When making rice flour tortillas do you use brown or white rice flour?

I've seen recipes online using either type of flour but  wasn't sure which one would make better tortillas.

TIA

How about trying a combo of the two?  I usually like the brown rice flour because it's got a bit more fiber to it, but I think the white rice flour can be easier to work with.

If you are looking for gluten free tortillas, here is a recipe for making them out of mung beans. https://spiceandmore.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/an-exciting-discovery/

 

They fold, are yummy, and super healthy. Both my kids love them.


Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Thank you!  I have mung beans and will try this.  I was looking for GF tortillas and the fact that these are not high in carbs is another plus.  They look pretty easy too.  I have not found a store bought GF/corn free tortilla that I like.  I ended up eating flour tortillas tonight.  I have been vegetarian for years but am having a difficult time eliminating gluten, dairy, corn, peanuts, etc.
