Bread is one of the most difficult foods to replace on a gluten free diet. Even though the food industry is beginning to produce more gluten free products and especially breads, it is still difficult to find quality gluten free bread in restaurants or supermarkets.
Gluten Free Bread Tips
Baking your own gluten free bread can be challenging at the beginning but here are some tips that will make your gluten free baking easier:
For baking purposes, there are many gluten-free flours but all of them behave differently than wheat. This is because gluten is the ingredient that holds wheat bread together. It is important to learn about new ingredients and cooking techniques that will help you to make gluten free bread stay firm and let it rise at the same time.
All gluten free flours have different textures, for example, millet and sorghum produce dry baked goods. It is important to know which texture you want to achieve with your gluten free bread recipe, so you can choose the adequate flour.
One of the most important tips that we can give you is to measure accurately the ingredients of your recipe for gluten free bread and follow exactly the steps given in the recipe as small variations can result in a complete different outcome for your bread.
