Do you love to bake with gluten free flours as much as I do? I bake with them mainly for health reasons. At 42 years old (time of writing this blog at least), I just cannot digest gluten filled foods as well as I used to (up to my late 30s). Consumed in large quantities or regularly (for me, more than a few consecutive meals), I get bloated, fatigue, and lose appetite for other foods. But I am not surprised really, because the body is never really meant to digest gluten. Gluten irritates the gut lining and hence the integrity of our immune cells (which line our gut).
A baking enthusiast, I don’t want the perils of gluten to dampen my passion. So, I turn to these places in Bangkok to get my nutrient dense gluten free flours.
- Sunshine Market
- Radiance Wholefoods
- Gourmet supermarket’s baking aisle
- Villa supermarket’s baking aisle
When you look in these places, I guarantee that you will see the gluten free flours world is more than just potato starch, white rice flour and tapioca flour. If you love and need, for health reasons gluten free flours as much as I do, you will find yourself in a baking paradise when you visit these shops. Almond flour, amaranth flour, coconut flour, chickpea flour, cassava flour, quinoa flour, buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, red rice flour, oat flour, hazelnut flour….the list goes on!
