Gluten Free Certified Products: Valley Flaxflour Ltd sells its products under the brand name Valley Kitchen; these listed Products have been Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Food Program (GFFP) since 2021, and the National Celiac Association endorses the GFFP certification program.

Co-owners Howard Selig and Wendy Rodda have been grinding flax flour for many years. In fact, this year 2021 marks two decades of milling gluten-free flours and mixes in Middleton.

Howard’s skill and knowledge have earned him the Taste of Nova Scotia Product of the Year for his Pancake and Cookie Mix in 2016 and the Outstanding Innovator of the Year award in 2017 from the Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Even the British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver used Valley Flaxflour’s products in his protein bread recipe that was in his book Superfoods

 The link between Howard’s specialty products and health is no accident. Howard is a chef and registered dietician and the company grew out of the need in long-term care facilities for a source of milled flax seeds.
