Organic & Non-GMO
One of the most common questions we get asked is "Are your products organic?" While our whole-grain barley flour and cereal are not certified organic, both are high-quality, non-GMO alternatives to organic that our customers can feel good about supporting.
All of our products are non-GMO, meaning they have not been genetically modified. Our commitment to sustainability means we go to great lengths to bring you hearty, environmentally friendly, Alaska-grown food.
Alaska Flour Company products are all natural, free of any additives or preservatives. We also believe in sustainable farming, meaning we use innovative farming techniques such as no-till drilling and crop rotation to preserve the earth.
Fortunately, the conditions in Alaska help us out with making our products as healthy and eco- friendly as possible. Our short growing season, coupled with our geographic isolation and extreme weather for most of the year has spared us most of the pests that require special treatments in other parts of the world. We perform a selective application one time shortly after planting to take care of the weeds. The product we use has a very short half-life and is only effective on a specific class of weeds. If we don't supress the weeds, it results in a bitter taste from the weed seeds mixing with the grain. We do not use fungicides or insecticides.
In other words, we at the Alaska Flour Company take great care in the way that we plant, grow, and prepare our barley so you can breathe easy, knowing our products are good for you and great for the environment.
