GLUTEN FREE STARTER PACK contains two alive starters: buckwheat and/or sorghum or brown rice (depending on availability of flour)
Both starters are made from organic stoneground buckwheat or sorghum and brown rice flour. Buckwheat is not a relative of wheat, in fact it is a grass-like plant from the rhubarb family. Buckwheat contains no gluten.
The starter pack comes with instructions for both buckwheat and brown rice starter.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that I can not guarantee that any products I use or make for all my classes and online shop including gluten free classes, gluten free starters and water kefir are 100% free of gluten, nuts, eggs, dairy and soy . Many suppliers of gluten free products (including some products manufactured by The Gluten Free Co.) state that their products may contain traces of eggs, dairy, gluten, nuts and soy. I teach and work in a facility where I use flours containing gluten and I may use eggs, nuts and dairy on a daily basis as my main work is for wheat/rye/spelt sourdough. If you are not sure, my advice is to purchase my book and use your own gluten free or allergen free ingredients to make your own gluten free or rye sourdough starters and any sourdough breads or products.
