Better Batter and their ingredients! How allergy free is it really?

    Flour Gluten Free - 20OZ,(Better Batter)
      I wanted to share this email from the CEO of Better Batter, Naomi Poe, about her mix.  It is also posted in the comment section under the Better Batter Review I did, but I wanted to make it a separate post because of the information she shared with me.  

A few things: our products except for our brownie mix are corn free - at last check our xanthan gum was grown on sugar beet molasses in the US and there was no protein content in it.

Our pectin is sourced in the United States (California) from lemons grown in CA. We work closely with the first line producer of the pectin and know them personally. No corn issues there.

Financially, I wouldn't suggest you buy it at retail in the store, to be honest. At your level of use, you'd do better to buy directly from the company. We offer amazing financial aid for families on a fixed income and those with children with developmental issues - I've found most large families qualify for the financial aid program.

Between the financial aid program and our many bulk buying programs available by buying directly, most people find it's actually better to buy from us than to make the Mock Better Batter.

I carefully source every grain and starch in the mix and we can tell you any all all countries of origin, subingredients etc - as a mom who's survived cancer and who has a family with MANY allergies, I'm personally involved in this part of our company, passionately.

       Wow!  How many business do you know that provides financial aid to help buying their gluten free products, and one that is a staple in every kitchen - flour!  I have to tell you just on the research for lemon pectin, it is expensive!  I believe by the time you are done searching for ingredients and making it, it is well worth buying the Better Batter product instead.  This company seems to be really providing not only a great product but a great service!  My hats off to Mrs. Poe !  Thanks for a great flour, and for disclosing where the ingredients come from!

Thanks Naomi!!!!!

As we know products can change over time and here are some things you may also need to consider:
1.  Their flour is manufactured in a facility with eggs, soy, almond, coconut, walnut, and pecan.  You can read about that on their FaceBook Page.
2.  Read this about the presence of corn better-batter-ingredients-a corn presence?
