What is "ORGANIC FLOURS"
ORGANIC FLOURS are flours that are grown in fields that are fertilized by naturally occurring substances-composted materials, aged animal manure, and green manure’s. The soil as a result becomes more loose and this allows the roots to grow deeper, and the plant structure is strong. When the grain is harvested and cleaned it is stored without the use of fumigants or synthetic agents. The result is a full bodied wholesome taste, like a tomato or a carrot grown in your own garden.Commercial fields are on the other hand treated with pesticides, to fight bugs, herbicides to combat weeds, fungicides to combat fungi and other synthetic fertilizers. The young crop is sprayed repeatedly during the growing season and sprayed again after it is harvested and stored. The flour is rather flat tasting and characterless in flavour.
