Some healthy benefits of all-purpose mix flour
Contains tapioca starch
Tapioca starch works well in a number of recipes, especially for baking pies, making flat breads and creating snacks such as chips and wafers. Because tapioca starch is a thickener, it can be used to thicken soups, puddings and gravies. It also adds chewiness to a recipe.

Guar gum is a soluble fiber and helps your body digests and absorbs the nutrients from foods. It can help to thicken, bind, and stabilize the ingredients in foods. Guar gum also lowers cholesterol and helps to manage blood sugar.

Need some tips to cook gluten-free?*
1) Increase baking powder to your recipe 15 ml (1 tbsp.) per 250 ml (1 cup) flour, you’ll get a larger final product.
2) Let the bread dough rest for 30 minutes to one hour (overnight for pastes rice flour) before adding the yeast agent. This promotes a better texture.
3) Increase the amount of protein in the recipe to give more structure and to improve the quality of the final product. You can add an egg again, use evaporated milk instead of regular milk or even add powdered milk.
4) Stir well the flour before measuring and. Sift the flour with the other dry ingredients.
5) Use smaller pans for best results.
6) Add a bowl of water in the oven to prevent drying of gluten-free products during cooking.
7) Keep your gluten free products in airtight containers in the freezer. It will be less likely to harden.

|The Doom Bias|
|What has been the predominant prophecy on the planet? History shows us that it’s the scenario of Armageddon, where humanity destroys itself. That was supposed to happen at the turn of the millennium, or the year 2000. Remember the big scary prediction of 2012? The prediction was that we wouldn’t make it to 2013, since it was “the end of time.” Obviously neither of these predictions happened, as we are now several years past those dates! However, it appears that our appointment with doom is still alive, and just keeps being delayed. Why does our doomsday clock keep changing? Have we actually entered a new reality? If so, why is everybody still waiting for the end? Why do we have this “doom bias?” Interested? Then read on (smile).|
