Shiloh Farms Organic Grain Flakes

by Anne Paddock

Look no further than Lancaster, Pennsylvania where organic, non-GMO whole grain flakes are packaged for Shiloh Farms.

Spelt, barley, and kamut flakes look remarkably similar to rolled oats but have subtle nutty flavor differences which can liven up and energize a variety of breakfast and snack foods. Delicious alone or combined with each other and oats, whole grain flakes make a nutritious and delicious hot cereal or mid-morning pick-me-up. Simply cook according to the package directions (5-20 minutes) or add as is to a homemade muesli recipe (click here for a fantastic not too sweet muesli recipe).

Shiloh Farms makes three wholesome, organic, non-GMO and kosher whole grain flakes:

  • Whole Grain Kamut Wheat FlakesShiloh_Farms_Kamut_Flakes
  • Whole Grain Rolled Barley Flakesshiloh-farms-organic-barley-flakes

A great source of protein and fiber, these flakes are quick cooking and are beloved for their hearty texture and sweet nuttiness.  1/2 cup of dry flakes has 5-6 grams of protein, 4-6 grams of fiber, virtually no fat (0-0.5 grams) and no sodium, sugar, or cholesterol.  The flakes are also a great source of iron providing 10-15% of the recommended daily amount per serving.Shiloh_Farms_Grain_Flakes

The organic grain flakes come in resealable 1-pound plastic packets that sell for $4-$6 on the company’s on-line shop (www.shilohfarms.com) or at www.vitacost.com.
