Bob’s Red Mill ~ Why I Am A Customer

Bobs_Red_Mill_Natural_Foods_Logo

Over the past month I have been sampling Bob’s Red Mill Flours. I have to say I was not crazy about the price, but once I learned more about this company and what they stand for, I knew that customers are getting their money’s worth. The ingredients and care that go into each bag is why I will continue to purchase the Bob’s Red Mill brand over others.

Did you know? “Bob’s Red Mill America’s Best Baking Flour™ is unbleached, unbromated white flour milled from certified organic, U.S.—grown wheat. It is not enriched with any additives. Bob’s Red Mill Ivory Wheat™ Flour is 100% stone ground from organic whole grain hard white wheat berries. Hard white whole wheat is a new variety of identity-preserved wheat that is quickly growing in popularity. America’s Best Baking Flour™ Organic Whole Wheat Flour is 100% stone ground from certified organic, U.S.—grown hard red. Nothing is lost in the process of grinding the flour—one pound of wholesome whole wheat berries go into the mill, and one pound of nutritious whole wheat flour comes out. The bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat kernel are all included. Our Organic Whole Wheat Flour is rich in dietary fiber and provides 7 grams of protein per serving. It is a good source of essential minerals including phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron.” This is just a peak into the wholesome goodness that Bob’s Red Mill has to offer!

If you’re reading this, then you must be skeptical about essential oils just like I once was. Well, I’m glad you’re here because we have some things to straighten out. First, let me start by admitting this: I didn’t always sing the praises of essential oils. In fact, for a few years I was very skeptical for good reason. That’s because I was using essential oils without a whole lot of results happening. So what changed? I educated myself. Not saying you’re uneducated, but perhaps there are some things you need clarification on.
