HOW TO BUY PEANUT BUTTER

Did you know it is safer to buy jar peanut butter preserved with sorbic acid than to buy fresh peanut butter? I was surprised to discover this but in my research I discovered that while nuts and seeds are great health foods, they should not be purchased from the bulk bins in many of the "health food" stores even if they are labeled organic!  Fresh peanuts from bulk bins may actually contain cancer-causing substances called aflatoxins.  Aflatoxins are the by-product of a common mold that grows on grains, nuts, and seeds.
