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.
Gluten Free Recipes

of which sugars 0.9g

How do I store it?
The flour should be stored in an air tight container. It has a shelf life of 12 months (current batch October 2021) but this can be extended by storing the flour in the freezer.
Is it tested gluten free?
It is very important to me that anything I create is completely gluten free with no trace of contamination. For this reason the flour is manufactured in a totally gluten free environment. It is also tested for gluten using the R5 – Sandwich ELIZA (Mendez method) in an independent laboratory, Food Allergen Centre.
Being a small independent manufacturer I can’t afford to pay for the Crossed Grain Symbol.
Is the packaging recyclable?
Yes, the flour packets are made from paper so please recycle them.

Those placed after 12pm on a Friday or over a weekend will be sent out on the following Monday.
Due to the current situation there may be slight delays to this.
Can you deliver outside the UK?
No I’m afraid I only deliver to the UK. However if you’d like to know how to make this gluten free flour blend check out my online cookery courses where I teach how to make this blend along with how to use it.
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
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.
Love the plain flour, have found it very versatile.
Performs much better than rival brands in my experience.
Have used the flour to adapt my cooking to suit my husbands dietary needs from pies, pasties, scones and cakes to using it as a thickening agent in sauces, stews and casseroles.
We're all able to enjoy bread again...
After becoming gluten intolerant
The flour is fantastic. My daughter is a coeliac, my husband and I are not but we really enjoy the bread we make from the flour. We don"t have to worry about cross contamination, the bread is delicious!
It is better than competitors for making bread in a breadmaker with a few simple ingredients.
I was looking for a wholemeal gluten free flour and this flour ticks all the boxes! It is very tasty and doesn’t give that ‘white carbs’ suger rush you get with some gluten free flours.
I’ve also used Dove’s and it performs just as well. I think things made with free-from-fairy flour have more flavour and texture.
I have tried bread, pancakes and my favourite courgette and lime cake.
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!
The flour is lovely to work with and...dare I say it on this site..! it works beautifully in a bread maker, too!
I use the flour for bread making all the time and it's the texture which is so great, especially the crust which, with other flours, never gets that non-gluten feel to it; gorgeous.
I mainly make my own bread 'recipe' (made up over the years)
Delicious and nutritious free from flour.
I've use this flour to make the family pancakes which were delicious and have every intention to use it making pastry too...anyone who's gluten free will probably share my fear of making gluten free pastry but The Free From Fairy has also written an ebook on how to make pastry with her flour...It's on my to-do-list for 2017 to master the art of pastry once and for all!
I am getting on well with your flour. It tastes good and performs well in baking. I wanted a flour without rice flour in it for all the reasons you state on your website.
I've made Carrot cake, pineapple upside down cake and nut and fruit tea loaf with it.
