Understanding The Importance of Heirloom Flour
June 28, 2022
When people from across the country come to Seed to Table, they experience the difference of food made with Heirloom Flour. Unlike the chemical rich products found of most grocery shelves, Heirloom Flour is grown from seeds that have been passed down from generation to generation. There’s no genetic modification that is often found in modern wheat, rice, and corn.
A lot of shoppers are unaware that the food they typically consume is heavily processed. In the 1950’s and 60’s, the manufacturers started to change wheat to make whiter bread and improve the texture of their food products. Since then, it’s uncommon for products to accurately carry the label of Non-GMO. Alfie Oakes is a firm believer that gluten intolerance was spawned by the introduction of processed GMO products. Products made with Heirloom flour have a very low gluten content and can be tolerated by those with a gluten allergy. All properties of Oakes Farms make food products with no preservatives and non-GMO products. Experience the difference of Heirloom Flour at Seed to Table!
