Hi olesoulle,

Interesting question.  There's no way for me to know how safe that would be as far as cross contamination goes.  It seems like you could sort through the grains looking for and removing any wheat, rye or barley that had snuck in.  And then  wash the grain and let it dry.  I think that's what Quaker does with their gluten-free rice products.  But they have machines that do it on a large scale quickly.  Maybe you could look up their procedures and see how it works for them?

Welcome to the forum! :)

As mentioned by GFinDC Could work but you will have to go through it, I almost guarantee there will be other grains in there other then sorghum. Issue is here is about how sensitive you are also. A lot of people still get sick from products made gluten-free by mechanical separation. They are still touching and causing some form of contamination. The feed version is probably also going to have a lot other "Waste" in it from the harvesting as I imagine they keep the price down by using minimal processing from field to bag, so the store bought might be better in the end with less work and safer.

I personally used Authentic Foods for sorghum flour when using it with a bit of millet and guar gum to make banana bread for my family.  I think it was like $11.50 for 3lb bag http://www.glutenfree-supermarket.com/p-33-superfine-sorghum-flour.aspx

GERBS also has bulk sales of whole grains available that are gluten free the sorghum is as low as $3.39/lb for 50lb bulk purchases. https://www.mygerbs.com/product-category/grains/

Can sorghum, (Milo) from the feed store be used to grind flour for baking. Feed store sorghum is approx. $8.00 for 50lbs as opposed to $10.00 for 2lbs from some on-line sources.

The sorghum used for gluten-free baking is specifically grown and harvested to be gluten-free.  These farmers do not alternate with wheat or use the same harvesting and storage equipment as other grains.  That adds to the cost but make sure it safe for Celiacs.
