Hi, i'm Lydia of Lydia’s Healthy Edibles, LLC which is a Family Owned Business located in Memphis Tennessee. The company was born out of a great necessity. My husband has been dealing with digestive issues for most of his life. A few years after we were married, we found out that he is allergic to wheat, thus the need for Gluten Free Flours. So I did what any good wife would do, I put on my lab coat and goggles, stepped into the kitchen and went to work. It took a lot of research to discover what my husband could and couldn’t eat. I paid close attention to milling my own grains and beans. I got my first grain mill and I was in heaven. My family and friends were so impressed that I turned it into a business to service the people that need other options to cook and bake with. I hope that you enjoy our products as much as our family does.
