RICE: Whole grain rice, Stoneground Rice Flour, Rice Cereal, Rice Bran Oil|
Grandma Whimsy's Cupboard has operated as a licensed food processing plant since 2002 in Big Pool, MD to provide whole grain rice products that are healthy, tasty, affordable and accessible and ALWAYS GLUTEN FREE. Our mills are dedicated to the production of rice products.
The company was founded after company owner, Carol Jean Roberts, was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1984, She used her home kitchen to develop a rice flour for general baking to substitute for the wheat she could no longer eat However, the rice flour was difficult to find and/or very expensive. Thus, at the Ninth World Symposium on Celiac Disease held in MD in 2000 (first time ever held in the US), Grandma Whimsy's Cupboard products were introduced to the World just to see if people from all around the world liked them as well as those who had already tasted them here in the US and Canada. They did!! Carol was asked to "PLEASE!" put the products on the market as they were too good not to be out there where people could get them ... and so she did. Grandma Whimsy's Cupboard became a commercial business in 2002. It became necessary within a year to purchase a bigger mill and move to a larger space in the building.
The popularity of this unique flour comes from the fact that Grandma Whimsy's all purpose rice flour can be used with regular cookbooks or family recipes by simple substitution of the flour called for (and replacement of any other ingredient that might contain gluten). No gum or other substitutions are necessary for general baking. Making the transition to a gluten free diet is made simple by the ease of use of Grandma Whimsy's flour products. Try some ... your whole family will enjoy your results. You don't have to be required to eat GF.
Our processing facility is dedicated to rice stone mills in a gluten free environment. Again by popular demand, we are expanding our production levels of both flour and cereal. We are in the process of finding a new site to relocate our milling operation once again to a larger site. We are a wholesale supplier for stores, bakeries and co-ops to help serve a larger community of individuals looking to eat healthier with good tasting foods. We can supply organic or non organic product offerings. Let us know what you would like. We will try our very best to meet your request.
We invite you to try our rice products and give us your honest feed back.
