Market – Synopsis

Many baking recipes, among other applications, utilize a combination of hard wheat and soft wheat flours, commonly known as “all-purpose” flour. However, the increasing awareness of gluten’s negative effects in cases of sensitivity or low tolerance has prompted the substitution of wheat flour, by some percentage per recipe, with other types of flour and ingredients. Wheat-germ flour is higher in proteins, vitamins and minerals, and can replace one third of wheat flour in most recipes. Other non-wheat substitutes include rye flour, oat flour, rice flour and corn flour among others. Both rice flour and corn flour have nearly half the amount of protein as wheat flour and also do not form gluten. Both these flours are deemed good substitutes of all-purpose flour. Furthermore, functional flours based on rice and other pulses are used as bakery ingredients.
