Sorghum Flour is stone ground from 100% whole grain sorghum. It has a light color and texture and a mild, sweet flavor, making it a wonderful ingredient for gluten free scratch baking.


Sorghum originated in Africa thousands of years ago, and then spread through the Middle East and Asia via ancient trade routes, travelling to the Arabian Peninsula, India and China along the Silk Road. Today sorghum remains a staple food in India and Africa, and is growing in popularity in America. It's the third most important cereal crop nationally and the fifth most important around the world. The whole grain kernel is ground into a flour that can be used for cooking and baking.

Sorghum flour is a powerhouse of nutrition and adds a superb flavor to gluten-free baking. It is high in protein, iron, and dietary fiber, making sorghum flour welcome in pantries around the world. Sorghum flour is high in antioxidants, which support cardiac health. In addition, the starch and protein in sorghum take longer than other similar products to digest. This slow digestion is particularly helpful for those with diabetes.

Traditionally this flour has been used as a cereal food to create pancakes, porridges, beer and flatbreads throughout different cultures, such as jowar roti in India. In the United States it is becoming more common to use sorghum flour in baked goods. It can be added or substituted in any recipe that calls for flour like cakes, cookies, breads and muffins. While some gluten free flours, such as rice flour, can add a gritty texture to cookies or bread, sorghum flour has a smoother texture that many people prefer. Due to its very mild taste, sorghum flour is a great choice to incorporate into sweet breads, cookies, or the like. Add 15% to 20% sorghum flour to your flour mixes to make delicious breads, cakes, and cookies. Browse our extensive collection of recipes using sorghum.

8 Reviews For "Sorghum Flour"

  1. Perfect, hearty flour

    by Hannah on 10 Sat,2016


    I used sorghum by itself for several cakes and bar cookie recipes. It holds its own without the need for other flours, but if you're making a pie you should mix it with tapioca and sweet rice flour for a good crust.

  2. i missed sorghum flour

  3. Delicious and Mild!

    by witchdoctor on 03 Thu,2011

    This product is wonderful. It smells and tastes almost exactly like wheat flour. I use this as the main flour in most of my GF baking with wonderful results!

  4. mGreat Scone Recipe

    by Celeste on 03 Tue,2011

    I made the scones from the recipe on the package. They turned out so great that I ended up making them twice in one week. I substituted sour cream for the yogurt and craisins for the currants. I was very happy with the results.||I was pleased with the mild flavor and plan to try the sorghum/tapioca flour blend in sugar cookies.

  5. Use in baked goods

    by George on 12 Mon,2010

    Put it in baked goods to replace some of another flour such as wheat, corn meal, or rice flour. Adds nice flavor and increses the heartiness in your home baked goods. Nice addition when baking gluten-free.
