"Each substance in the gluten-free arsenal has different properties. One will strengthen, another will act as a tenderizer, and another will add moisture. Wheat has all of these properties, which explains why multiple flours are needed to stand in for just one," says Brown.

Baking tidbit: Refrigerate protein/fiber flours once opened, including brown rice, millet, soy, and sorghum flours.
