The Story Behind My Award Winning* Gluten Free Flour BlendAs a scientist and mum of a child with coeliac disease, food allergies and intolerances I developed my unique whole grain gluten free flour without rice to nourish her with wholesome nutritious food.
It’s important for me to know that she is getting vital nutrients along with protein and fibre whenever she eats, and having found no suitable flour blends on the market I created my own.
Now I know that whatever I make for her, from pasta to bread, cakes and pastry she is getting some goodness with every mouthful.
On its own it can be used to make:
- Flatbreads (wraps)
- Pizza bases
- Pastry (shortcrust, rough puff, choux and Danish) and more
With the addition of baking powder (1tsp per 100g) it can be used to make:
- American pancakes
- Soda breads
- Waffles and more
One bag of flour is all you need for all your baking.

Excellent. I'm allergic to a protein in wheat and rice so this was a godsend!
Performed really well.

I've been following Vicki for some years via her website
The flour is amazing, the best flour bar none. And I've used a few.
I've made bread, cakes, sponges and a whole lot of other stuff you'd normally think of with flour, thickening, cooking, and general baking. I don't do a huge amount as I'm single and like to watch my weight, so I resist making cakes apart from when I've got the house open to my Church and they love the cakes as I make them all GF and people never seem to realise that we're all eating the same thing, but they taste so good. Highly recommend, to quote an old advert, "Why choose cotton, when you can have silk.?"
I love your flour. I have used both self-raising and plain flour and I would continue to buy even if the price increased.
It performed just as well as others I've tried and I didn't need to use any additional raising agents
I've made sausage rolls, mince pies and banana bread with it so far.
No rice = no arsenic
I've been desperate to find a gluten free flour that doesn't use rice flour (I'm concerned about arsenic levels in rice, and the amount of rice flour used in gluten free food). I was so excited when I found this flour. I've used it so far for cakes, waffles and breads and all have been amazing. An added bonus is that it's wholegrain. I love it. I can highly recommend it.
Early days for me with this gluten free game and as a mere 77 year old male I have struggled over the last 18 months or so since I found that I had a problem with wheat and found it difficult to eat either in or out. The great majority of GF products and meals are revolting, the GF flours I have tried are gritty and tasteless. The flour is expensive, especially for a pensioner, but food should be enjoyed and as my old mum always told me back in the 1940s/60s " you only get what you pay for with any commodity, so don't go for the cheapest".
To date, I'd say this flour was far better than your competitors.
I've made Bread, Scones, Yorkshire puds and fruit crumbles with it!
One of the best flours I've ever used
"It's very rare these days that a basic free from ingredient makes me stop and think as there are so many out there that all serve a purpose. But the wholemeal GF, WF and rice free flour from Free From Fairy is that one product.
This has to be one of the best flours I have used. It is so versatile and easy to use. From tacos to tarts pasta to pies this flour is amazing. I have taken to using it more and more.
Not only that but the story and Vicki’s support is brilliant.
Try it! You will be amazed and if you're stuck on how to use it then check the website for some inspirational recipes."
Best 'free from' flour I've ever used...
I have been using Vicki's flour for a couple of months now and I have to say that it's the best 'free from' flour I've ever tried. So far, we've made baguettes, sauces, chocolate cake, brownies and pancakes with this flour and it doesn't have the grittiness you find in blends rich in rice flour. Our pancakes taste a lot better than before with this blend and I won't go back to other flour blends!
Fantastic free from flour!
I love, love, love this flour, so versatile. It's lovely to have a gluten free flour that works in all baking and cooking and is healthy and nutritional too. It makes a refreshing change from lifeless, white powder that has the absorption of a sponge! This flour looks good and tastes good too.
Lovely Tasty Quick Bread Alternative!
This is a lovely tasty and quick bread alternative, thank you Vicki. I like to make it alongside a 'picky tea' or with soup or a stew. My only problem with the recipe is the 'leave to cool' part! 🙂 I can never resist the warm end of a fresh baked loaf!
I always feel left out when I make it for the family. So tonight I made pizza for them the usual way & used your plain flour to make mine. I expected to have to put a jacket potato in the oven as I'd anticipated the base failing (I've tried alternative flours before) but no! I've just had the most delicious little pizzas.
They've all tried a piece and really liked it.Ff
