Flours have always been kitchen staples in Thailand and around the world for centuries, but for Thai people, rice is a way of life. It is woven into our daily life from how it is grown by farmers, harvested, and milled before it is cooked to accompany other dishes, or processed further to make other types of foods or used for non-food purposes.
Besides Thai, Chinese, Japanese and all varieties of Asian rice, rice is indigenous to virtually every continent and consumed around the world. Rice is typically consumed as a staple or in the form of rice flours in countless ways that reflect the beauty of each region, ethnic culture and traditions, and can even be used to mark ranks and status of people in some places.
There are two methods that people traditionally used to make rice flour. Wet milled is made by simply grinding soaked raw rice or glutinous rice with water. Dry milled is made by grinding dry rice into fine flours. Both types of rice flour are suited to making all kinds of food and desserts.
Over time, new processes were devised by merging traditional methods and modern techniques to better meet changing lifestyles.
