  • Yield Makes 6 cups
Add to Shopping List


  • 4 cups superfine brown-rice flour
  • 2/3 cup tapioca flour or starch
  • 1 1/3 cups potato starch


  1. To measure brown-rice flour and tapioca flour, use a large spoon to scoop flour into a measuring cup, then level it off with the back of a knife. Do not use the measuring cup itself to scoop your flour when measuring; it will compact the flour and you will have too much for the recipe.

  2. Add both flours to a large resealable plastic bag, along with potato starch; reseal and shake until well combined.

Cook's Note

Keep refrigerated until ready to use, up to 6 months.
