No Substitute - The Grinder - CHOW: "I just made two quarts of my version of Postum this morning. I'm a chef, so I looked at the label, looked at the online recipes and developed my own very good alternative. I'm not going to sell it because I use it as an alternative to coffee for health reasons. Coffee, chocolate, tea, and barley malt all block iron absorption because of the high tannin content. I almost died of severe anemia last year, so I started drinking postum because Pero and all of the other substitutes have barley malt."
