Our Sorghum Flour, also known as jowar flour, is stone ground from 100% whole grain sorghum. It has a light color and texture and a mild, sweet flavor, making our white sorghum flour a popular alternative to wheat flour and a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking.
Sorghum grains are unrelated to wheat, so they are suitable for those with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. Traditionally, this gluten free flour has been used to create pancakes, porridges, beer and flatbread such as jowar roti in India. It can also substitute for other grains in cakes, cookies, breads and muffins. Due to its mild taste and smooth texture, sorghum flour is a great choice to replace wheat flour in sweet breads, cookies and more—although keep in mind you’ll need to include a binder such as xanthan gum.

Sorghum is the third most important cereal crop nationally and the fifth most important around the world. After originating in Africa thousands of years ago, the grains 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. In fact, the sweet sorghum used to make sorghum syrup is grown in the American South, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Increase your daily intake of whole grains the easy way: add 15% to 20% sorghum flour to your flour mixes to make delicious breads, cakes and cookies. You can also browse our extensive collection of recipes using sorghum, from monkey bread to dinner rolls!
