Brown rice flour is a commonly used gluten-free flour but can be used in a variety of uses and recipes, gluten-free or not.

Whole brown rice can be bought at almost all food stores. Because of its natural oils, brown rice does not store near as long as white rice. Buying packages of whole brown rice and grinding your own brown rice flour at home can be a real money saver when compared to buying brown rice flour on a regular basis.

Save Up-To $1.58/pound
Milling Your Own Brown Rice Flour

One of the best places I have found to buy whole brown rice in bulk is Costco, I am sure Sam’s Club is similar. I can buy a 12 pound bag of organic brown rice for $12.99, that is only $1.09/pound. Because they do not currently sale brown rice flour in the stores in my area I buy it from and I get enough that I qualify for the free shipping. To buy a 4 pack of 24 oz. Bob’s Red Mill brown rice flour packages costs $15.99, that is a wopping $2.67/pound. Do the math, if I were to buy bulk from Costco and grind it myself in my WonderMill grain mill I would save $1.58/pound. If you were to make 2 loaves of Chef Brad’s rice bread every week for a little less than 2 years, you would have your WonderMill grain mill paid for by brown rice flour savings alone.

    I was at Winco grocery store the other day and they had 25 lbs bags of brown rice for about $15, what a deal. I got it for making brown rice flour in my grain mill and it is saving me a lot of money. I totally like brown rice flour much better than white rice flour, it always gets me better results cooking.

    Does the brown rice need to be washed and checked for stones, etc., before grinding?

    • Jacob says:

      Some people wash their rice before use, I personally don’t and it doesn’t seem to change the taste. If you do wash the rice, make sure you have completely dried it out before grinding.

      I never check my brown rice for rocks and such unless it is bought from a farmer (sometimes labeled as an agricultural product) that may not have put it through a cleaning process. I use brown rice in my WonderMill quite a bit and have never had a problem.

    Hi there! I am planning to purchase a grainmill. We are gluten free due to a child with celiac disease. I plan to mill several grains but brown rice is a staple. I’ve been told by Mockmill that a stone grinder is not recommended bc brown rice will be gummy. Several people/bloggers seem to say otherwise and Mockmill website says any long grain rice is ok. My other choice is a Nutrimill Classic. Any recommendations or experience with brown rice being gummy in your Wondermill (as it is similar to Nutrimill).
