We have been making delicious, all natural nut butters since 1981. We take great pride in producing quality, wholesome natural and organic butters that can be bought at a reasonable price. Our products come in both grocery and bulk sizes. No sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, hydrogenated oils or other stabilizers are added. We carefully select high quality, non-GMO nuts and seeds. All of our products are gluten-free and certified Kosher.
We produce peanut butter, both organic and non-organic, both crunchy and smooth, and both with and without salt. We also make crunchy and smooth almond butter, raw and roasted cashew butter and organic tahini. We package our butters in 35 lb buckets, and cases of 16 oz. jars (12 per case).
We Work Hard To Provide You The Best Quality Nut Butters.
Unlike many of our competitors, we choose not to process our nut butter continuously. Instead, we carefully roast, mill, and package our butters in small batches. Why? Because with small batches, we produce fresh, hand-crafted, excellent tasting nut butter. Our nut butters are tried and true, simple and natural. We give you wholesome ingredients for a healthy life.
Our Peanut butter comes from 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. 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 Almond Butter is made from Mission variety almonds. We never purchase almonds sprayed with PPO and our growers provide certificate of analysis to ensure the quality of the almonds.
After dry-roasting and cooling, we mill the unblanched almonds into Smooth or Crunchy Almond Butter. With the skins left on, East Wind Almond Butter has a dark, rich color and flavor. Our Almond Butter has no added ingredients— just fresh-roasted almonds. No stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors.
Cashews are nuts which grow from the bottom of apple-like fruits on cashew trees. The nuts have two shells with a bitter liquid layer between them. The nut supplier applies heat to remove the liquid and make the shells brittle enough to crack and remove. So “raw” cashews are not completely unprocessed, but are as close to raw as is available on the market. East Wind’s cashews usually come from Brazil.
To make raw cashew butter, we lightly roast the cashews. This removes excess moisture but does not change the color or taste. Roasted cashew butter has a darker color and a rich roasted flavor. Small amounts of high-oleic expeller-pressed safflower oil are added to our Cashew Butters during milling to provide a spreadable consistency. No preservatives, sugar or salt are added.
Tahini is a seed butter made from sesame seeds. which we usually get from Mexico or Nicaragua. Since it is naturally somewhat bitter, most people do not use it as a spread like other nut butters. It is used in many popular vegetarian and Middle Eastern recipes.
Because the sesame seeds in East Wind Tahini are lightly roasted, our tahini is less bitter than some brands. The only ingredient is mechanically-hulled sesame seeds. No stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors.
