ingredient information
Barley Flour Organic
Barley Flour is produced from barley after malting and removal of sugar and starch by hot water extraction. The extracted barley is dried by indirect steam, milled and sifted to obtain a flour which 100% passes a US 40 mesh screen and 90% is retained by a US 120 mesh screen. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified,(see Barley Flour)
