Wildly Beloved Foods is proud to be the first Certified Organic operation in the United States to use Molino Grassi Italian Organic semolina flour.
This document is the Molino Grassi Certificate of Analysis, required to ensure organic integrity of the flour we source from Molino Grassi in Parma, Italy. As you may see below, it is a three page document that lists the analysis and results for 98 highly toxic and harmful chemicals. The result is N.R., meaning none reported. All of our pastas are made from this flour.
The chemicals listed include more commonly know chemicals such as 2,4 D, a common lawn chemical used by maintenance and parks and recreation agencies for schools, parks and golf courses, and is available for home use in this country. For more information on this chemical and others, visit https://www.ewg.org/areas-focus/toxic-chemicals/24-d#.
Another chemical to note is Chlorpyrifos, listed in two forms, both toxic and undetected. Chlorpyrifos is an agricultural pesticide that has been widely used in California’s Central Valley, where most of the produce, grains, fruits and nuts are grown for the entire country. It is a neuro-toxin and is particularly harmful to the developing brains of children. It has been linked to autism in children from prenatal exposure. A woman’s placenta acts as a fetal programmer, where exposure to certain chemicals then shapes development and the formation of disorders and disease.
