Organic Flours Rules

Hello.



Does anybody know if the organic certification in general(both the European and the UK ones) allows organic flour companies to add factory/chemical refined gluten(especially to bread flours) or if that problem regards only non organic flours?


 


Thanks

An organic flour mill can add organic vital wheat gluten to organic flour - or any dough conditioner that is certified organic - and still market their product as organic ... the product should appear on their organic certification.
