All-purpose Gluten-free Flour Is One Substitute for Wheat Flour – Many Recipes Call for Other Gluten-free Flour – Now I Need Xanthan Gum and MORE Flour or Starches – I Need A Room Dedicated to My Gluten-free Flour and Starches –

Gluten-free flourMy Wheat Allergy has taken over my kitchen in more ways than one. I need an arsenal of products to prepare the many gluten-free recipes I’ve found on the Internet.

Gluten-free flour2All-purpose gluten-free flour is a combination of several kinds of flour and xanthan gum, a replacement for gluten. I’ve developed several recipes using all-purpose gluten-free flour, but I want to use more recipes that others have developed. Most of them require two or more of other gluten-free kinds of flour.

Steve and I found bulk sources of these other types of flour at Winco. I now have four of the different types of flour called for in recipes, tapioca, coconut, brown rice, and almond. I discovered this morning to my dismay that I need more kinds of flour and starches. I need xanthan gum, also.

I am determined to enjoy life in spite of my gluten-free diet, and I’m looking for others that have removed wheat from their diets. Perhaps we may encourage and learn from one another. I have read that celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity is increasing among our population. I have adapted to the situation over the ten months of gluten-free cooking and eating. I’m finally enjoying the challenge rather than moping about it.

  1. I’m glad I don’t have to worry about this gluten stuff. The only “flowers” I stay away from are the ones that make me sneeze like gardenias.

    • Ha! I cannot eat wheat, but I can smell the flowers without fear of sneezing. I’m glad you don’t have to worry about the gluten stuff. It’s not much fun. The restaurant issue is the most disappointing. Blessings to you, Carl…
