Looking For The Cheapest Source For Specialty Flours

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with celiac and am looking for a cheap source for specialty flours to make my own flour mixes. Does anyone know of any place online where I can order these flours? I did find a bulk foods warehouse that had a few of them, but not all. Overall the prices are high and shipping is worse.

Well, shipping is one of those things that seems impossible to avoid, and of course ordering a lot of flour means the box will be heavy. That said, my favorite place for flours and other goodies is www.barryfarm.com.

They do charge more for shipping than what I think they could, but then again I don't know their overhead costs.

I buy 25 lb bags of the flours I use often from Bob's Red Mill.

Hi Mary,

I'm fairly new to gluten-free too--and was turned on to Asian markets. OMG, you'll find all the rice flours, potato starch, potato flour, bean flours (lentil, eg), all for a fraction of what you'll pay anywhere else. I hope your town has an Asian population sufficient to support such a market--try it, you won't be sorry!
