Rice powder, also sometimes called rice flour, is a finely ground powder made from rice. It can be made from whole grain rice or just specific parts of the kernel, depending on the desired texture and application. There are two main things to know about rice powder:

How it’s processed: The type of rice used (white, brown, glutinous) and the grinding method (fine or coarse) will affect the characteristics of the rice powder.
What it’s used for: Rice powder has a variety of applications in cooking, baking, cosmetics, and even some industrial uses.

Here’s a quick breakdown of its key features:

  • Texture: Rice powder can be very fine and light, similar to wheat flour, or slightly coarse depending on the grinding process.
  • Color: The color ranges from white (white rice) to a light beige (brown rice).
  • Flavor and Aroma: Very mild and neutral, making it a versatile ingredient.
  • Gluten-free: Since rice is naturally gluten-free, rice powder is a good option for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
  • Solubility: Not soluble in cold water, but absorbs water and thickens when cooked.

Applications of Rice Powder:

In Cooking and Baking:

  • Thickening agent: Similar to rice starch, rice powder can be used as a thickener in soups, sauces, stews, and gravies.
  • Coating and Dusting: Rice powder can be used to coat foods before frying or baking for a light and crispy texture. This is common in Asian cuisine for tempura or spring rolls.
  • Gluten-free baking: Rice powder is a common ingredient in gluten-free flour blends, helping to improve the texture and structure of baked goods.
  • Mochi making: Glutinous rice powder, made from a specific type of rice high in amylopectin starch, is essential for making mochi, a Japanese rice cake with a chewy texture.

Other Uses:

  • Cosmetics: Rice powder can be used in cosmetics due to its oil-absorbing properties. This makes it suitable for oily skin, often found in loose powders or makeup setting sprays.
  • Skincare: Rice powder can be used as a gentle exfoliant or as a base for homemade face masks.
  • Industrial uses: Rice powder can be used as an adhesive or binder in some industrial applications.
