    Rice flour

    Rice that has been ground into a very fine powder is Rice Flour. Rice flour is primarily made from polished broken rice and is therefore usually whiter than wheat or rye flour, it is usually ground more finely also. Rice Flour can be made from short grain rice which when grinded is very fine in texture whereas rice flour made from long grain rice is used to make a soft, light bread and other baked goods. Depending on the variety of flour used, the consistency of the foods may range from very light and soft to somewhat gritty in texture. The flour is principally starch, plus a small amount of protein. The starch is waxy and makes an excellent gel.
