Packaging: This item is packed inside a mylar bag and then that bag is put inside a 5-gallon pail. If your pail arrives “sucked in,” this can be normal due to changes in elevation during transit. If this happens to your bucket simple open the seal to the lid to “reinflate” the pail, then put the lid back on. This will NOT shorten the shelf life of the product as it doesn’t affect the mylar bag and will still keep rodents out.
Shelf life estimates are based on industry studies from sources deemed reputable. Since Rainy Day Foods has no control over individual storage practices, they must disclaim any liability or warranty for particular results.
Shelf Life: Should be stored in cool dark place- optimum condition is 60 degrees or less- for longer storage. Storing properly in our enameled cans and Super pail buckets, product may store 25+ years.
Directions: It is not a wheat so is gluten free. Pancakes and waffles are the most common uses. May be cooked as a cereal or ground for baking purposes. As it contains no gluten it should be mixed with other flours for baking.
