King Arthur Flour has been our flour of choice ever since we first started baking. It's a reliable product of consistently high-quality, and definitely can't be blamed for any of our baking flops! We are so happy to see the company come out with a line of gluten-free flours and mixes so more people can benefit from their excellent products!
King Arthur's new gluten-free multi-purpose flour is the one product that has us the most intrigued and excited. It's a blend of white rice flour, brown rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch. The product description says that it can be used in place of the flours called for in any gluten-free recipe and most regular baking recipes (except bread recipes, for which they have a different mix). Having this pre-mixed multi-purpose flour would take a lot of the guess work out of doing it ourselves and add a level of consistency to our gluten-free baking.
They're also offering seven flour mixes, including ones for chocolate cake, brownies, muffins, pancakes, cookies, pizza crust, and bread. Recipes for using these mixes in a whole variety of baked goods are available through their website.
More than anything, we appreciate the King Arthur stamp of approval on these products. Not only are we confident that they have been well-developed and thoroughly tested, but we also trust their assurance that the products were manufactured in gluten- and allergen-free facilities and are actually gluten free. They're even certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization, whose standards are even more stringent than the FDA's.
There's a lot of great information on the King Arthur website, plus the products themselves. Check it out!
