Lost Peanut Butter! Please Help

If your Whole Foods carries a 365 Brand Organic, no salt, no sweetener PB that comes in a similar looking green container, it's the same PB. I spoke to someone at Golden Boy and was told they manufacture the 365 one and it's essentially the exact same formulation.

Have fun!

Lost Peanut Butter! Please Help

I'm not sure that this is the same company though I have reached out to them to check.

The website on their label is http://www.goldenboyfoods.com/main/de...

Lost Peanut Butter! Please Help

Hello Los Angeles,

For a while, Whole Foods had been carrying a brand of Organic Peanut Butter manufactured by Gold Boy Foods. Then they stopped. It is literally the best peanut butter I've ever experienced and I'm desperate to find it again.

Specifically, it's their Golden Organic Natural Peanut Butter I'm looking for.

Does anyone know where I can find it? Are there any local grocery stores that carry it? Does it have a distribution center in town?

Any and all leads are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

M

Organic Active Dry Yeast

This question came out of a newfound desire to eat as "clean" of food as possible and when I was looking for yeast at the store there was an organic one, so I grabbed it.

Das Ubergeek, I think the next time I go to the store what I'm going to do is just ask the people that work there for a suggestion and see what they come up with. I've already sent an email to the manufacturer and am waiting for a response but in the meantime the retailer is probably the best way to go.

Bob Brooks, I've spoken to some friends who catch their yeast and like JudiAU it sounds like a really tough process and I don't think I'm going to be baking bread often enough to warrant the flour investment.

This was a lot of great information, I didn't realize such a dialogue could be opened about yeast. Thanks for all your help!

Organic Active Dry Yeast

Honestly, you bring up something I hadn't even thought about.

All the recipes I've been looking at online have called for active dry yeast and when I went to the store (Whole Foods) there was an organic option so I figured why not, organic is always better than not. Now you bring up wild yeast and I've restarted my google research.

You seem well versed in the realm of yeast, why do you think wild yeast is more beneficial than cultivated yeast/can I get it in bulk/does it work the same way?

Organic Active Dry Yeast

Hello,

I've recently gotten into baking my own bread and have been using packets of RiZE organic active dry yeast. It seems that these individual packets will start to making the personal bread baking very pricey and I was wondering if anyone here knew where, in Los Angeles, I could buy organic active dry yeast in bulk.

Any and all help appreciated.

Thanks.
