Gluten-Free Flours

There are a number of gluten-free flours available on the market, so it can be a challenge to decide which flour is best for different types of baked goods.

For flours that are made from grains (amaranth, buckwheat, corn, millet, quinoa, rice flours, sorghum, and teff), always buy them labeled gluten-free, since many are grown, harvested and processed in facilities that also manufacture wheat, barley, or rye and cross-contact can occur. When baking with gluten-free flours, unless it is a pre-blended mix, you will need to combine three or more flours to achieve structure, lightness, and good flavor. This is why you will see multiple flours called for in recipes for baked goods and in recipes for creating your own flour blends.
Unless otherwise specified, store flours in an airtight container for one to three months at room temperature or up to six months in the freezer.

Gluten-Free Baking Mixes

There are many brands of all-purpose gluten-free flour blends and mixes available, each with different mixtures of various flours. They are convenient, since you can substitute them cup-for-cup in wheat flour recipes, but they can be quite expensive. Choose a brand based on the ingredients you prefer. Varieties with bean flour can have a “beany” flavor and with a large amount of cornstarch they can give baked goods a firm texture, and rice flour can give a gritty texture. Ingredients on the label are listed in descending order by predominance of weight, so you can tell which flour dominates in any flour blend. Follow the instructions and suggested uses for each brand, but don’t hesitate to experiment!

When converting your kitchen to gluten-free, or creating a separate gluten-free area, it’s typically a good idea to start with dedicated gluten-free cookware and bakeware. If your kitchen is mixed, keep your gluten-free bakeware seperate and consider labeling them!
