I learned about high bulk index garlic powder (HBI) from Alton Brown a few years back when he used it on Good Eats.

Searching the Internet, I discovered I could get it from The Savory Spice Shop ( About a month ago, as my supply started to run low, I went to order some more from them, only to find it gone from their website. So I called their store and was told that they can no longer get HBI garlic powder.

I've since searched the Internet again only to come up empty this time. Does anyone know of another source of HBI garlic powder? Or am I destined using pedestrian granulated garlic the powder from now on?

Note: Garlic Snobs who are poised to tell me that it will be condemned to eternal damnation for using garlic powder in the first place are invited to keep their comments to themselves.
