Imported from Italy, our gluten-free chestnut flour is an earthy, uniquely textured flour that would be a fabulous addition to your pantry. Made from dry roasted chestnuts, this versatile flour can be incorporated into a range of recipes. Blending chestnut flour into pie crust yields a sweet, slightly nutty flavor while using chestnut flour in cakes, cookies and sweet breads adds density and heartiness.
Chestnut Flour in Italian Cuisine
Chestnut flour is prevalent in certain regions of Italy. Some Italians use chestnut flour to make crepes, which are called necci, and are served plain or with ricotta and honey. Castagnaccio is a subtly sweet chestnut cake from Tuscany made of only chestnut flour along with pine nuts, raisins and rosemary.

Only place I buy this from . I am using it exclusively for Italian cake.Doreen, Silver City, NM
LOVE the chestnut flour! Thank you. The box created a stir at the UPS store, so I told them about your pecan pie special. They thought that was a great idea and plan to order some goodies to get that pie!!!Jean, Centennial, CO
This flour is awesome...There is a learning curve on how to use it when avoiding gluten but I've been experimenting by making muffins, adjusting eggs, adding almond flour but avoiding gluten flour....Chestnut flour adds a natural sweetness to baked goods that other flours don't...The flour smelled and tasted very fresh!Madeline, Katonah, NY
