Fun Facts about Peanuts:

  • Peanuts originated in South America, where they were cultivated by Indians for at least 2000 years. Spaniards and Portuguese introduced them to Africa and Europe. Slaves and traders introduced them to the American South.

A Little Bit About Our Business…

 

East Wind Peanut Butter is a delicious, nourishing food. We purchase the freshest, highest quality peanuts. Our growers provide us with certificates of analysis to ensure the highest quality. At East Wind, the peanuts are dry-roasted, then cooled and mechanically blanched to remove the skins. Then the peanuts are milled into smooth or crunchy peanut butter, with or without added salt. East Wind peanut butter not only tastes great, but also is a healthy, nutritious addition to your diet. It is delicious on bread or spread on apple slices, celery sticks and bananas. Warm from the mill, East Wind Natural Peanut Butter is available in 16-oz. glass jars (4-pack), 16-oz. glass jars (case) or bulk, in 5-lb. buckets or 35-lb. tubs.

East Wind Organic Peanut Butter is made from peanuts which are certified organic by USDA Stellar Certification. It is one of our most popular nut butters. The taste and quality that goes into every jar begins in the field with the peanut crop. Organic crops take extra care, as they are grown according to strict standards that must be documented at every step by the grower. Our roasting and milling process is similar to our Natural Peanut Butter. No stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors. Crunchy or smooth,it's just peanuts— and sea salt, if you fancy it (with salt only available in smooth). East Wind Organic Peanut Butter can be purchased in 16-oz. glass jars (4-pack), 16-oz. glass jars (case) or bulk, in 5-lb. buckets or 35-lb. tubs.

We also sell roasted peanuts, both organic and natural, in 25-lb boxes. These are excellent for indviduals and businesses who like to grind their own peanut butter.

East Wind Peanut Butter is 100 Percent Safe. Please read East Wind Nut Butters' Quality Assurance Statement in reference to the recent FDA recalls on peanut butter. Our peanuts and our facilities are diligently tested for the safety of our product.
