@BobsRedMill Sourced Non GMO Pledge

Our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Health

Throughout our nearly 40 years of offering whole grain foods for every meal of the day, Bob’s Red Mill’s top priority has remained consistent: Maintaining a commitment to source the highest quality ingredients available. Now, we’re taking that commitment one step further with our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge.

@BobsRedMill Sourced Non GMO Pledge

Our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge means that the ingredients we source for our wholesome products have been declared by their suppliers to be made without the use of modern biotechnology. The truth is, we’ve always sourced using this practice, but now we’re making our commitment visible on Bob’s Red Mill packages so that you can purchase with confidence.

So, when you see our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge on one of our packages, you can be sure that we’ve worked with our farmers and suppliers to source ingredients that were not genetically engineered. That work includes cultivating trusted relationships over many years and requiring documentation that attests to the fact that the ingredients have not been genetically modified through the use of modern biotechnology. For assurance, we conduct audits of our suppliers annually. We also source organic ingredients whenever feasible, and by definition, foods that are Certified USDA Organic are made only with ingredients that have not been bioengineered.

From our commitment to meeting the highest food safety standards in the country, to our dedicated gluten free production, to our strict organic protocols, and now, to our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge, we are continuously striving to build and maintain your trust.

What is it? Wednesday: Probiotics // @BobsRedMill

What is it? Wednesday: Probiotics

by Cassidy Stockton in Health, What is it? Wednesday

A few years back, we had the privileged of meeting and building a relationship with Dr Robert Martindale, MD of the Oregon Health and Science University. He spoke at length of the importance of pre- and probiotics and the role that whole grains play in our health. The Bob’s Red Mill team left so inspired that we immediately set out to create our line of Nutritional Boosters- essentially protein powders that would contain all of the health benefits of pre- and probiotics. Our mission was to create something with clean, simple ingredients that would also taste really good. That dream became a reality earlier this year when we introduced four Nutritional Boosters that contain probiotics.

What are probiotics? Simply put, probiotics are living organisms that help replenish the good bacteria that live in our intestinal tracts. These good bacteria aid in digestion, overall gut health and support our immune system. They’re a line of defense against illness. If you’ve ever been sick and had to take antibiotics, you’ve likely wiped out your beneficial bacteria and probiotics would be a good way to replenish them.

What is it? Wednesday: Probiotics // @BobsRedMill

Why are probiotics important? Probiotics in and of themselves are not super important, what is important is healthy good bacteria in your gut. Probiotics are a way to ensure that you have good, healthy bacteria keeping you in tip-top shape. Think of probiotics as a replenishment system.

When should you use probiotics? Most people will benefit from eating foods that contain probiotics. People with compromised immune systems and other systemic issues should consult with a doctor before adding them to their diet. Probiotics can be used regularly to maintain gut health, but they are essential for recovery from antibiotic use and illnesses where bad bacteria has been introduced (such as food poisoning).

What foods contain probiotics? Probiotics are found in many packaged foods (everything from chocolate to protein bars to ice cream), but are naturally occurring in yogurt, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, miso, kimchi, and tempeh, to name a few. Many naturally fermented foods have them, but you’ll want to look for foods that advertise live cultures- specifically Lactobacillus, Bacilus coagulans, or Bifidobacterium. You can also buy probiotic supplements. They’re typically in the refrigerated section of natural food stores.What is it? Wednesday: Probiotics // @BobsRedMill

How do you know if a food has probiotics? It should absolutely be listed in the ingredient list. If it’s not or it does not list the type of bacteria, move on. Not all of these common sources (like yogurt) contain live cultures and it is the live piece that is key here. Dead bacteria, in this instance, is useless. Be sure to look for a ‘live culture’ claim.

What are prebiotics? A lesser-known piece of the good gut health puzzle are prebiotics. They are not as commonly discussed, but they are equally important. Prebiotics are the foods we ingest that feed our healthy bacteria. Anything that has a decent amount of dietary fiber can function as a prebiotic, but not all prebiotics are created equal. Whole grains and fiber-rich foods are above and beyond the best choice for gut health. It’s so simple to create the perfect formula of pre- and probiotics. You’re enjoying yogurt? Add a scoop of muesli or granola to your meal. Enjoying some tempeh? Pair it with some brown rice or whole grain bread. See? Simple. The nice thing is, high fiber foods are overwhelmingly beneficial to your digestive health anyway, so pairing them with probiotics is a win-win. Read more about this pre- and probiotic relationship here.

