"Handy Pantry Provides Only Certified Organic Wheatberries!"
These are the words that Handy Pantry uses to describe their Hard Red Wheat Sprouting Seeds. Here they explain what that means, and why that makes their seeds so special.
In the Words of Handy Pantry...
Handy Pantry has had the experience of sprouting wheatberries and being in the commercial wheatgrass sprouting business over the last 16 years. During that time they have experimented with many different kinds of wheat. They have worked with sprouting wheat from Texas, Utah, Montana, California, and Israel – both organic wheatberries and non organic.
There are three kinds of sprouting wheatberries one can buy for sprouting: chemical free wheatberries, organic wheatberries, and certified organic wheatberries. Most sprouting wheatberries are chemical free in that the farmer might or might not use an herbicide to control the weeds in his fields. If he uses chemicals on the wheat, it will cause a distinct taste in the bread --- thus no chemicals are used on the sprouting wheatberries themselves. Organic sprouting wheatberries are grown by farmers who have not used any chemicals on their land for over ten years.
Then there are certified organic wheatberries: Certified organic wheatberries are the same as organic in that the wheat is grown by farmers who have not used chemicals on their land for over ten years. The difference is the certification. If a wheat is organic and you grow it in organic soil, it will have the necessary organisms in the soil to help it assimilate the minerals properly. Organic produce should also have the organism on it which produces cobalamin (B-12)
