      If you look under the Recipes, Breads & More tab, you will find several gluten free bread recipes. Gluten free flours all have such a different taste and texture, it all comes down to personal choice. So its best to try out a few different recipes, to find out which one is your favorite.

        In the recipe for cake & pastry flour, I will need to replace the corn starch with another type of flour. Can you recommend a flour or another kind of starch to substitute for the corn startch.

    I read on another site that you can substi equal amounts of ground flaxseed or ground chia seeds for the xanthan & guar gum because some people cant tolerate xanthan or guar gum. The reason I am asking is I am new to all this and it is a bit overwhelming. I'm learning all over again how to cook and what to eat so I want to get it right. Thank you for your site it is helping a lot.

      Great timing! I am working on an article about substitute's for gums right now - I'll let you know when it's ready! In the meantime...
      Here is a substitute you can try:
      15 grams ground flaxseed meal
      15 grams ground chia seeds
      60 grams boiling-hot water
      Mix the flaxseed and chia seeds together, the pour in water. Whisk until the seeds have formed a thick mixture. Allow to cool completely before adding to recipe.
