The second largest world crop, rice is a staple food in Asia where, unlike most grains, it is grown on small paddies and harvested by hand, just as it has been for centuries. The TRS Rice Flour is stone ground from premium California white rice. It is lighter, milder and easier to digest than wheat flour. Some people find white rice flour to be slightly gritty, but many find it preferable to bean flours. It is completely gluten free, including even glutinous rice flour, which is made from sweet rice and is a staple for making Japanese treats like mochi.
TRS Rice Flour can be used in a wide variety of culinary uses and is a very popular base for noodles in many Asian cuisines. It can also be used as a thickener in sauces, as a breading for fried dishes and as the base for various baked goods. Rice flour is very commonly used in gluten free baked goods to give them structure and substance, but it is also a popular addition for non-gluten free baked goods because of its unique and slightly sandy texture, Try adding a small amount of TRS Rice Flour to your yeast bread recipe to add some heartiness to your bread. As it does not contain gluten it will somewhat compact the bread dough.
