Sweet rice flour is a gluten-free flour milled from white glutinous short grain rice. Don’t be alarmed – it is only called glutinous because of its sticky nature. Sweet rice flour does not contain any gluten. It does, however, contain more starch than regular rice flours.
It is also an excellent thickener for puddings, gravies and sauces. And one of my favorite properties of sweet rice flour is that it retains moisture which helps keep baked goods soft, light and airy.
The brand I use is Authentic Foods Brand because it is so finely ground there no need any longer to add bean flour to my gluten-free flour mix.