What is it? Wednesday: Probiotics // @BobsRedMill

Are probiotics gluten free? Yep. There is no gluten in a probiotic. HOWEVER, you’ll want to be sure that the food you’re choosing is gluten free. If you’re taking a probiotic supplement, make sure it’s gluten free, as well.

Are probiotics vegan? Yes, probiotics are considered to be vegan. Again, you’ll want to be sure that the food you’re eating is vegan. For instance, a standard probiotic-rich yogurt is not vegan. Look for vegan yogurts that contain probiotics, or stick to tempeh, kimchi and other plant-based sources. Our nutritional boosters are a great option for a vegan probiotic source.

Sunflower Crackers-A healthy grain-free snack that pairs well with cheeses, dips or just on its own!  // @BobsRedMill // grain free, paleo friendly, vegan, gluten free

Sunflower Crackers

by Cassidy Stockton in Gluten Free, Recipes

I will admit that I really enjoy a good cracker. I’ve shared several here before—Nooch Crackers, Cornmeal and Cheddar Crackers, Pea, Parmesan and Rosemary Crackers—all wonderful and delicious options. Today, though, I have this recipe for Sunflower Crackers that I’ve been anxious to share, but have been waiting for the right time. These crackers are very easy to make, super tasty (is it bad to admit I ate half the batch in one go??) AND they’re gluten free, vegan and paleo-friendly.

Often, we think of gluten free foods as flavorless and compare them to recyclable materials, like paper and cardboard. Don’t let me fool you, there are some truly bad gluten free foods out there. Recipes where no matter how much sugar/salt/fat you throw at them, they taste like sawdust. The landscape is really changing, though. With a greater focus on fresh, local foods and a whole heap of recipe developers seeing ‘gluten free’ as a creative challenge (rather than hindrance), recipes are getting better.

Sunflower Crackers-A healthy grain-free snack that pairs well with cheeses, dips or just on its own!  // @BobsRedMill // grain free, paleo friendly, vegan, gluten free

There are more high quality ingredients available and folks are exploring things they previously hadn’t. Ingredients like oat flour and quinoa flour are showing up more and more often. Chickpea (aka Garbanzo Bean) Flour is increasingly popular for making pizza and crackers. Arrowroot and Tapioca Starch are showing up places they previously had not. Add to this, the focus on grain-free eating that the Paleo Diet has brought to the forefront and you have a huge variety of delicious, reliable recipes for nearly everything under the sun.

Now more than ever, gluten free recipes are becoming so good that people truly cannot tell the difference. This cracker that is somehow gluten free, paleo-friendly and vegan, is a perfect example. Here is a cracker you can serve at a party without mentioning which diet it’s accommodating and folks will gobble them up (trust me, I watched this happen at the office).

Sunflower Crackers-A healthy grain-free snack that pairs well with cheeses, dips or just on its own!  // @BobsRedMill // grain free, paleo friendly, vegan, gluten free

Our test kitchen has combined sunflower seed meal (made by pulsing sunflowers in a food processor) and tapioca flour to create these crisp, flavorful crackers that everyone will enjoy. Here, we’ve topped them with mashed avocado and sliced kumquats. Sure, it sounds weird, but it’s surprisingly delicious. They’d be wonderful with a charcuterie plate, topped with a nice cheese, dolloped with a fruit spread, or just devoured plain. If you’ve decided to accept that crackers just cannot be a part of your gluten free diet, think again.

Bob’s Red Mill Oats and Glyphosate

by Cassidy Stockton in Health

Dear Customers,

At the heart of Bob’s Red Mill is our mission to make the world a better place with healthy, whole grain foods. That commitment begins with our careful selection of suppliers and farming partners who are dedicated to providing ingredients that are handled with utmost care to ensure unwavering safety and quality for all. Our partners operate under strict oversight by the USDA and use Good Agricultural Practices.

