How Helsinki Mills’ gluten free oat products are made? How do we ensure that oats remain gluten free from field to table? Follow the journey of oats from the farm to the table.
Helsinki Mills’ gluten free oat products are made from pure oats, which we buy directly from our own contracted farmers. Our oat products are made in our oat mill in Vaasa, close to Finland’s best oat-growing lands. Helsinki Mills’ oats are Finnish local food at its best.
Helsinki Mills’ gluten free oats are already clean in the field
Oats are the only naturally gluten free Finnish grain. To remain completely gluten free, they are carefully kept separate from other grains. Farmers sow the fields with carefully selected oat seeds and go around the fields several times during the growing season to check and weed out any other grains.
GLUTEN FREE FIELDS
The fields are sown with oat seeds that are separate from other grains. Gluten free varieties, such as rapeseed and peas, are used in the cultivation cycle of the fields. Flowering varieties also benefit bees.
HARVEST WITH CLEAN MACHINES
Oats are harvested only with combine harvesters used in gluten free fields.
TRANSPORT WITH CLEAN TRUCKS
Oats are transported from the farms to the mill in trucks in which cleanliness has been ensured.
OUR OWN GLUTEN FREE PRODUCTION LINES
The gluten free status of the oats is verified in the mill’s own laboratory at different stages of the process, such as receiving and processing the grain.
