Grains that are Safe

In regard to grains, the safe ones include:

  • Corn
  • Rice
  • Cassava
  • Quinoa
  • Sorghum
  • Chia
  • Flax
  • Amaranth
  • Arrowroot
  • Millet
  • Kasha
  • Nut flours
  • Soy flour

In the event that some slight degree of cross contamination has been involved, the product should have more than 20 ppm. Also, some of these grains and/or their respective flours can only be found in health food or specialty stores. Either way, for any of these items that come pre-packaged, checking the labels for cross contamination would be a prudent precaution.
