Flours that are free from wheat and gluten.
At Healthy Supplies we have found and listed a vast range of gluten-free single grain flours and flour blends to be used in all forms of cooking. When using these flours in gluten free baking, your recipe is likely to require additional baking agents
to help the dough rise and to stay moist & springy.
To keep your flour sealed and fresh, use a medium or a large sized freezer clip and store in a cool, dark place.
Single grain flours
Each bag of single grain flour has a different quality to add to your cooking or baking. Many are lower in calories but high in fibre and protein, some are sweet, others nutty. So substituting or adding these flours to recipes can change the flavour, texture or health benefit of the final outcome.
Amaranth flour is very similar in texture to Coarse Cornmeal which is often used to make Polenta. Amaranth is naturally gluten-free and has a high starch content making it ideal to add some stickiness to other gluten-free flours.
