I have been browsing the recipe sections and have noticed that ww flour is called for in some of the recipes. Since I can not have wheat, I was wondering if rice flour would work and if it is sb. I think there is even brown rice flour. Would that be sb?
Thanks,
joan

Joan,
I remember seeing that question before.
Don't really remember, maybe someone else does?
But, I think rice in all forms are not legal. That is with the except of brown rice, but I think in the flour form the GI value increases as it would be processed to make flour.
I think this is correct.
Take care,
Ed

What is your point?

Yes, rice is consumed several times a day here in Asia, but that doesn't change where it is on the glycemic index.

Just a point, the incidence of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke is huge here. Maybe secondary to an over consumption of high glycemic foods and the obesity that follows? Just a thought.

Also, there are plenty of fat people here! Not in the countryside, but in the cities, where processed foods are readily available. Also, there are vast amounts of sugar in just about every processed food here. They even have "sweet" spaghetti sauce!
Guess what the sweet is..........sugar!

Not many sugar free soft drinks are available here, the population isn't interested in buying them. So most (95%) soft drink are full sugar versions, there are a few sf versions available, but are usually bought by non-locals.

I really dont understand your point.

Take care,

Ed

Do you live in Asia? I imagine that is a constant temptation.

Hi Chana!

Blinkie,
I live in the Philippines. I moved here about 3 1/2 years ago, after retiring almost 6 years ago.
The rice is not very tempting, as brown rice is available here.

Take care,
Ed
