Sorghum and Garfava flour in the UK: from on 2003-04-03

Do you know anywhere in the UK I can get Sorghum flour? I've tried a Google search but can only find US sources. Also do you know where we can get the garbafava flour in the UK that US GF/Wheat intolerants are raving about?
Thanks David

I get my sorghum flour from FUDCO, 184 Ealing Road, Wembley, MiddlesexHA0 4QD
They also distribute it to ethnic shops in the midlands.

Buy in bulk and store in deepfreeze.

Do you have a telephone number for FUDCO, and will they supply mail order as we live in North Yorkshire.

My wife has just had her first real bread for over 18 months following your Gluten-Free Cookery recipes, cakes and pastry as well. We bought the book via Amazon and have already passed your deatils on to friends who suffer as well.

Many thanks,

Keith & Janet

Dear Peter,

Is the sorghum flour of a particular brand ( is it Jowar ? ) - I telephoned Fudco today and the gentleman was not helpful ( ie claimed he hadnt heard of these flours but was not a clear english speaker ) - do you buy the flour in person or by mail order ? Your advice greatly appreciated.

The flour is called Juwar in their ethnic community.

I have in the past had an order delivered through the post, but more recently I call on them on my infrequent vivits to London - well worth a visit.

I store the dry flour in the deep freeze until required - it should keep several years.

Sorghum via health food shops; garbanzo bean/chickpea/gram flour almost anywhere; fava/broad beans obtain dried and grind at home? - mix with gram? I guess

Just been playing around with the sorghum - quite nice flavour - actually I'm not sure how often I've seen it about over the years since I don't think I really knew what sorghum was even tho I had latched onto Bajra years & years back - you can make simple roti with both - perhaps the barja holds together a bit better than the juwar but might need more practise - it has a nice mild almost perfumed flavour - the bajra is more bitter
