Bob's Red Mill's Sorghum Flour, also known as jowar flour, is stone ground from 100% whole grain sorghum. It has a light color and texture and a mild, sweet flavor, making our white sorghum flour a popular alternative to wheat flour and a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking.
Sorghum is the third most important cereal crop in the U.S. and the fifth most important around the world. After originating in Africa thousands of years ago, the grains spread through the Middle East and Asia via ancient trade routes, travelling to the Arabian Peninsula, India and China along the Silk Road. Today, sorghum remains a staple food in India and Africa and is growing in popularity in America. In fact, the sweet sorghum used to make sorghum syrup is grown in the American South, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee.
