Montina is a brand name of a type of flour created from milled Indian ricegrass (Achnatherum hymenoides), a type of grass native to the western United States. Indian rice grass was grown and used by Native Americans as much as 7,000 years ago.[1] The grass is not related to rice, and the flour is gluten-free.

Indian ricegrass is grown by local farmers and processed at individually owned and dedicated gluten-free plants. The majority of farms producing Montina in the United States use no GMOs in the growing of the ricegrass or processing of Montina.[2]
