The Uhlmann Company is proud to announce Non-GMO Project Verification for the Heckers and Ceresota unbleached and whole wheat baking flours. As a family owned company, we take great pride in the quality and integrity of our products, and this verification helps us deliver on that pledge.
The Non-GMO Project offers the only independent verification in North America for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) avoidance.
Our Heckers and Ceresota unbleached and whole wheat flours are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard—that means ongoing testing of all GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and audits to ensure that we’re meeting the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.
We are currently in the process of updating both Heckers and Ceresota flour packaging to include the Non-GMO Project Verified seal; the Uhlmann Company respects consumer’s right to know what is in their food. With GMOs now present in more than 75% of conventional processed food, choosing Non-GMO Project Verified flour like Heckers and Ceresota is the most reliable way for families to avoid GMOs.
Heckers and Ceresota unbleached flours have been a favorite with bakers since 1843 and 1891 respectfully; milled originally to meet the demands of the best European bakers. We start with a special blend of premium wheat that has more protein than most leading brands. Then, we let it whiten naturally—no chemicals, bleaching agents, no bromate, and now Non-GMO Project Verified.
