Rice flour is a generic term for rice flour made of both non-glutinous rice and glutinous rice. The rice flour type is shown in Figure 1. Rice is the only self-sufficient grain in Japan, but the annual consumption of rice-per-capita has been decreasing year by year due to the diversification of consumer needs.
