“I have seen you mention a brand called Bionaturae in your recipes section. I am very interested in using more products that are not in cans. Can you tell me where I can find this brand?” ~ S.C, New Mexico.
Circkle’s response: Bionaturae is a very small company and many retailers have not had to deal with consumers demanding products packaged in glass rather than cans so may not carry their line of tomato sauce and paste in glass jars. We have found it at most Vitamin Cottage stores and Whole Foods. Often if your local stores don’t carry an item they are able to special order it. It’s worth checking into.
“What’s happening to Eclectic Institute? There are very few stores that carry their brand anymore and the one store where I could still find their supplements is phasing them out. I have read that they are one of the best quality herbal supplements out there. Please email me and let me know your thoughts or anyone elses.
Thanks. ~T.J. in Colorado
Circkle’s response to J.J. You are right J.J., they are considered one of the best herbal supplement manufacturers, but their higher prices and lack of educating are why consumers are not supporting them and neither are store. Consumers tend to purchase what is cheapest and not necessarily what’s better. See if your local health food store can special order them. Eclectic has a website, but ordering online is even more expresive. Sorry this news wasn’t better.
