Frequently asked questions

Which grains are gluten-free?

Quinoa, Buckwheat, Millet, Sorghum, Oats, Amaranth, Rice, Corn, Teff.

Grains are often processed with wheat and may come in contact with gluten-containing grains in storage or during transportation. Make sure it is labeled gluten-free.

Does rice have gluten?

All natural forms of rice — white, brown, or wild — are gluten-free.

However, some rice dishes contain gluten: rice pilaf (often made with orzo, which has gluten), rice Krispies cereal (made with malt, which comes from barley and contains gluten), pre-seasoned packaged rice, rice made with sauce, rice made with added seasonings or ingredients such as soy sauce.

How do I substitute gluten-free flour?

Substitute one cup of all-purpose flour with one cup of gluten-free flour. Flours like quinoa, rice, almond, coconut, or sorghum can be the base for delicious baked goods.

However, they cannot be substituted for all-purpose flour without adjusting other aspects of the recipe. Look for recipes that have been tested.

Which flours are gluten-free?

The Best Gluten-Free Flours:

Buckwheat flour is suitable for vegetable pancakes, cookies, and other gluten-free baked goods. Make buckwheat flour, carrot, and spinach pancakes for breakfast or lunch.

They are delicious cold and can be used instead of bread.

Oat flour is suitable for pancakes, muffins, waffles, bread, crumbles, and other vegetable dishes. Its texture is more crumbly than regular flour and it has a sweeter flavor.

Rice flour. Brown rice flour has 60% more nutrients than regular rice flour because it is a whole grain. You can use it for baking, pasta, pancakes, desserts, or as a thickening agent.

Chickpea flour is used instead of eggs as a binding agent. For example in bean, chickpea, or cabbage patties (very tasty if you haven’t tried them).

Mixed with other flours in baked goods, as well as to make sauces, and spreads such as hummus, and grilled falafels. Cabbage pancakes are also delicious. You can use pea flour.

It is gluten-free. However, chickpea flour is more valuable. If you mix yogurt with chickpea flour, you will avoid curdling it in a hot dish.

Flax seed flour thickens sauces and drinks. It can be used as a substitute for eggs. They pair well with cottage cheese or yogurt.

Nut flour contains healthy fats and proteins. However, it is much higher in calories than regular wheat flour, so the serving size should be smaller.

Although, it is more filling as it has higher protein and fat amounts. Nut flour is suitable for baking cakes, bread, pancakes, and desserts. Almond flour is great for baking and cookies.

Coconut flour is suitable for flavoring soups, stews, sauces, or curd dishes. Every hostess should have it.

It is perfect for decorating desserts in place of powdered sugar. Particularly since they are sweet.

This gluten-free flour is my lifesaver. For example, when there is too much water in the dough, I add it and they absorb the moisture. You can use them to make healthy desserts like carrot cake.

Vegetable flours are packed with antioxidants. It is said that 1 tsp of veggie powder corresponds to 100 g of fresh vegetables. The only thing that will be reduced is vitamin C.

It is better to eat fresh carrots and other vegetables, but there are all kinds of situations where powder can be very useful. You can use such flours as natural dyes: carrots are yellow/orange, spinach is green, and beetroot is red.

Vegetable flours are suitable for porridges, pancakes, and omelets. They give color and an intense flavor to sauces. Carrot and beetroot flour sweeten dishes due to naturally occurring sugars.

Tapioca flour can replace eggs. Tapioca can be considered a source of “empty” calories since it provides energy but has almost no essential nutrients.

Can tapioca flour replace all-purpose/plain flour? It’s not ideal as a 1:1 substitute for baking cakes or cookies as too much can make bakes go gummy. However, it can be used to replace flour 1:1 when making sauces.

What snacks are naturally gluten-free?

Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, smoothies, eggs, guacamole, salsa, and hummus.

Are eggs high in gluten?

Eggs are completely gluten-free.

How long does it take to feel better gluten-free?

Gluten has a lasting effect and can make an impact on your body for up to two months.
