Product Processing

Montana Gluten Free processing center in Belgrade Montana is located in the pristine Gallatin Valley, the head water of the Missouri river, in the shadow of the Bridger Mountains.

Our products are manufactured in a dedicated state-of-the-art gluten free facility that only processes and packages our own gluten free products. The story however doesn’t begin there. To be truly gluten free you must start in the field (read more about our GF Purity Protocol). Montana Gluten Free Processors works directly with traditional farmers to grow our private seed stock on ground with at least 4 years history of no gluten grains being produced on the field. Only production from our proven healthy seed stock is acceptable for Montana Gluten Free production. Crops are planted, fields are inspected, and harvest, storage and transportation equipment is dedicated and inspected to insure purity and quality. We watch over our product from the field to the package to be certain that the product in our package is the best all natural gluten free product food you can buy.

What does ‘processing’ mean?

When PrOatina oat seed arrives at our site, we have to turn it from solid raw oat kernels into Raw Oatmeal, All Purpose Baking Mix, and more. We want to keep as much of the nutritional value as possible while providing the best product. To do this, we:

Clean – Oat seed is shaken with various mesh layers to separate the oat kernel from other plant material in a process that looks a bit like gold mining.

Roll – Oats to be made into oatmeal are rolled into flakes, squeezed between large rolling pins.

Grind – Oats used for Oat Bran, Oat Flour, All Purpose Baking Mix and other mixes is ground finer in a mechanical mill.

Toast – Some oats are toasted either before or after grinding and rolling in order to create our Toasted Oat products.
