Does anyone know where to find any of these?

Sorghum Flour, Xanthan Gum, Brown Rice Flour, Millet Flour

I think I need to bite the bullet and import these, or maybe I need to make a trip home...

I think I saw brown rice flour at an organic store once, or else Dragonbabe got it online. I'll try to check for you later. Meanwhile, what I recommend is first identifying the Chinese names, and then asking for them at organic shops like the Cottonfield chain.

BTW I'm moving this to the Food forum for you.

May I ask what you're making with these?

Thanks, I forgot about Cottonfields.

I'm making a gluten-free pizza. I often do substitutions like agar for xanthan gum, and white rice for brown rice, and soy for millet, but it isn't quite the same. It's close, though.

Millet (and organic millet) are easy to find here; dunno about the flour offhand but if you got a small grain mill you could make some of these flours easily. I don't know how hard it is on a coffee grinder to put other grains through it.

I listed some of the flours they have here: http://forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.ph ... 3#p1306883 I doubt they have the subject flours, but it's possible. Our brown rice flour is from a young couple in Yunlin doing organic farming. You can order from them online here: http://www.shop2000.com.tw/field-child/product/p3283090
