Grainworks Organic Oat flour is made fresh to order in small batches from our healthy, farm-grown hulled oats! When you buy our oat flour, you can be sure it's "just milled" fresh so all of its goodness and flavours are preserved. That's important because oat flour is so high in beneficial oils it has a shorter shelf life than many other flours.

They're high in calcium, thiamine, and iron and contain the most soluble fiber of any grain. Whole oats contain the antioxidant avenanthramide, which clinical studies show helps protect against some cancers and heart disease. Oats also have anti-inflammatory properties.

Please note: Though oat flour has no gluten, our oat flour is not guaranteed to be gluten-free as products containing gluten are ground with the same mills as the oats.
