A reader recently emailed me to express her frustration with gluten-free recipes that call for commercial baking mixes. Like many people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, she has multiple food sensitivities including issues with corn and sorghum.
Herein lies the problem that so many gluten-free cooks face when trying to find an all purpose gluten-free baking mix that meets their individual nutritional needs. Gluten-free flour blends, both homemade and commercial aren't one-size-fits-all. Not at all!
There are literally dozens of gluten-free baking mixes on the market today. Some contain cornstarch. Some contain dairy milk powder. Some contain sorghum. Some contain bean flour. Some contain soybean flour. Some contain xanthan gum. Some guar gum. You get the picture.
