Gluten-free baking solution
Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods announced the release of its Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, which allows bakers to easily replace wheat flour in any recipe.
“We spent countless hours in the kitchen developing the perfectly balanced gluten-free flour blend that really eliminates the frustration and intimidation that we hear about from our gluten-free consumers when it comes to gluten-free substitutions,” said Matthew Cox, vice president of marketing at Bob’s Red Mill. “Not only does this flour provide the simplest conversion to a gluten-free recipe, it also provides results that are very similar to wheat flour.”
The baking flour contains a blend of gluten-free components, including whole-grain brown rice flour, wholegrain sorghum flour, sweet white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum, which are processed in a 100% dedicated gluten-free facility.
The flour is available in stores around the United States with a suggested retail price of $4.95 for a 22 oz bag.