Recently, customers have contacted us with concerns about our delicious, whole grain oats and the use of glyphosate in the cultivation of oats. Glyphosate is a farming aid used for weed control and crop desiccation, which is approved by the USDA for use in non-organically grown agriculture. We are proud to state that Bob’s Red Mill partners with an oat supplier who is actively committed to eliminating the presence of glyphosate. While this objective will take time to achieve, together, we will reach that goal. In the meantime, customers who wish to abstain from crops on which glyphosate has been applied may choose from our extensive line of certified organic oat products, for which the use of glyphosate is strictly prohibited by the USDA’s National Organic Program. We encourage consumers to join us in eliminating the use of glyphosate by contacting the USDA and voicing their concerns.

Thank you,

Bob’s Red Mill Management Team

"May the Fourth be With You" Wookiee Cookies: chocolaty, chewy, a little rough around the edges, just like our favorite Wookiee. // @bobsredmill.com

Wookiee Cookies

by Sarah House in Recipes

As May 4th began to approach this year, we realized that it was a holiday we hadn’t yet thrown much weight behind and, as you might guess, we’re big Star Wars fans around here.  How could we celebrate May the Fourth Be with You and include a Bob’s Red Mill twist?  And could we develop a recipe that would allow for a cute and catchy rhyme in the title?  Thus, Wookiee Cookies were born.

"May the Fourth be With You" Wookiee Cookies: chocolaty, chewy, a little rough around the edges, just like our favorite Wookiee. // @bobsredmill.com

When we decided to use Chewbacca as inspiration for a cookie, I immediately began to think of all things Chewy:  hairy, hard to understand if you didn’t speak Shyriiwook, probably not the most well-groomed and likely with some detritus caught up in that coat (hey, I NEVER saw a hair brush or comb on the Millennium Falcon; did you?).  Okay!  So earthy, spicy, and a bit rough around the edges it is.

"May the Fourth be With You" Wookiee Cookies: chocolaty, chewy, a little rough around the edges, just like our favorite Wookiee. // @bobsredmill.com

I decided to roll with the popular spice trio of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and I included the double-chocolate of cocoa powder and chocolate chunks because why not?  Please note that the recipe calls for chocolate chunks, not chips.  Being a 7 foot tall, fully coated being among us (relatively) short and hairless humans really stands out like a chocolate chunk.  An errant mouthful of Wookiee fur, I imagine, would be not unlike a mouthful of shredded coconut.  And since I imagine Chewbacca, in particular, as being a bit brusque, I opted for a flour blend that uses Graham Flour.  Graham Flour is a coarsely-ground whole grain wheat flour that imparts a hint of texture to breads, cakes, and cookies.

Add them all up, and graham flour, shredded coconut, chocolate chunks, and spices equal my ideal wookiee:  a bit rough, a bit surprising, and someone I want to hang around all the time.

Savor Your Oats: 10 Savory Oatmeal Ideas

by Cassidy Stockton in Recipes

The first time I heard the words “savory” and “oatmeal” together, I cringed (as you may have done when reading this). It sounded awful. Who in their right mind would combine oatmeal, a creamy canvas for brown sugar and butter, with cheese or fried eggs or *gasp* bacon? Turns out, a lot of people and for good reason. After all, if you remove your preconceived notions for what oatmeal represents and look at it as just another grain, it’s an incredibly versatile, nutritious whole grain. Besides, not everyone likes a sweet breakfast.

Oats are, as we know, extremely good for you. They’re high in fiber, deliver a nice protein package, are easy to digest and are pretty allergen-friendly (assuming you’re not allergic to oats, that is). If you can think beyond brown sugar, oats are a perfect grain to use in a risotto (oats-otto?), replace corn grits and use in place of barley in soups. They’re light on flavor and, if you buy the right variety, are extremely creamy in slow cooking applications. You probably don’t want to use rolled oats to try a risotto, but steel cut oats are a delightful alternative to white rice.

