Multiple Food Allergies & Salzburger Max for milling rice flour

My 4 years old son is suffering multiple food allergies (diary, eggs, sulphites and food additives maybe Antioxidants) and food intolerance (leaf vegetables, soya) , but he is ok with rice and I want to make him some rice pudding/dessert that is free of his allergens. 

He is ok with the rice we bought from Asian Supermarket but the shop bought rice flour caused him itchy skin. 

So, I thought Salzburger Max will do a good job to mill some rice flour and the grain mill itself is free of plastic . 

Does anyone has experience of using it? as I never bought a grain mill before, if you can give you your valuable opinions, that would be very helpful.  

Does anyone know this https://natural-grainmills.com website? Are they reliable? because the website is based in Austria and we live in England. I do worried the safety of the site.  

Thank you for your help.

I am sorry to hear about your son.  I am not familiar with the particular mill you asked about ,but have looked at the website.  It looks similar in concept to a number of well respected mills -  such as the Komo, The Nutrimill Harvest, and the Mockmill.  One horizontal stationary stone, one stone that is adjacent to it that rotates, a feed hopper that feeds the grains between the two stones, a mechanism to adjust the space between the two stones, and a discharge chute.  I would think it would do a fine job, that arrangement is fairly standard and works well.  I have a Komo and I mostly use it for grinding wheat,  I have used it to grind rice flour several times , and it worked fine. 

I am in the US, and am not familiar with that website, though Austria is where the Komo is made.

and explain your worries.  One thing to consider is the wood in the mill and if your son may be sensitive to it.  I also see that not all mills process rice kernels satisfactory.

From my experience with rice pudding, milling is not needed to make rice pudding. Tapioca might also be a choice if he doesn't react to it.  

StickyRice can also be pulsed in a blender, steamed, cooled, the mass grated into crumbs and then steamed again into  Cake.
