An acquaintance of mine made the claim recently that in the US (which he has visited), there is no such thing as self-raising flour (or equivalent under another name).

Seems highly unlikely to me, but whilst I cannot find an explicit confirmation in assorted searches, those searches are indeed suggesting that it isn't available...

So - does it exist over there?

it exists.





if they cannot find it (seems unlikely), have them make it with AP Flour plus baking powder and a little salt. (one cup AP plus 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt = one cup self rising)

I've never heard of it before, but I'm not much of a cook or baker. It looks like Wal-Mart carries it as Self-Rising Flour, so it can't be incredibly uncommon.

Flour growing up without parents can experience a turbulent and difficult life. Very few show the gumption and stick-to-it-tiveness to actually raise themselves. Of course its hard to find.

Thank you for finally making the post that I had been looking for since I first saw this thread title this morning.

Do note, that there is a difference between possible-to-get and commonly-available or used. It is indeed seldom seen or used in the US. But you can get just about anything you want, if you look hard enough.

Interesting. Any idea why it is so uncommon? I figured that as Walmart had it, it must be everywhere.

Uh, no. The stuff is in every grocery store, on the shelf right next to the All Purpose flour.

My mom almost exclusively uses self-rising flour. It's very common here in the states, at least here in rural Ohio. Available in every grocery store (and Wal-Mart) and as mentioned above, found next to the all-purpose flour and other flours that might be available.
