Rice flour (also known as rice powder) is a form of flour made from finely milled rice. It is distinct from rice starch, which is usually produced by steeping rice in lye. Rice flour is a particularly good substitute for wheat flour, which causes irritation in the digestive systems of those who are gluten-intolerant. Rice flour is also used as a thickening agent in recipes that are refrigerated or frozen since it inhibits liquid separation.
Rice flour is very commonly used in gluten free baked goods to give them structure and substance, but it is also a popular addition for non-gluten free baked goods because of its unique and slightly sandy texture.
