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.
