Organic Food Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I try to eat organic as much as possible, but most of my gluten-free food is not organic. Can anyone recommend good gluten-free organic food? I'm particularly interested in flours and bread/cake/dessert mixes, but would love to know about other things as well.

Thanks,

Erin

I find that is a real problem as well. I just looked through my cupboards and could find barely anything that was labeled both gluten-free and organic, except for Food Merchants Brand precooked polenta (in the plastic tube sleeve). I have just compromised and figured as long as I could find gluten-free, dairy free and potato free foods (that last one makes it pretty difficult), I would have to sacrifice organic. Of course there are a lot of organic foods available that are naturally gluten free. But I am not having much luck with the flours or baked goods either.

Let's hope some folks put up some useful posts!

Glad to know I'm not the only one. Maybe if manufacturers and farmers realize there is more of a demand, they'll start making more gluten-free organic foods.

Bob's Red Mill does have some organic gluten-free flours, but they're not the flours I use regularly. Here's the link, though:

For all sorts of flours, my first stop is always here:

Since I make all my food from scratch, I can't help you with mixes. I do wish I could get organic veggies at a decent price though.

Thanks for the link, I hadn't heard of that site before. It looks like a lot of those flours are either organic or labeled gluten free. Have you tried, for example, the organic rice flour (which doesn't *say* it's gluten free)? If so, did you react to it?

Thanks,

Erin

I have never had a reaction (that I know of) to any of the flours from Barry Farm. I don't recall if I've tried their rice flours, as I found some time ago that rice flour, especially the brown, is gritty compared to all others I've tried. I'd recommend millet or sorghum in place of rice flour, even if it is labeled organic and gluten-free.

One pleasant surprise I found is that their bean flours don't smell or taste bad. Recently I found out that the reason Bob's Red Mill bean flours smell is that they are stone ground, which produces enough heat to break down the oils in the beans.
