Hodgson Mill Buckwheat Flour
0

9 posts in this topic

Just called Hodgson Mills and they were very nice, but not especially confident that their buckwheat flour would not have any wheat residue. They go through a serious cleaning process, but all their flours are ground on the same stones. That seems pretty risky to me. Anybody using it successfully? I unfortunately called them AFTER I mixed up a nice bread recipe with their flour and I sure hate to throw it all out.

If Hodgson is not OK, what company does have safe buckwheat flour in your experience? Thanks!

Hodgon's Mill are like Arrowhead Mills they grind the entire buckwheat seed, hulls included, and produce a dark buckwheat flour. Birkett Mills, and New Hope Mills produce light buckwheat flour where the non-digestable hull is removed from the flour.

There are two Hodgon's Mills, the original one built in the 1860's which is not capable of producing grain products, and that everyone sees in photographs. Then there is a modern factory building owned by someone else in a nearby town which uses the old mills name, and image to sell their modern made flour using electricity.

I have to second this, another company called Pocono is also in the same area and makes a great buckwheat 'cream of wheat'. I live a few miles from these folks and the products are well worth looking for.

You should call the company immediately!! I order from them regularly and if there's ever any problem with your order, they will fix it right away. They accidently sent me a case of chocolate cake mix instead of the brownies and when I called, they told me to keep the case and they's sent the correct case that day--I recieved it 2 days later. They've always been great with us...

This is stuff that I bought from a health-food store in Virginia Beach. So who knows how long it has been stored on a shelf or where it has been.

I would check out the website of the Birkett Mills. We love their Cream of Buckwheat. Buckwheat is the only thing that they have milled for over a hundred years. It is just not just "Gluten-Free" it is also "Organic." Their Cream of Buckwheat is a million times better than Bob's Red Mill similar product.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
