Garfava Flour

Garfava Flour

The Authentic Foods Garfava Flour is the original recipe for the flour made from garbanzo beans and fava beans. The beans are stone milled into flour and naturally processed with our proprietary machinery. This flour is a great replacement for wheat flour. It will make your baked goods healthier and taste better. Beans, being high in protein and fiber, decrease sugar flow into the blood stream, which is beneficial to most diabetics.

You’ll find dozens of delicious recipes using Garfava Flour in the following books: The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy and The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Breads by Bette Hagman and Special Diet Solutions and Diet Celebrations by Carol Fenster.

Authentic Foods Garfava Flour Helpful Hints:

  • 1 cup Garfava Flour is equivalent to approximately one cup of wheat flour


  • When using Garfava Flour or other gluten free flours, it is necessary to add small amounts of the Authentic Foods Xanthan Gum.  This specialty gum improves the structure and texture of baked goods that contain no gluten.

  • For flavoring and sweetening, it is recommended that you use Authentic Foods Vanilla Powder and Authentic Foods Maple Sugar

  • Garfava Flour can also be used to thicken soups, stews and gravies and for flouring meat
