It's okay. Quinoa has lots of protein and can be used for baking-- when as a flour and can be used as a second or third substitute for when cooking different types of potato/rice dishes. :-)

My favorite type of low carb. flour is Almond. I use Quinoa for a side dish or a potato substitute. :-)

Where would the millet, sorghum and buckwheat that I use fit in here?

It goes under Other/None of the Above. Your answer/reply is in the right place for where to put the choices you use when letting everyone know them, though. :-)

I use fiberflour, keeps sugars stable, put together by a doctor whose patients have diabetes it has pre/prebiotic (isk which don't remember lol) in

It's okay. :-) I never knew there was a flour that had a lot of fiber in it. Thank you for the information. :-)

I use Almond/Gluten Free flour when baking/cooking. What gluten free flour do you use? :-)

I use Freee gluten free flour (is it Doves Farm - Ive got plain and SR there’s a dove type bird next to the name) mainly and sometimes almond and I thicken things with a bit of cornflour but I tend to avoid products involving flour because the carbs in the products I would be making with it would spike my blood sugar.

Gluten free.

I use an almond flour that's gluten free. :-)

my favourite is quinoa but oat flour's really useful too.

I use the oat flour in some of my pancakes and muffins and after reading about Jerry's success with quinoa flour I add it to my usual wheat flours too for extra protein as neither my husband nor I need to be gluten free.

I really like almond flour and I will have to try quinoa in a few weeks when I can get some quinoa flour and use it for a few meal ideas.😀👍
