Lara Bars

It has recently come to my attention that Lara Bars may no longer be corn-free. Some bars now have "natural flavors" listed on the ingredients.

Also, See Delphi - Avoiding Corn: "Lara Bars, Alert" for reported reactions.

A member of Delphi Forums has contacted the company and I'll post an update when I hear anything. Until then, Lara Bars has been removed from the Corn-Free List.

Idun Yeast - Norweigen Import

Idun Torr Gjaer yeast was found in Houston at their Norwegian Seaman's Church, and may possibly be found at other imported goods stores.

My husband (a Norwegian) confirmed with the company that no corn is used to grow the yeast. The yeast is grown on a mix of locally grown grains (barley, rye, wheat, and oats).

Idun's own website can be found at www.stabburet.no - though do be aware that their website is entirely in Norwegian.

** Update ** Idun Yeast has been found for sale at Marina Market.com. As of yet though, I've not heard if anyone has ordered from them, so I can't comment on the company. The yeast was merely seen for sale there.
