Halacha - Gluten-free bread
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Usually if there is a mezonos component, it is automatically assumed to be the primary ingredient, even if it is the minority. However rice is an exception to this rule since it is not one of the 5 grains. Therefore if the flour is more than 50% rice it would be mezonos and borei nefashos and if the potato and tapioca together are more than 50% it would be shehakol. In this case the appearance is irrelevant.
