Gluten-Free Flour Blend

As found on Organizing Junkie:

1 cup brown rice flour
1 1/4 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup potato starch
2/3 cup tapioca starch
3/4 cup sweet rice flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 tsp xantham gum

She suggests keeping it in the fridge, pre-mixed and ready to use as a replacement in any recipe calling for all purpose flour.

***I don't use sweet rice flour. I just use more brown rice and white rice flour. Just make sure it totals 3 cups of rice flour for the mix. This works beautifully as a replacement in any recipe for all-purpose flour. I have never had a problem with substituting it in ALL of my recipes!!!***

Thank you Sheree. I'm going to try this. I've never seen sweet rice flour in the market, have you?

Annie- I have seen it at Whole Foods in my area, or Fred Meyer. But if I can't find it, I just use an equal amount of brown and/or white rice flour. Good luck!

So I'm wondering what you think about the study that came out recently about high levels of arsenic in brown rice? Which means it's in every brown rice by product. I was very disappointed to hear this because I'm trying to be GF and we also don't buy things with HFCS which means brown rice syrup. No good.

It is definitely concerning! I do think someone would have to eat a very high amount for it to be a significant health risk, but over a lifetime, that could happen. I dont really eat a ton of processed foods that have brown rice syrup...are there really many alternatives?
