Additional Information:
Brown rice flour is made from ground brown rice. It’s considered a whole-grain flour and contains the bran, germ and endosperm. … Summary Flour made from brown rice offers a variety of health benefits. It can help lower blood sugar levels, reduce body weight and protect against heart disease.

Brown rice flour is a nutritious alternative to wheat flour and is naturally gluten-free. It is high in protein, iron, fibre and vitamin B. Brown rice flour is rich in manganese, which helps in the proper development of bones and cartilage.

In addition, brown rice flour has a better flavour than white – 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.

Finely ground rice creates rice flour and is a good substitute for wheat flour in recipes. Use a 3/4 to one ratio when substituting rice flour for wheat flour. … Add 2 tsp. of xanthan gum for every cup of rice flour used when baking a recipe that requires gluten, such as breads or cakes.

Storage Advice:
Refined flour is made from the endosperm of wheat with the bran and germ removed. It results in a fine, soft flour that’s light or white in colour. Refined flours include all-purpose, white, bread, cake, and self-rising flour.

Whole-grain flours are made from all three parts of the wheat or grain: germ, endosperm, and bran. This means the flour is high in fiber and nutrition, but it also means whole wheat flour will spoil faster. Whole grain flours included whole wheat, oat, rice, rye, nut (like almond flour).

The best way to tell if flour is rancid is by smell. If the flour has a musty, dusty smell or a sour smell, then it is past its prime. If it smells like flour should smell, then it is safe to use. Do not combine new and old packages of flour since it will shorten the shelf life of the new flour.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf:

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Suitable for home freezing.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
