Bob's Red Mill 's Gluten Free Products
Over the years, Bob's Red Mill has strived to create gluten-free products that provide a safe and whole-grain alternative to traditional foods.
Bob's Red Mill's line of gluten-free products is manufactured in the company's dedicated gluten-free facility. Lab- testing is performed during the production of each batch using the R5 Elisa Test to ensure gluten-free status.
People suffering from celiac disease, wheat allergies and wheat intolerances depend on gluten-free foods to maintain their quality of life. Gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley and their derivatives, causes celiac disease sufferers to experience changes in their small intestine and often a loss of their ability to absorb crucial nutrients. As more Americans are diagnosed with celiac disease – recent studies have suggested that about one in 150 are afflicted – there is a greater need for gluten-free product variety.
Bob's Red Mill stone grinds gluten free flours in a dedicated facility free from wheat and other gluten containing grains and derivatives. High quality-control standards are set in place in the gluten free facility and staff members are educated in good manufacturing practices. Ingredients are segregated and each line is thoroughly cleaned between production runs. The gluten free symbol informs the consumer that these products are not only produced in a dedicated facility, they are also batch tested for gluten before milling and after packaging. In an effort to better serve allergen sensitive consumers, the gluten free facility is also dairy and casein free.
