gluten-free Grain That's Not Processed With Nuts?

Though I haven't asked, Barry Farm might have what you're looking for. While their repackaging facility might be shared, I haven't had CC issues. What I don't know is if the gluten-free mills which produce the flours also process nuts. I'd like to think not. I'd suggest contacting them and see what they say.

I am wondering if anyone here has a source for gluten-free flours or grains that are not processed in a facility with nuts/peanuts?

Thanks

I use Kinnikinnick flours as their facility is nut and peanut free. I have Celiacs, and my daughter has a nut/peanut allergy so this flour works for us. I live in Canada and Kinnikinnick is a Canadian company - I am not sure how available it is in the US. Hope this helps.

Thanks, I have emailed them and will let you know what I find out! I like that they are (relatively) local and organic. My dream come true so I am sure it is not going to work :(

They get it from other suppliers so they don't know if they are produced with nuts/peanuts :( I knew it was too good to be true!

I'd guess that the certified gluten-free flours are more likely processed alone. And even if not, such a mill would probably be more careful about CC from anything else they may process. Since nuts don't go through the same milling machine (at least I wouldn't think so), wouldn't the chances of CC be considerably lower than the kinds of processed foods which share lines?

It is possible but I am not willing to chance it with a 3 year old who can't really pinpoint an anaphylactic reaction. Maybe as he gets older but not now.

Ah, I see. I agree, given a serious reaction like that. I haven't checked, but I'd like to think there'd be a home test for nuts like there is for gluten.

I do know that Bouchard Family Farm grows and mills their own buckwheat flour, and that's the only thing they process. I like the way pancakes turn out with this flour, but I haven't tried using it alone in a bread recipe. It does work nicely when combined with other types I regularly use though. I think it may work alone in muffins and brownies however.

Coconut is usually well tolerated by persons with nut allergies, and there are companies which only process coconuts. So perhaps you'd find some uses for coconut flour too.

Another company to check out is Amazing Grains. I don't see any statements about nuts, but they don't sell nut flours. There is a contact page, so it should be easy to ask them.

Twin Valley Mills appears to only sell sorghum grain and flour.

The Teff Company sells only teff.

Ooops...forgot the link for the buckwheat flour:

I actually get this one at a regular food store, so they apparently do get distributed.

My daughter has Celiac & anaphylaxis to peanut/tree nut. We use Authentic Foods Classic Blend Flour.
