What is the difference between the Organic Certification and Wheat Montana's Chemical Free Status?
Wheat Montanas products are not certified organic, however grains grown on our farm are chemical/pesticide free proven via an independent lab test for 125 different Herbicides, Organochlorine, and Organophosphorus Pesticides, as well as Semi-volatile organics. Wheat Montana Farms believes in the value of organic farming but we take our process one step further and subject our products to a final chemical analysis to ensure that you are getting exactly what you want, clean, fresh, wholesome, chemical free, grains! In order for us to produce certified organic wheat berries, Wheat Montana Farms must use natural fertilizer or manure (cow, sheep, chicken, etc). Since our products go directly from the field to the table with no irradiation or pasteurization, we are concerned about the possibility of cross contamination from virulent bacteria. We do not, at this current time, use animal manure in order to eliminate any possibility of cross contamination for our customers. WE DO NOT USE G.M.O. (GENETICALLY MODIFIED) VARIETIES OF ANY KIND.
What is the shelf life on your products?
Grains: If you store the grains in a plastic pail with an oxygen absorber in a temperature stable environment, the wheat should last six to eight years, perhaps longer. Flour: any other products that have been processed should be used within a year.
What is the protein and moisture content of the wheat you grow or carry?
The moisture content of our Prairie Gold and Bronze Chief Wheat is no higher than 10%, perfect for baking and storing. The protein of our Prairie Gold and Bronze Chief Wheat measures between 14.5 and 15.5%, depending on the growing season.