We’ve gathered up some of our favorite savory oat recipes for you to try. If you still can’t hack the idea of savory oatmeal, try one of these for lunch or dinner as a jumping off point. If you just want to start somewhere simple, try adding some cheddar cheese to your oats and topping with a fried egg. It’s divine!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread: a recipe for simple, delicious loaf of homemade bread. // @BobsRedMill

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

by Cassidy Stockton in Recipes

Some of the best things in life are the simple things. Take, for instance, this whole wheat bread. It’s a pretty simple recipe, but one that yields a beautiful loaf of bread perfect for toast, sandwiches and just enjoying with butter and jam. We chose to use a combination of half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour for a bread that is wonderfully chewy, but not overly dense. Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread and we hope you enjoy this loaf as much as we do. Happy Baking!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread: a recipe for simple, delicious loaf of homemade bread. // @BobsRedMill

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour water into a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle yeast over top. Let sit until yeast dissolves, about five minutes. Stir in milk, honey and oil. Add all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour and stir by hand or with a dough hook until a dough forms, about 1 minute on low.

Add the salt and knead dough until it is smooth and springy, about 10 minutes on medium speed.

Form dough into a ball and place in a large bowl lightly coated with oil. Turn dough to coat with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Transfer dough to floured surface. Divide dough in half and form into two balls. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. Gently press and shape each ball into a 9 x 9-inch square. Fold into thirds, like folding a letter. Pinch the seam closed and place loaf seam-side down in prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 40 – 60 minutes.

Make three angled slashes on top of each loaf with a knife and place in oven. Immediately reduce heat to 375°F and bake until loaves are golden-brown and sound hollow when tapped, about 30 minutes. Remove from pans and let cool completely on wire rack.

Asian Style Steel Cut Oats Recipe with a Fried Egg and Sriracha

by Billy Parisi in Recipes

Our family has really made a strong push to eat breakfast every single morning.  We’ve found that it really does make a huge difference in how we act, perform at work, and our attitudes towards one another.  They always say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but you have to be mindful of what you’re putting in your body every morning.  Even as a chef I run out of ideas and before you know it we’re back to cereal again, it’s so frustrating.  If it were up to me I’d be eating salmon lox and a bagel, but I’m pretty sure my wife and daughter would toss that straight out the window…  Ahhh the finer things in life.

In addition to ensuring we get some form of protein in the morning it’s also incredibly important for us to get some good carbs so we have some energy.  To help us not go back to sugary cereals we have been so impressed with the amazing hot, and cold, cereals that Bob’s Red Mill® offers.  We are huge fans of the muesli cereal.  It’s loaded with grains, raisins, oats, seriously it’s a winner.  We also make a ton of oatmeal in our house, and while oatmeal is just oatmeal unless you add some tasty ingredients it still starts with the oats.  Ever since I read this article in men’s health about steel cut oats, which was what Ryan Reynolds likes to eat (yes I have a man crush don’t judge!) I became a fan.  They tasty almost meatier and seem richer in oat flavor and more filling.

Because I already did Oatmeal 9 ways, I wanted to try something a little more savory so I made this Asian Style Steel Cut Oats Recipe with a Fried Egg and Sriracha.  I started by roasting up some fresh chopped ginger and garlic just until brown in some sesame oil and then I added in the Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats.  I sort of toasted them up and cooked them for a few minutes in the pot before I added in chicken stock.  Yes, I said chicken stock.  I decided at this point I wanted to make these oats risotto style so I added in a cup of chicken stock at a time until all of the liquid was soaked up.  If you never have “risottoed” anything it’s a process of constantly stirring while adding liquid to rice, or in my case steel cut oats, using a wooden spoon. You don’t really have to use a wooden spoon, but if you don’t you may have a few Italians yell at you.

I finished off the oats with a bit of cream cheese and honey to help provide some body and a little more flavor.  The honey is used to help offset some of the heat from the Sriracha on top of the egg.  It’s all about balance of flavors my friends!  I topped off the oatmeal with some sliced green onions, fresh cilantro leaves and a lemon wedge just in case things get way to spicy for you.  If you are looking to get out of the norm for breakfast and try something a little savory and spicy then this Asian Style Steel Cut Oats Recipe with a Fried Egg and Sriracha is your next stop.  It’s easy to make, packed with flavor and loaded with nutrients, good carbs and protein to get you off on the right foot.
