Starches help to bind gluten free flours, as well as add texture which helps when baking.

Can we make flour in the wet container instead of using the grain container.. ?
This is not suggested, making flours in the containers can cause containers to become marred or scratched, also the blade design in your dry grains container is the correct design for making flour.

What beans or lentils are good for making gluten-free flour?
Any dried bean or lentils would be good to grind into flour. I would recommend finding recipes that are already created using a chickpea flour or green lentil flour because all flours react differently when cooked.

How do you make tapioca flour?
Use tapioca pearls, balls, I found them in an organic store, and in an international market. Good luck. Just put them in your dry canister, turn on and quickly turn dial to high, and in about a minute you have flour. Sift the flour for stragglers, hard pieces.
