Jiva USDA Organic White Rice Flour is from quality, organic Rice. Organic white rice flour is a favorite ingredient for gluten free baking, lending a light and delicate sponginess to baked goods. It is also great for breading and thickening soup, sauce, or gravies.
The refined version of organic brown rice flour, organic white rice flour can be used interchangeably with brown rice flour. The second largest world crop, rice is a staple food in Asia where, unlike most grains, it is grown on small paddies and harvested by hand, just as it has been for centuries.
It is lighter, milder, and easier to digest than wheat flour. Some people find white rice flour to be slightly gritty, but many, including myself, find it preferable to bean flours.
White rice flour is naturally gluten free, rich in carbohydrates and low in fat. Jiva Organics Rice Flour is also USDA certified organic.
White rice flour can be used to bake cakes, cookies, dumplings, breads and more, as well as thicken sauces and coat fish and other proteins. It is also very popular for the preparation of a variety of Asian noodles, which are a staple in Eastern cuisine.
