    Economical equivalent to Danactive

    This seems kind of expensive as time goes on. I don't want to penny pinch over my child's Health but at $5.50 for an eight pack it adds up. (3.1 oz. each) Is there some really special culture you can't find elsewhere if just the packaging and taste that make it fly. We have some smoothies...

    Quick quinoa question

    I am cooking this product each day and the bags says bring to vigorous boil then reduce to simmer and cover. Why can't I just bring it to simmer and skip the boil. I bet it is to kill some bacteria or something but is this really important? Is it an issue like once in a million times. It...

    Chain type soup - revolution or revelation?

    Some might be afraid to help me copy Paneras broccoli cheddar soup and others will help me. I am like the little David against the big Goliath. All I want to do is try to mimic the great soup we get there to make it cheaper at home (for my wife). It has something that gives it a thick rich...
