Can I Substitute Almond Meal For Sweet Rice Flour?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I printed off Gluten-free Girl's Irish Soda Bread recipe and wondered if it would make sense to use almond meal (I hope that is the same as almond flour?)in place of sweet rice flour (Whole Foods was out of it yesterday).

I am hoping to make it for our 12th anniversary on Sunday along with lamb and fixings.

Here's the recipe:

Almond meal is a coarser grind than almond flour, it also isn't sticky like the glutinous (sticky) rice. Almond meal might work, but the bread would probably be a bit heavier. Tapioca or amaranth flour might work better, and cornstarch should work, too.

Check the asian market or asian section of the regular grocery-sweet rice flour is also called Mochiko or glutinous rice flour.

Thanks! What is a good thing to use almond meal for? I just bought it.

Thank you! Do brands differ a lot at the Asian mkts or are they all about the same? I'm not sure how to know which brands are better at ethnic mkts.

The various flours and starches I buy come from Japan, Korea and Vietnam and Thailand. I haven't noticed any differences, except in price-much cheaper!:) In our local market, regarding the tapioca starches, one of several Korean brands was not as finely ground as the rest, but it was visible.

Almond meal show up in some recipes. For now, put it in a well sealed bag and pop it in the freezer to keep it fresh. Down the line, when you find a recipe to use it in, you'll have it ;)

So, are you saying to use almond meal when a recipe calls for almond flour?

    • Welcome!   Did you get skin biopsies?  Some celiacs are seronegative.  They might not even have intestinal damage.  Instead most of  the antibodies (and damage)  are in the skin.  I do not have DH, but suggest you scroll though the DK section and get tips.  Specifically on how to coach a derm properly on how to biopsy for DH (or find a celiac-savvy derm).   It is NOT the same for other rashes from what I have read.  I do not think a person with a gluten sensitivity can have DH because DH is celiac disease.  It just presents differently.   https://www.allergicliving.com/2017/07/11/celiac-thats-skin-deep-the-mysterious-rash-sparked-by-gluten/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ I hope you find relief!

    • Thanks - this was my question, also very confused by conflicting advice. Think I may reschedule blood test, at present in 10 days, as although not gluten free, have eaten very little; two casserole mixes in 4 weeks, Trying to lose weight. Will have an endoscopy for Barretts oesophagus in April so makes sense to get the timing right. Think its unlikely to be positive but in a way hope it is! Ill for about a year now and the only bad blood result is folic acid, very deficient in spite of a very healthy diet, duodenum was inflamed at last endoscopy 3 years ago. I see two doctors as both are part time. First blood test was in Feb , second in Nov by which folate level had improved but still low. Both doctors have now mentioned celiac disease. Take Levothyroxine 150 mcg and TSH normal. Symptoms are more like anemia but no megoblastic anemia or iron deficient showed up. ECG normal Doc is also doing a thyroid panel, hopefully with T3 but haven't been thyroid tired; definitely more like anemia Was fine on Levothyroxine for 4 years. Apologies for rambling!
    • You should hit report when you see this nonsense  
    • I used mine for the first three years I was diagnosed.  I used it for several reason, one it protects me legally from a company letting me go if I exceed my sick/personal time off.  Some companies even have a max of unpaid time you can take, but the FMLA allows me to use that as well and not be affected.     I didn't have a manager that was treating me bad or anything like that, but companies have rules that change all the time and I didn't want to become subject to that.   Also due to privacy acts, my manager received a letter with the FMLA dates and approval and I then never had to give any details about my condition or disease if I choose not to.     Just keep in mind that because you have FMLA does not mean they have to pay you for time off it just protects you to not be penalized for taking time off.       Now that I have my symptoms and condition under control I let my FMLA expire and have not had to use it in years.
