Looking For gluten-free Food Translations Into Spanish

Recommended Posts

Does anyone out there know how to translate these gluten-free ingredients in Spanish? I can't seem to find them in Lima.

Fava flour (Is this made from ava beans? There are a lot of these out there.)

Sorghum flour (Translation software says this is sorgo or zahina, but no one in the health food

stores knows what this is. Perhaps it goes by another name. Please help me out.

If these are not available, what can I substitute to make bean flour?

While I don't have a direct answer to your question, I did a little searching and sorgo seems to be correct as far as the translation goes. I looked on

http://celiacomex.wordpress.com/2007/05/06...o-en-argentina/

and it was listed on the right hand side if you scroll down.

Here's a link with lots more information.

http://www.infoceliaquia.org/olga_martinez/el_sorgo.html ( http://www.infoceliaquia.org/ )

That link goes in-depth about cereals and grains.

Here's an email address I found online of a person in Peru, I'm not sure where, who was advertising homemade gluten free breads. They might be able to help you out.

I found in Mexico that a lot of people at the health food stores had never heard of a lot of things that were out of the norm. You might want to search for a celiac group in Peru or another Latin American country that could council you over email. I don't know anything about the bean flour unless you could find garbanzo bean flour there. Also, if you do online searches, be aware that sometimes you will find things under celiaca and other times under celiaco, so it's a good idea to run searches for both of those words.

I don't know if that's much help or not, but it gives you a few more links to check on.

Quinoa flour is pretty versatile, or so I've heard, and should be widely available.

They also grow amaranth there, so it also may be easier to find.

Not sure how well they sub for a bean flour, if the application is particular.
