Flour is a fine and powdery substance.

It is the main ingredient in making bread or cake. Flour is created when the wheat dry grains are ground into a powder for human consumption. It is called the milling process. Wheat is the grain that is used the most to make flour , but other grains such as rice, oats, corn, barley, and potatoes can also be used to make flour. Actually, flour comes in a wide variety, each of them with unique properties and ideal applications. But the most common flour is made of wheat, the most commonly used for bread and cakes. Rice flour is a good substitute for wheat flour; in the Philippines, we use rice flour to make “bibingka,” a Filipino delicacy. Where to buy flour? You can easily find and buy it in many supermarkets, like rice flour, corn flour, and many other kinds. However, availability is subject to stock availability. If you plan to consume it, buy it in advance.
