Many of us who subscribe to the newsletter at Glutenfree.com were told about Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch, touting it as kind of a God-send to the gluten free community. Upon going to the site and learning it was no longer available in sample form, nor was there any place to buy it for home cooks, I pretty much chalked it up to another disappointment.
That is until I heard about Nearly Normal Cooking Flour from Jules Shepard. It CONTAINS this magical, miracle ingredient - and the rave reviews are coming in fast and furious. While most of the in-store locations for this product are in the East (Maryland, Minnesota and North Carolina), it can also be purchased at www.nearlynormalkitchen.com or www.julesglutenfree.com
The website www.nearlynormalcooking.com contains recipes, links to in-store locations, and much more for this highly touted product. I plan to get some and try it - many people say it gives their baked goods the loft and tenderness that is missing when using other alternative flours. I would love to hear from anyone else who has already tried this "miracle flour" to let me know if it lives up to the hype!
