What makes organic flour actually “organic” has to do with how it is produced. It is organic flour because it must be certified to meet the standards of organic produce by meeting the stipulations of third party organizations that have a certain set of standards. Thus, organic flour, like all processed organic foods, must be free of artificial food additives as well as being grown without synthetic pesticides.
Farm2Kitchen Organic flours are milled from pesticide-free grain and grown in the soil only fertilized by natural substances. The flours are not artificially processed or chemically ripened. It’s also been said that organic grain develops more robustly, taking in more nutrients from the soil and thereby making the flour healthier and more nutritious for consumers.
