In simple terms, GfG is similar to adding gluten to your flours and is a superior replacement to xanthan gum which has traditionally been used as a binder in gluten free flour recipes.

Suggested flour blend using GfG
2 parts rice flour + 1 part maize starch + 1 part potato starch.
Add 1 part GfG to 5 parts of this blended flour (20g / 0.6oz GfG to 100g/3.5oz flour)

Why not CMC or Xanthan Gum?
CMC and Xanthan are both single function additives.Both will provide some binding properties but have limitations in baking or cooking. As a comparison to xanthan, baked goods with added GfG result in greater
volume and a more uniform texture.

Where do I buy it from?
Orgran GfG is currently available in Coles and Woolworths/Safeway supermarkets in the health food aisle, independent supermarkets and health food stores. If you are having trouble locating Orgran GfG or would
like information on overseas availability details, please contact Orgran on 03 9776 9044.
