Rice Flour

SKU FIE0109

Applications & Usage

Uses Rice flour is made from ground raw rice and is used to make rice noodles and some pancakes, such as South Indian appams. It can be used to thicken soups and stews, as well as providing an alternative to wheat flour in cakes and biscuits. However, it's gluten-free so can't be used to make yeasted loaves of bread., Rice flour is a suitable substitute in baking cakes, muffins and other sweet products, but it's most commonly substituted in sweet breads, since it has no gluten, a necessary ingredient for firm wheat bread.
