White 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 white rice can be bought at almost all food stores and stores almost indefinitely in the right type of conditions. Buying whole white rice in bulk and grinding your own rice flour at home can be a real money saver when compared to buying white rice flour on a regular basis.
Save Up-To $3.06/pound
Milling Your Own White Rice Flour
One of the best places I have found to buy whole white rice in bulk is Costco, I am sure Sam’s Club is similar. I can buy a 25 pound bag of cheap white rice for $8.99, that is only $0.36/pound. Because they do not currently sale white 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 white rice flour packages costs $20.48, that is a whopping $3.42/pound. Do the math, if I were to buy bulk from Costco and grind it myself in my WonderMill grain mill I would save $3.06/pound. If you were to make 2 loaves of Chef Brad’s rice bread every week for just 1 year, you would have your WonderMill grain mill paid for by savings from white rice flour alone.
