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 amazon.com 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.
