Rice Flour (also called rice powder) is a form of flour made from finely milled rice. It is distinct from rice starch, which is usually produced by steeping rice in lye.

 Rice Flour is different from Sweet Rice Flour (Mochiko) which is made from “sweet” or “glutinous” rice (which ironically does not contain); this rice is starchy and serves well in gelling product.

Production

Rice Flour is derived from rice after the husk has been removed, and the remaining raw Rice is ground into flour.

Culinary Uses

Since it is gluten-free, it is commonly used in gluten-free cooking, from Thickening a Sauce to making Pasta to Baking. It is also used to thicken product in refrigerated and frozen foods since it helps to stop liquids from separating.
