Is it safe to eat raw flour? How do I toast it?
Raw flour can pose a health risk if consumed because it may contain bacteria, such as salmonella, which can cause food poisoning. There have been several recalls in recent years so it can be a cause for concern. To eliminate this risk, you can simply toast your flour before using it in recipes that call for raw flour where there is no further cooking, like edible cookie dough
To toast flour in the oven, simply spread the flour out on a baking sheet and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes. This will kill off any harmful bacteria and make the flour safe to consume. Keep an eye on the flour while it’s in the oven and stir it occasionally to ensure it toasts evenly. Once it’s lightly golden and fragrant, it’s ready to use in your recipe.
To toast flour in a skillet, add the flour in a single layer to a large heavy skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Stir or toss the flour frequently to ensure it toasts evenly. Once it’s lightly golden and fragrant, it’s ready to use in your recipe. This method is quick and easy, and it allows you to keep a close eye on the flour to ensure it doesn’t burn. Plus, it eliminates the need to turn on the oven, which can be useful if you’re trying to avoid heating up your kitchen. Simply toast the flour in the skillet, then let it cool before using it in your recipe.
