    • Wheat Free Flour Mix #2

      1 lb. barley flour (contains slight amount of gluten, check with your dr to see if it's allowed in your particular case.)

      1 lb. potato starch flour (not plain potato flour)

      1 lb. fine-ground maize flour

      6 tsp. bread soda

      3 tsp. cream of tartar

      Combine all into a bowl or container, blending well. Store as you would any flour. Use as a substitute for white wheat flour.
      * Caution: Read labels. *
      Some products have hidden wheat or gluten ingredients.

        I am enjoying seeing all the gluten free recipes here, but why would you post a recipe that contains barley flour in this list? Barley is in the wheat family.

        Pure wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds) do not contain gluten.
        In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in its finalized gluten-free label rules, has said that wheat grass and barley grass could be used to make foods labeled gluten-free, as long as the finished products contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten.

        Can you please re-label this as WF (wheat-free) flour? Even the FDA admits that someone with celiac can experience damage to their villi at levels of gluten as low as 0.4 mg per day. Twenty parts per million is about 6-10mg on a typical, strict GF diet. We don't need any "extra" damage! Thanks.
