Substitute For Rice And Corn Flour
0

11 posts in this topic

I am looking for a substitute for rice and corn flour in the gluten free mixes you make yourself. I want to make some bread, muffins, donuts, anything but don't know what will work as a substitute for the rice flours that most of the receipes call for.

Thanks for your help.

I like to use amaranth flour instead of rice flour. It is more nutritious than rice flour, and it does not have a strong taste. I actually like the taste it does have. I'm not sure about corn flour, but you should be able to replace it with just about anything.

I use sorghum flour for just about everything. It has a taste very similar to wheat. You can get the Bob's Red Mill from many stores. Or you can order it online from Twin Valley Mills (which is better and cheaper). I have taken some recipes and just exchanged it one and one for wheat (such as shortbread, mexican tea cakes, pumpkin bread). Also, there are recipes at Twin Valley's website. Here's a flour-combo mix with sorghum that works with almost everything - 2 cups sorghum, 1 1/2 cups potato or corn starch, 1 cup tapioca (and substitute that for all the flour in the recipe). I have many sorghum recipes, and a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is definitely as good or better than regular chocolate chip cookies. When I have a little more time, I e-mail it to you.

I was going to second sorghum as being a good substitute. I don't bake much (actually it's been almost 7 months since I've baked anything! wow!) but I have had good results with sorghum.

As a sub for cornstarch, I use arrowroot starch. It works fine.

I also sub sorghum flour instead of rice flour and use the same combo as Armita does. The bread in my avatar is from www.twinvalleymills.com, modified for a few more allergies though.

Armita, I'd love for you to PM me the chocolate chip cookie recipe too when you have a chance (if it doesn't have a ton of eggs in it).

I have been reading about some of you using coconut flour and having good results. But having to add a lot of eggs. Does anyone know what the adaptions would be if I substituted coconut flour. I am wanting to try several different ways of doing this.

Thanks again,

Yellow Rose

Armita when you get time I would love the recipe for your cookies!!!

Thanks,

Carole

Sorghum Recipes:

Chocolate Chip Cookies #1

3/4 cup sorghum flour (Twin Valley)

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1/4 cup potato starch

1 tsp zanthum gum

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup coconut oil OR palm shortening OR lard (no soy or casein)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp vanilla (gluten free)

1 egg (or egg replacer)

1 cup chocolate chips (enjoy life or chocolate emporium if you want soy & casein free)

1/4 cup nuts

Bake on 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Chocolate Chip Cookies #2 - has some rice flour

7/8 cup sorghum flour

1/8 cup garbanzo flour

1/8 cup sweet rice flour

1 tsp zanthum gum

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup shortening (see above for soy & casein free alternatives)

3/8 cup granulated sugar

3/8 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 cup chocolate chips (see above for soy free)

Bake on 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Sugar cookies -- Rolls out easier than wheat!

2 1/2 cups easy sorghum flour mix (see below)

1 tsp baking powder

2 1/2 teaspoons zanthum gum

1 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

1 cup shortening (see above for alternatives)

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

add potato starch or flour mix as needed until you can knead it. It is OK to work the dough as much as you want (or not to).

Easy Sorghum Flour mix: 6 cups sorghum, 6 cups corn starch, 5 cups tapioca.

Can substitute arrowroot starch. Can substitute potato starch but lesson amount to 4 cups.

CAN actually use ONLY sorghum flour (it won't be a total flop like some of the rice recipes).

Thanks, Arpita! We're in the mood for some cookies today so I'll be making some!

Do you always order your flour through Twin Valley? I have emailed them a few times and gotten no response so I wasn't sure. Should I call them? Is their flour better than BRM?

Hi Arpita,

Your recipe #1 looks great, and I'd like to try it. I'm wondering if I could sub cornstarch for the tapioca since I'm intolerant to tapioca?

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
