    Sweet Rice Flour is the secret weapon you need to know about for your gluten-free kitchen. Despite the name, this flour is not sweet and acts more like starch in baking and adds moisture and a sponge-like texture.

    Also known as Glutinous Rice Flour, Mochiko, Mifen, or Galapong, this flour is made by grinding polished Californian glutinous milled rice. The term “glutinous” refers to the stickiness of this high starch Asian rice variety. Rather, this rice has a much higher starch content than other kinds of rice, making it an extremely efficient thickening agent for sauces or binder for things like mochi and noodles.

    Sweet Rice Flour is naturally gluten-free. Sweet Rice Flour will soon become the most indispensable flour in your gluten-free kitchen. It has a unique starchy content that becomes chewy and stretchy when cooked and so is an excellent mimic for the elastic properties of gluten.

  • Directions

    Reduce the flour, whether all-purpose or a gluten-free blend, in your favourite cake, cookie, or muffin recipe by 15 percent and replace it with Sweet Rice Flour.

    You can use 100 percent, Sweet Rice Flour, to replace all-purpose flour or cornstarch when breading fried foods or preparing a roux.

  • Uses

    This flour is commonly used for baking Japanese Mochi and Hawaiian Butter Mochi desserts but there are so many ways to incorporate Sweet Rice Flour in your cooking. Here are some tips to get started:

    - Use it to thicken soups and sauces
    - Add it to your baking to bind ingredients
    - Adds a great spongey texture to gluten-free bread, cakes, and muffins
    - Due to its lack of flavour, Sweet Rice Flour is great when used in delicately flavoured desserts like angel food cake or sugar cookies
    - Experiment by making your own gluten-free flour with Sweet Rice Flour as part of a blend with potato starch, sorghum flour, and xanthan gum
    - Use it to make a batter for fried chicken, fish, or vegetables

  • Storage

    Shelf life is expected to be 1 year if stored between 50°F - 55°F in a dry, insect, rodent, odor-free environment avoiding direct sunlight and high humidity.
