I have been searching for flour I can use for baking biscuits since I found out I was allergic to wheat and gluten. My biggest problem for finding flour is that many products that are gluten-free either have soy flour or potato flour in them. This last week, I found a brand that doesn't have either! Moreover, it acts like wheat flour.
What is this wonderful flour I speak of?
I found Namaste Foods, Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend at Costco in Couer d'Alane, Idaho for a decent price. It was $9 for a five-pound bag. For Gluten-free products, that is AWESOME!
Amazon sells it also in a pack of six, 48-ounce bags for $53.68 (as of this posting). That's $8.94 for 48 ounces if you have Amazon Prime. If you don't have prime, then you will pay shipping.
Namaste Flour in Biscuits and Gravy
I made a few batches of biscuits with it and they taste pretty close to what I remember wheat biscuits tasting like. Some batches came out fluffier than others did. I am still working out the consistency part of it. I'll have a recipe on here by the end of the week. (Pssst, its dairy free!)
I also made gravy to pour over my biscuits. The gravy was very delicious! I really liked how the flour didn't clump up and the gravy thickened beautifully. I will have a recipe up this week for that too.
Tomorrow I will be making a loaf of bread with it to see how that turns out.
Overall? What do I think?
Overall, I am very happy with this flour. It seems to work like wheat flour. If you have used it, let me know what you make with it. I really like this one!
What are the ingredients to Namaste All-purpose flour?
The ingredients are Sweet Brown Rice Flour, Tapioca Flour, Arrowroot Flour, Sorghum Flour and Xanthan Gum.
Coming Soon! I have a recipe to try for all-purpose flour. Now I have something good to compare it to!
