Function

Pre-gelatinized rice flour provides the following functions:

  • Viscosity Control
  • Texture Control
  • Thickening Agent
  • Bulking Agent

In gluten-free baking, pre-gelatinized rice flour can increase baked product volume by increasing dough viscoelasticity. Studies indicate that it acts as a binder that improves the dough capacity to retain water, thus increasing viscosity and helping to retain gas cells within the gluten free system.

In cake applications, the batters need to be sufficiently viscous to trap the air bubbles during mixing and baking in order to produce a voluminous and fluffy texture. Pre-gelatinized rice flour can help increase viscosity. In other studies dealing with shelf life, pre-gelatinized starches have shown to soften cakes and extend their shelf life.

A 2002 study on rice flour donuts found that the addition of pre-gelatinized rice flour to the formula yielded a higher dough consistency, higher moisture content in the donut and less oil uptake during frying.

About Our Flour

What is Pre-gelatinized Rice Flour

Pre-gelatinized rice flour can be made using a variety of processes that allows the starch granules in the rice flour to have increased absorption and better dough hydration. The type of process used to make pre gelatinized rice flours imparts different functionalities in the flour. Many different processes can be used such as drum-drying, spray-drying, extrusion/milling and milling of parboiled rice.

Uses for pre-gelatinized rice flour:
• Thickening
• Binding
• Increasing water absorption
• Reducing water activity

Applications

Pre-gelatinized rice flour rehydrates instantly in water providing a uniform high viscosity batter without the need for heat. It is useful as a thickening agent and binding agent. It is commonly used in gluten-free formulas, pie fillings, cake frostings and puddings. For best results in baking, it should be used in combination with other flours and starches.
