Substituting Flour

Recommended Posts

While ago I posted about what can I substitute tapioca flour/starch with. I received back two replies to sub with arrowroot sub 1:1. The only arrowroot I could find was Arrowroot, Powder.

I just wanted to check before I did the substituting to make sure this is correct b/c the people in the health food store looked at me iffy about it when I said what I was going to do.

In the Incredible Edible Gluten Free Food for Kids cookbook it calls for 1/2 cup Tapioca Flour to make Mock Flour Tortillas. I cannot tolerate tapioca flour/starch so I need to sub.

Please help.

*I have been cooking with other recipies but always avoid the ones I really want to do b/c they have tapioca in them and I am not familiar/understanding substituing quit yet.

THANK YOU!!

I did a search for a sub and found this: http://www.foodsubs.com/ThickenStarch.html Scroll to near the bottom and it lists what to sub for it. I hope it works, if not just look up tapioca starch substitutes.

If you can eat corn but want a stretchy tortilla for a burrito, try adding xanthan gum or guar gum to masa and then rolling it extra thin - or at least thinner that a standard corn tortilla.
