Rice flour. Brown rice flour. Black rice flour. There is a quite a few available in Japan, a ‘rice’ country. Rice flour is often used for ‘gluten free’ food.
Soba, buckwheat noodles is one amongst many of my favorite foods. Soba is an extremely popular food to the Japanese. Different type of soba drawn from local soba flour is so diverse, that I must say non-definable.
Gluten free food in Japan is not as popular as compared to other western countries, perhaps due to rice being our staple food, highly used as one (major?) ‘gluten free’ ingredients. However the knowledge of ‘gluten free’ and the effectiveness has become wide spread.
A quick recipe post on my Instagram Cooking. 米粉や玄米粉を使ってのグルテンフリー。小麦粉を使わなければいわばグルテンフリー。実は日本にはグルテンフリー食材が豊富に揃っています。あえて、グルテンフリーと騒がなくて「お米」「雑穀」「豆、大豆」と以外に適応できるものです。
