What types of flour does Wildgrain use?Updated 3 months ago

All of the flour we use to make Wildgrain products is unbleached, unbromated, and non-GMO. We never use flours that have been treated with bleaching agents like benzoyl peroxide or chlorine gas to speed up their aging process.

Beyond that, we use two categories of flour: organic and enriched. While we use organic flour as much as possible, not all of our flour is organic. Because of specific recipes and supply chain issues, we're sometimes unable to rely on organic flour sources. Here's our Nutrition Page, where you can see the ingredient lists by product. When an ingredient is organic, it will be labeled as such in the ingredient list. Some of our organic flour is also stone-ground.

When we do not use organic flours, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that non-organic flours must be enriched with the following nutrients: 2.9 milligrams of thiamin, 1.8 milligrams of riboflavin, 24 milligrams of niacin, 0.7 milligrams of folic acid, and 20 milligrams of iron. This is a public health initiative in 44 countries worldwide as a solution to common nutrient deficiencies in the general population. You can read more about this in Sec. 137.165 on the FDA website.
