Rice Flours Explained...

RICE FLOURS HAVE SOME THICKENING PROPERTIES BUT ARE GENERALLY USED IN GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR MIXES FOR BAKED GOODS – THEY ARE FOUND TO PRODUCE SIMILAR RESULTS AS USING WHEAT FLOUR.

If you’re looking to avoid wheat flour that contains gluten, rice flour is an option. Rice flours are ground from long- or medium-grain rice, the same kind most of us probably have in our pantries. Rice flour types are naturally gluten-free and nutritious alternatives to using wheat flour. They have some thickening properties but are generally used in gluten-free flour mixes for baked goods, and they are found to produce similar results as if you were using wheat flour.

White Rice Flour:

Using white rice flour in your baking will produce results that are light in color. Combined with other gluten-free flours, you can make light, airy, fluffy cakes, flaky pie crusts, and bread. It is also great for thickening sauces, gravies, and soups.

Brown Rice Flour:

Brown rice flour imparts a rich, nutty flavor and will add a darker color to your baked goods.

Sweet Rice Flour:

Sweet rice flour is ground from short-grain glutinous rice, aka “sticky rice.” Don’t worry, though; the fact that it’s called glutinous rice doesn’t mean that it contains gluten. Instead, this rice has a much higher starch content than other kinds of rice, making it a very efficient thickening agent for sauces and a great binder for desserts or noodles, and it’s the primary ingredient used to achieve the desired shape in Mochi, Japanese rice cakes. What’s more, even though it’s called “sweet” rice, it’s not sugary or sweet at all. The flavor is mild and almost milky.

Hi, I'm Kymberley, the creator of GfreeDeliciously and the Amazing, Glorious Journey Programs. I pray that my work will inspire you to honor your body through God and Good Food from the inside out, all while enjoying your Amazing, Glorious Journey!

Take a peek at the behind GfreeDeliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!

Thanks for stopping by!
