How to make homemade rice flour:
Pass the rice through a strainer to get rid of any dirt. It is not necessary to wash the rice to prepare your homemade flour. If you do, let it dry very well, because if you grind it while it is still wet, the flour will absorb the moisture and you will have a paste as a result.
Pour all the rice into your blender or grinder food. Make sure it has the strength to grind grains. Blend until the rice is ground or until it is the exact consistency you want.
If you want the flour to be even finer and perfect for preparing sponge cakes or other pastry recipes, sift it.
Save your rice flour in an airtight container and enjoy it when you need it! Not sure where to start? What do you think of these recipes?

Benefits of rice flour
The main benefit of rice flour is that it is an excellent alternative for those who suffer from gluten intolerance. Consuming rice flour gives us the same benefits of cooked rice, such as reducing cholesterol, regulating blood sugar and fighting constipation.
Depending on the type of rice that we use for the flour (white or whole wheat), the flour will have a lower or higher portion of fiber, which also helps improve intestinal function. In addition, it is a rich source of energy for athletes, since brown rice has some 388 calories per 100 g. Due to its vitamin and nutrient content, rice flour offers us practically the same benefits as wheat flour, without the need to consume gluten.
In addition to using it for desserts, you can use rice flour to thicken sauces or other preparations. Of course, when making it at home, this flour does not have artificial preservatives, so we recommend using it quickly or preparing only the amount you need.
