Rice flour: pure and mixed with Type 1 flour
The allure and goodness of whole grain rice

Ideal for bread, pizza, biscuits and shortbread, cakes, fresh pasta,
gnocchi and crumb coatings
Rice flour is obtained by finely milling the grains of this totally gluten-free cereal which is why it is used in many recipes as a substitute for wheat flour, to prepare dishes for anyone suffering from gluten intolerance or coeliac disease. Since it does not rise well, it is advisable to mix 20% of it with other types of flour when making oven-baked products, cakes and fresh pasta that are easy to work, light and digestible.
The Rice Flour Mix was created by Molini Spigadoro to make it suitable for bread-making. Exclusive mixes combine rice flour and Type 1 flour, wheat germ and malted wheat flour to promote improved leavening without sacrificing any of the properties, colour, intense flavour and fragrance. These special ingredients, together with the nutritional properties of Type 1 flour, make sweet and savoury oven-baked products and fresh pasta easy to work, light and highly digestible.
Venere Black Rice Flour:

Venere Black Rice Flour comes from a variety of wholegrain rice, grown exclusively in the Italian Piedmont region in the Grange wetlands of Vercelli by the Filiera Riso Venere, certified by the Sapise Farming Cooperative which guarantees its origin, traceability and quality (Authorisation No. 801). Venere rice has many beneficial health properties thanks to the water-soluble vitamins, mineral salts and fibre that it contains which make it an ideal food for a healthy diet.
