The full list of ingredients include garlic, onions, chilies, soy nuts, mushroom powder, spices, non-GMO canola oil, turbinado sugar, salt You can now buy 7 oz. jars for $11.99 directly from the Mr. Bing site.

RENEWAL MILL

Renewal Mill was founded out of its owners desire to create more sustainable food waste solutions. They found out that the byproducts of plant-based milk production—usually pulps, like soybean pulp, oat pulp, and almond pulp—can be dried and milled into a small powder that’s perfect for use as baking and cooking flour. And that’s exactly what they sell from Okara flour (made from soybeans) to brownie making kits, all of which can be bought online.
