Cup4Cup flours and mixes have a one year shelf life. Please refer to the “best by date” on each package.
You should store Cup4Cup flour and mixes just like you would store traditional flour. For best results, we recommend storage in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark area not to exceed 80° F, such as your pantry. If stored properly, the flour will last approximately one year, though we do recommend using the flour by the ‘best by date’ printed on the bag. We do not recommend storage in a refrigerator or freezer as these are moist environments that can be detrimental to the flour’s performance.
Yes, Cup4Cup works gram-for-gram and one cup of our original Multipurpose Flour weighs weighs 140 grams or 4.9 ounces.
Our Wholesome Flour is a nutrient-rich, 1:1 replacement for whole wheat flour. It contains added nutrition from natural sources of fiber and whole grains contributed by the brown rice, flaxseeds and rice bran. The taste, texture and performance of Cup4Cup Wholesome Flour is similar to whole wheat flour, resulting in baked goods that are heartier and more dense. You may use it cup-for-cup for regular flour in any recipe. However, due to the high fiber content, recipes may need to be adjusted slightly by adding a bit more liquid or fat, just like you would adjust recipes made with whole wheat flour.
We do not recommend Cup4Cup as a gluten-free flour replacement in bread recipes that require yeast, as Cup4Cup. This is because Cup4Cup lacks the structure and composition to mimic the rise and texture of yeast-based wheat breads. With that, making bread with Cup4Cup is not impossible; it’s just that the recipe will require some modifications and experimentation. For example, we have been able to modify a brioche recipe and develop this recipe for Brioche Rolls using Cup4Cup.
