(Simple Mills Fact Sheet)
Simple Mills utilizes quality ingredients, which include: Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Cassava, Flax, Arrowroot, Coconut Sugar and Cocoa. The quality ingredients Simple Mills uses for their products provide nutritional benefits and flavor for consumers.
What’s so excellent about the Simple Mills Company is that all Simple Millsproducts are:
* NON-GMO Verified
* Certified Gluten-Free
* Soy – Free
* Free of artificial flavors & fillers
For Higher Education professionals, staff and students seeking healthy alternatives for traditional flours, Simple Mills in my opinion is a possible suitable alternative. Another notable worthy feature that sets Simple Mills apart is that their product recipes are crafted to keep blood sugar levels low, boost vitamin and mineral content and they utilize coconut sugar and almond flour in their products.
The use of coconut sugar and almond flour assists in lowering carbohydrate counts and glycemic indexes to help in the support of digestive health and minimizing blood sugar impact. (Simple Mills Fact Sheet)

" The pancake & waffle mix was great. I made waffles and the taste and texture of the waffle was excellent. The Simple Mills mix did not leave me heavy and full, instead I felt light and extremely satisfied. The ingredients are simple which makes Simple Mills Almond Flour Pancake & Waffle mix a breakfast win in my book! The Simple Mills Almond Flour Rosemary & Sea Salt Crackers are tasty and pack a lot of flavor. These are the first flour-less crackers I've tried and were very good. I especially like how these crackers are thin and not thick like traditional crackers."
