Celiac Gluten Free High Priced Flours

31 Dec

As I work with Gluten Free products, I am trying to figure out why the “flours” are so prohibitively expensive.  A five pound bag of regular wheat flour, white or whole wheat can be purchased for under $3.00. 

 

Yesterday, I scoped out prices of the gluten free flours at Whole foods in Boca Raton, Florida.

For one pound packages of the alternative flours,prices ranced from 2.79 for corn meal, $6.99 for Potato Flour (better to buy it amongst the kosher items, cheaper). teff flour $7,99 , 9A STAPLE IN eTHIOPIAN COOKING) AMARANTH FLOUR $7.95, AND MILLET FLOUR AT 3.49….

This obviously increases the costof all of the baked coods.

I did not see oat flour, srorghum, buckwheat or quinoa. as flours….

Of course, I buy my cornmeal by quaker Oats in the Baking aosle at the local grocery….

Would love some insighton these expensive products.
