So you’ve been diagnosed, and told to eat a gluten free diet. This does not mean you cannot make your own bread. In fact, milling your own gluten free flour and making gluten free bread from scratch is healthy, economic and fun. You can even use a grain mill like the one Zipporah has above.
Going glunen free means not eating wheat, rye, barley or oats. Or adding flour from this grain to any of your recipes. This seems difficult at first, but once you know what you’re doing, baking with gluten free flour becomes an easy routine.

baking with gluten free flour becomes an easy routine

When a family member needs a gluten-free diet they can still mill grain and eat bread from grains other than wheat. There are a many gluten free grains that are suitable for those on a gluten free diet. They include:
amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, chia, coconut flour, corn, flax, maize flour, millet, quinoa, rice, rice bran, rice flour, sago, sorghum, soy, tapioca and teff. Today we will look at these grains you can mill for your gluten free food.

Mill fresh gluten free flour at home

You don’t need to buy expensive gluten free flour for your baking. There is a down-to-earth family business whose art lies in the construction of grain mills that are well suited to milling such flour at home.
Thanks to the solid craftsmanship, I’ve been using their grain mills for ten years and never had a fault with them. I take pleasure in the detailed and obviously caring manufacture of the mills based on construction using natural materials.

This is the top stone that can mill your gluten free flour.

Natural stones in your mill

Some people prefer to have natural stones instead of manufactured mill stones like the one above. Natural stones in your family grain mill are worth considering if any you in the family have allergies.

This is what the manufactured Corundum ceramic stone looks like when we look close up.

Salzburger mills are created with alergies in mind, for those who have allergies to the corundum ceramic stone. Corundum ceramic stone is synthetically made and a natural stone in a Salzburger mill could overcome allergies associated with synthetic millstones.

To get one of the mills they make, you can buy them from their website.
