Water Chestnut Flour
Water chestnut flour is a gluten-free and grain-free flour made from the dried and ground rhizomes of water chestnuts, which are aquatic tuber vegetables. Water chestnut flour is rich in dietary fiber, low in calories, and contains essential minerals such as potassium and manganese. It is often used as a thickening agent in sauces, soups, and gravies, and can also be used as a substitute for wheat flour in gluten-free baking, producing light and crispy results. Additionally, it is a key ingredient in traditional snacks and desserts like water chestnut cake or dumplings.
