Bob's Journey

He unlocked the secret to nature's super food!

Long before Bob’s Red Mill was the leading name in health foods across the country, there was a book and the inspiration to help people, one whole grain product at a time.

Bob's journey began in the mid '60s after coming across a book about an old stone-grinding flour mill. Unable to shake his vision of operating a flour mill that provided healthy and nutritious food, Bob tirelessly searched for his own set of usable millstones.

With a little time and persistence, Bob and his wife found several sets of millstones and began their first mill in Redding, California.

In 1978 the couple left the mill and retired to Oregon City, but fate stepped in one afternoon when Bob came across an old mill that was for sale. A few months later, Bob’s Oregon City based mill was producing stone ground flours and cereals for local customers.

The Whole Story

The edible part of a whole grain, the kernel, consists of three major parts: bran, germ and endosperm. Processed grains lack both the bran and the germ, making them void of dietary fiber, iron, and B vitamins. Whole grains, on the other hand, include all three parts, offering nutrients like fiber, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants. All these nutrients work in harmony to provide health benefits that are greater than the sum of their parts. Truly, nature's super food!
