SENSORY MILL FLOURS – HOW TO GUIDE

Sensory_Mill_gluten-free-healthy-flours

Gluten-free flours have come a long way in the past 10 years! A coeliac from back then would suffer through the gritty rice-based gluten-free breads that fell apart when touched or the limitation of rice bubbles for breakfast cereal, hard, tasteless ‘rocks’ for muffins and really, not many options at all.

Today, with the increasing demand for gluten-free choices, whether coeliac or not, sales and innovation continue to rise! What once was a bland, barren land of awful taste, texture and more often than not, simply missing out. Is now a haven of delicious, nourishing and impressively-close-to-the-real-thing gluten-free alternatives to pretty much anything you can think of!

Brands such as Sensory Mill not only offer gluten-free alternatives, but their innovative approach allows those with gluten intolerance to experiment in the kitchen using flours that are naturally packed with nutrition too!

Here’s how your customers can make the most of each flour as well as their individual benefits:

Apple Flour

The Apple Flour has been created from apple pomace leftover from juice pressing.

As a result, the milled flour retains the flavour and aroma of apples whilst providing a nutritionally rich product for consumers. Usually, these leftovers get tossed, but apple flour transforms them into an alternative flour that has up to quadruple the amount of gut-healthy fibre as white all-purpose flour!

How to use: Use this flour as a sauce, thickening agent or as a flavourful compound in baking. Use in combination with other flours like almond flour and banana flour or simply substitute regular gluten-free flour by up to 50%.

Bonus: It is naturally higher in sugar/sweetness than standard flours are so you can use less sugar in your baking!

Chia Flour

Chia Flour has been milled down from Australian grown chia seeds to form a light, gluten-free flour. It is an excellent addition to baking to boost the nutritional content of final products.

When cooked, chia flour produces a subtle nutty aroma and a light, fluffy texture making it a perfect baking flour.

How to use: Use chia flour to thicken soups, mix it with bread crumbs to coat chicken or fish, or use it as a flour replacement in baking!

According to The Nutty Scoop, “using all chia flour is ok for doughs that tend to be a bit thick or gummy anyway, but for more solid mixtures like cookie dough, it’s best to use a combination of 1 part chia flour to 3 parts gluten-free flour.

Chia flour also makes a great egg substitute in vegan and vegetarian recipes. To make chia egg substitute, mix 2 tbsp. of chia flour with ½ cup of cold water and let it stand for about 30 minutes. That makes about ¼ cup of egg substitute, which can stand in for one egg in a recipe.”

Benefits:

  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  • Good Source of Protein
  • Low Sugar
  • Good Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Kosher and Halal Certified

Chickpea Flour

Australian chickpeas have been carefully hand-selected, dried and milled down into flour for cooking.

Chickpea flour—also known as gram flour, garbanzo bean flour, or besan—has been used in parts of Asia and Europe for centuries.

When mixed with water it creates an ideal binding agent that can be used in making flatbreads, fritters or pancakes whilst adding a subtle nutty aroma.

How to use: Whisk with club soda for a tempura-like batter, make a roux for gravies or to thicken stews, or add to a veggie burger or fritters mix to boost the protein and help them hold their shape. You can also substitute up to half the amount of all-purpose flour called for in a recipe with chickpea flour.
