Azure Standard is a distributor of organic and natural food products, with over 9,000 to choose from and over 200 gluten free food items from a host of producers.
That makes it so much easier than driving all over Bellingham WA and Whatcom County to find different ingredients to make one recipe.
Azure Lynden 360-318-9795 is an open drop point serving Bellingham WA and Whatcom County. We'll explain a drop point in a minute.
We are not sure why gluten has become such a huge issue for so many people, but one thing's for sure, it's a challenge to find gluten free food, especially reasonably priced, from one source in the Bellingham WA Whatcom County area.
By choice, my wife as been gluten free and processed sugar free for six months. At 42, she looks like she is in her 20's, feels great, and has a refreshing energy that she didn't use to have. I'm working on it.
Some people believe the gluten free issues have arose from foods being genetically modified, referred to as GMO. ( Genetically Modified Organism ) It's a great idea, take a corn splice into the dna and implant a link in the dna strand that creates a roundup ready plant. A plant that you can pour round up herbicide on and kill the weeds and not affect the life of the plant. Unfortunately we don't know the long term affects of eating GMO food.
Azure Standard began as a small farm in the 1950's, then in the 1970's they went with the crowd and started the chemical cycle of farming. Two years was enough, after that they took their farm out of the chemical cycle and started producing organic crops.
Selling through farmers markets and local stores, people asked if they could get other organic and natural food products as well. Azure Standard is now the third largest distributor of organic and natural food products in the United States.
They reach into local communities through open drop points. Once a group of friends have $550.00 or more in orders each month, a semi delivers the order right to the customer. My wife and I have been buying from Azure Standard for four years. We took over our drop point two years ago, and now serve over 100 people in our co-op.
We all order once a month, and pay no shipping. That's huge, because Azure Standard sells many 50lb quantities of wheat, rice, beans and such. The neat thing is they also have smaller quantities of the same organic and natural food products.
We were at the Northwest Washington Fair promoting Azure Lynden, what we call our drop point, and there were lots of people asking about gluten free food products and how hard it is to find a good source in the Bellingham WA area. Just finding a source with more than just a few choices can be challenging. Azure Standard currently has over 200 gluten free food products.
First thing is to create a new account on Azure Standards website, this will let you see pricing. Then call my wife Chris and she will give you our drop point number and more details.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
