List of Ingredients

Rice, brown






Brown rice flour contains the whole bran where 60% of the nutrients of rice is contained.  Brown rice is naturally gluten free and usually does not present an allergen problem.  Some brown rice flour is produced in mills that also produce glutinous grains.  So if you are extremely sensitive, be sure to look for the "Gluten free" version that is produced in mills that are dedicated to that purpose.  We carry both the 'Organic' and 'Gluten Free' flours for your convenience.

Brown rice flour is flour which has been ground from unhulled rice kernels, also known as brown rice. It can be used as a flour substitute in many dishes, especially in combination with other flours. Since brown rice flour is naturally gluten free, many gluten intolerant individuals use it for cooking projects. 

Brown rice flour can be used as a straight replacement in things like roux and other sauce thickeners, as well as dredges or breading for foods. It can be combined with other flours for baked goods like as bread, cookies, or pastries. 

Brown rice flour does not behave exactly like wheat, so cooks should be prepared to experiment with proportions and grain mixtures. It also lends a strong, nutty flavor to food which may not always be desired. If you are concerned about this, you can use regular rice flour, made from grains which have been hulled as they tend to have a  milder flavor.
