Searching For Gluten-Free Dried Beans

Hi all,

I am having difficulty sourcing out a company that makes dried beans that does not cross-contaminate with packaging. Have you located any good dried bean/legume companies?

TIA,

Monica

Hi Monica,

I've had great luck with Rancho Gordo (www.ranchogordo.com). They only do mail order (or I think they also sell at some San Francisco area farmers markets. They ONLY do beans, and are a relatively small operation. They are a bit pricey, but REALLY good beans, and a lot of varieties you can't find elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

Ryan

I've ended up still having trouble with some beans, even triple washing with gluten-free soap, even, and massive rinsing. :(

So far, we've tried a little of the Rancho Gordo beans ourselves and they seem find for my daughter, so far.

I've had the same problem. It seems hard to wash the stuff off!

hmmmm. You could try soaking in vodka, since gluten is soluble in alcohol, but that might be more expensive than finding beans you can use.

Considering that Chopin is the only vodka which I can tolerate it would be expensive, but maybe extra yummy.

Thanks guys...

I'll see if I can order them up to Canada.

Or maybe I'll have to take a trip to California. :-)

We have been using Eden and washing them. I think we are be CC'ed still.

Take care,

Monica

Aw maaaaaan. I did not know that. I would even try it, except I haven't found one I can use yet (allergies AND gluten, sigh). :(

wouldn't be eating beans very often with that expensive of a cleaning method, though, LOL.

Check nutsonline.com their beans are gluten free certified as well as their nuts and dried fruits!

One of the reasons you may be getting sick from beans may not be the gluten. I just found out all beans are fumigated. That is a pesticide gas that it says "mostly" evaporates in 5 min after exposing the food. If residues remain, which I think they do, and they are oil soluble, it might not wash off very easily.

I have started washing all rice and beans 2 - 4 times now and only buying organic. I think they are also fumigating organic beans if they come from outside the country.

This could be my problem. I have had problems with fumigated nuts too. Do you have a source?

You could try Seed Saver's Exchange eating beans. I don't think they have grains on site, but you'd have to ask.
