Can you get a wheat-free alternative to semolina?

User Avatar
Semolina is 100% wheat, so a real alternative is not going to be that similar. You could try ground rice, which is available for the same sort of uses in the UK. Depending on what you want to avoid in the wheat, corn grits might work.

How do you make semolina for babies?

Semolina is a term that usually refers to the purified middlings of durum wheat, but can also refer to the middlings of rice, corn or other types of wheat. They are a by product of the milling process used to make flour and contain bran and germ, the portion of grains richest in proteins, vitamins, lipids and minerals. Semolina is cooked like corn meal by boiling about 1/3 of a cup of the semolina with 1 ½ cups of liquid (milk is probably best for baby) until it is thick - about 3-5 minutes.

Is white flour a substitute for semolina flour?

User Avatar
All purpose flour would be a better substitute then just normal white flour, but yes it can be used as a substitute. If you are using it to make pasta though, try to use the pasta immediately. If you don't, the pasta's going to be mushy, because for some reason the semolina is what keeps the pasta firm.

Is semolina whole wheat?

Generally speaking no, but there are a few places that do sell whole wheat semolina. The difference is that semolina is made from the endosperm of the durum wheat whereas the whole wheat version is made from the whole durum wheat without the separation of germ and bran portions.

Can one subsitute semolina flour?

User Avatar
Semolina flour is made from durum wheat. Often you can find it in the large bins at your local grocery store. If you are unable to find semilina flour, cornmeal can sometimes be substituted. when making pizza, semolina flour is often used to create a non-stick surface between the cooking crust and the cooking surface. In this cirmcumstance, cornmeal can be substituted, because like semolina it will not burn and smoke as much as regular all-purpose flour.
