Cornstarch is the same as cornflour.

Sweet rice flour I don't know, but try glutinous rice flour from oriental supermarkets- it has pectin in it and can be added to other flours to make gluten free pastry that actually stands a chance of sticking together

This may be an old post but am replying just in case someone else gets routed this way. I have just bought Juwar (sorghum) flour via internet. I also got cassava flour. I cannot tollerate gluten and am looking forward to using these flours. They have masses of other lovely stuff too - worth a look

Garfava flour is a mix of Garbanzo/gram/chickpea flour and fava/broad bean flour. Proportions to use can be found in GF cookery books by the late

Don't know when you posted this so you may have your answer already, but cornstarch is just the American name for cornflour. They're exactly the same thing (I'm an American who's lived in Britain for the best part of 14 years, so I speak both "dialects"!). I'm allergic to wheat, dairy, soy, and sulphites, and have used both the Tesco and Sainsbury brands of cornflour without any reaction. As for "sweet rice" flour, I don't know. If normal rice flour doesn't work, perhaps grinding into flour some sort of short-grained rice (ie pudding rice) might work? I'd be surprised if the term didn't refer to white rice flour, though.

Good luck with your baking

Just thought I should let you know as a coeliac you shouldn't be eating East End products there not gluten free thanks to contamination from processing, I phoned to check. Ive been looking for Sarghum/ Jawur for a while but although I can find it I can't find specific GF brands Natco I think do but I have no idea where there stocked (and neither do they

I have seen that people have done gluten tests on some of the sorghum flour sold in the Asian shops and it does NOT pass the gluten test. Whilst the flour itself is gluten free obviously the method/manufacture process is not.

Does anyone know of sorghum sold in the UK that is actually guaranteed to be gluten free?

Just thought I should warn people if they are coeliacs and relying on using the flour from the ethnic shops
