Organic or GMO-free flours


Are there any high-quality flours that are organic or GMO-free? I've seen that King Arthur has organic bread and AP flour, but I haven't seen others brands.

Hi Peter,

I talked to my friends at Shawnee Mills flour and they had this to say.

"There is no GMO wheat grown in the US, but because the US grains storage and transportation system uses the same elevator storage and shipping containers (trucks and rail) for a variety of grains, we are reluctant to claim GMO free on wheat. The majority of corn and soybeans grown in the US are GMO varieties and there is just too much chance of comingling them with wheat in the US grain system.

Organic certification requires separate storage and processing facilities and we just have not seen the demand to justify the investment currently required to approach organic products."
