I Need A Substitution For Soy Flour

Recommended Posts

I have several bread recipes using rice flour which is ok but some of the recipes also call for soy flour. I am allergic to soy. This presents a problem. I am new at this and not quite sure what I can substitute for the soy. Also, I have found that apparently I am sensitive to the bean flours as I get very tired after eating something made with them and I also get the "shiner eyes" as my husband calls them. Any help would be appreciated.

You can sub some coconut flour in. I use 1/4 c coconut flour per load of bread. The only flours I use are brown rice, coconut and sorghum. I also don't do well with bean flours or millet flour.

You should use any heavier flour that you can tolerate. I'm not sure exactly what it's made from, but I really like amaranth flour. It is a bit heavier and much more nutritious than rice flour. It also has a great flavor. It's my favorite flour so far. If only a small amount is required you could also try adding a bit of coconut flour. It is very high in fiber and adds a mild coconut flavor to the dish. If neither of these work, you could most likely try to substitute brown rice flour. It should not make that much of a difference. They are most likely trying to make the food healthier since white rice flour really does not provide much nutrition.

Thank you very much for the suggestions. I'll try the different flours. I am totally lost at this. It's kind of bad when your allergic to green beans, soy, onions, wheat, yeast and gluten to name a few. It doesn't leave much else. Baking/cooking has become an adventure now!!

    That's good to know. I have my MRI on a celiac disease as it was requested by an ENT consultant to take a look at but again this is someone who isn't looking in regards to gluten ataxia but I can mention it to them and also give it to...

    I had a brain MRI over a year ago which wasn't specifically looking for signs of gluten ataxia - it was more just for reassurance as I was right at the beginning of my balance problems. I have a further brain MRI planned in May and this...
