/taste. They were going to call the grocery store chain and inform them of the importance of room temperature storage. They thought that perhaps the warehouse was too hot. I personally used the products many times without problems and only had difficulties since this summer (the soy flour was the worst offender). And, like other people on this site, I keep mine in the fridge for freshness and I try to use it within a month. Call the company with the code number on the bag at least to register the problem.

Arrowhead Mills was the first flour I bought when I went gluten free. I didn't like the taste, but had nothing to compare it to. I use the ener-g flours now and am very happy with them.

We have a good Southeast Asian population in the vicinity so gluten-free choices abound. I've used asian rice flour for over 5 years and never experienced any problems. I initially tried US rice flour but the texture was a turn-off.
