Using Select Multipurpose White Mix in Gluten Free Recipes

The humble ingredient of flour turns up in all kinds of foods, from bread to biscuits, from noodles to pasta. It’s even used as a thickener in sauces and soups. Unfortunately, if you’re following a gluten free diet, the flour these products normally use is strictly off limits, as is the self-raising and plain flour that you find on the supermarket shelves.

However, there are alternative flours that are not made from wheat that are naturally gluten free. These include rice flour, corn flour, quinoa flour, chickpea flour, almond flour and, despite the misleading name, buckwheat flour. Even when choosing a naturally gluten free flour, it’s still important to check that it is labelled gluten free. Some naturally gluten free flours are produced in the same factory as gluten containing flours and there may be a risk of cross contamination.

Glutafin Select Multipurpose White Mix

Each type of gluten free flour has its own properties, and each will produce a different taste and texture in your cooking and baking. For example, quinoa flour or tapioca flour will mimic the sticky, binding texture of flours that contain gluten, while rice flour gives a gritty texture to your gluten free recipes.

For the best results, choose a flour such as Glutafin Select Multipurpose White Mix. This is a specially blended flour mix that has been crafted to perform just like wheat-based self-raising flour. It has been created by the nutritional experts at Glutafin to give the ideal balance of flavour and texture, and is fortified with calcium and folic acid to support your nutritional needs.
