White rice flour
    #4349705 - 06/29/05 08:29 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I'm a newbie growing shrooms, I've been reading this forum since two months.
This morning i was so happy looking at my first pin
(pf-tek but using white rice flour instead of brown)...but while i was searching for more information I saw a topic saying that my shrooms would be useless because of the white flour.
Is that true, I'm taking care of those babies ( 6x 1 pint jars )
since 6 weeks now

I think it's been tried before, and it just doesn't have the nutritional content to hang like brown rice flour. 1 cup of white rice flour has 114mg Tryptophan, where as 1 cup of BRF comes in at 145 mg Tryptophan. Supposedly Tryptophan plays a big role in nutrition for mushrooms, so that right there should tell you something.

no don't believe they would be useless. there just isn't as many nutrients in the white rice as other substrates. the myc grew and the shrooms are coming, so they are going to have something to them. sure not as much but still will be something.
good luck
peace

Thank you ! I believe that I just have to wait for shrooms to grow and try them. I notice that my first pin have no brown head, may be that's why ?

I feel like if I just lost 42 days.
I hope Backupwards2's right but I just found this
What is the difference between brown and white rice?
If the link is no good I'm sorry don't forget I'm a newbie !

I have a friend who used both and we noticed no difference in potency but the flushes were a little weaker with white, this is just what we observed this might not be the case for everyone. Just stay away from plain old wheat flour, he has tried this and produced nearly completely inactive mushrooms.
