Organic Whole Long Brown Rice Flour
Country of Origin:
Our organic long brown rice flour is a great substitute for wheat flour, since most wheat flour contains gluten, a protein that can irritate the digestive system or worse for anyone who is gluten intolerant.
Rice flour is a popular thickening agent because it has the ability to prevent liquid separation.
It works great in soups, sauces and gravies and is often used to make crackers, cakes and dumplings. It is high in insoluble fiber that helps ease digestion.
What is the difference between brown and white rice flour?
- Brown rice flour is made from whole grain rice while white rice flour is made from white rice, which contains no bran (the bran is stripped from the rice in order to make white rice). Therefore, the nutritional value is decreased in white rice flour.
- In addition, brown rice flour has a better flavour – nutty and slightly sweet, which makes it a better option for baking sweets such as cookies and cakes. White rice flour is tasteless. In terms of texture, brown rice flour will often result in a slightly heavier product versus white rice flour.
- So depending on the heavyness and taste of what you are making, choosing the right rice flour makes a difference.
- Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
- Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
- Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
- Mason jars make great storage containers.
- Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
