Looking to buy bread flour that is from wheat grown in europe

Because I am gluten sensitive to bread products, I have heard that products produced from wheat grown in  Europe might be ok for me to eat. Does anyone know of a source (here in Los Angeles, or anywhere in the country) that sells flour that is imported from Europe? Thanks. I found one online but they want to sell only large quantities, and I want to buy a smaller amount first. Jim

There really should be at least a few in LA. Czech, Lithuanian, Latvian, Polish, Russian and so on.

if you are still looking for central european flour, i will gladly sent it to you in exchange for high gluten flour formu USA - preferably KAF or mantioba.  During spring and summer, there will be troubles with spelt, but other types of flour will not be problem, mostly in organic quality.  

But if you are gluten sensitive, than no wheat, rye, barley, spelt, einkonr, kamut, semolina and other flour are  suitable to you.  You are sensitive for  glianding - protein, part of glutein. And it is at all that grains.  There are some wild, unproven theories, that long fermented wholerye russian breads are suitable for gluten intolerant people, but there are not enough voluntarie to try this teories...  

 

if anybody is interested in   USA-Europe  flour exchange -  send me an email for  zuzkaou et gmail.com

cost-effective alternative -- I am assuming you want flour with very high gluten content -- try Finnish flours. I bought 12 kilos just today with a protein content of 14%.
