Gluten-free basic recipes

Celiac disease is the only true "allergy" to food and therefore must be treated with caution, avoiding all foods containing gluten that refer to the world of cereals. Beyond celiac disease, we can be sensitive to gluten because we eat many foods that contain it and therefore it can happen that our body goes into surplus. Therefore it is always better to alternate flour and cereals and not limit ourselves only to the consumption of wheat-based products. To get to know them better, here is the list of flours available on the market

Flours with gluten: wheat, durum wheat semolina, spelt, Kamut (which is Khorasan wheat), rye, barley, oats

Gluten-free flours:

- of cereals or similar: amaranth, buckwheat, corn, millet, quinoa, rice, sorghum, teff;

- of legumes: azuki (red and green), chickpeas, beans, broad beans, lentils, lupins, peas, soya;

- fruit or oilseeds: banana, hemp, carob, chestnuts, coconut, flax seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, chia seeds, sunflower seeds;

- starches and starch: corn, rice, konjac, tapioca, maranta (known as arrowroot), potato starch

Below are some gluten-free flour mixes to be used to replace the flours normally used in traditional recipes and recommended for leavened doughs (cakes, breadsavoury and focaccias), for crunchy but elastic doughs (biscuits, pies and savory pies) and to make fresh pasta sheet.

Make the mix and use the amount required by the chosen recipe.
