Grains, seeds, cereal, nuts and pasta

We always choose organic grains, seeds, cereal and pasta to avoid pesticide residues. The reason is that peas, beans and other seed crops used to make gluten-free flours, breads, pasta, etc may have been sprayed with herbicide just a few days before harvest. The products we buy are also gluten free.
