The Silver Lining

Gas prices are up. Food prices are up, especially grain prices. So here - at last - is an article about the benefits of using rice flour* instead of wheat flour to cut calories, fat, sodium, and cost. I have hopes that if wheat prices climbed high enough it will lose its universal ingredient status.

And I'm sure that the "please stop putting high-fructose corn syrup in every damn thing" lobby will be following this with great interest. Of course, if the nation's supply of corn ends up in gas tanks, then there will be less of it in our food.

Go Rice flour! Go Rice bran!

*Yes, I noticed who paid for the study.
