Conagra's been discussed here before.

Their flours are bleached and bromated - apparently they use the carcinogen, potassium bromate.

If anyone has a nAmish Bulk STore somewhere close call them. They also carry KA flour. I just bought 50# for $ -.47/lb which seems to me pretty good. They can order for you in bulk whatever their supplier carries. Here in the east it is Duch Valley. Go on their website <<Dutch Valley .com>> to see what they offer.
