ISO kosher tamarind paste

Help! I have been reading Jennifer Abadi's cookbook, "A Fistful of Lentils," (from the library), and want to try some of the recipes. A frequently used ingredient in Syrian-Jewish cooking is tamarind paste, for sourness in sweet & sour foods.

Now I haven't been able to find a paste that has a hecksher! At Global Foods, here in St. Louis, I found a package of paste made in Thailand, that contains "tamarind, salt.", but that is not sufficiently o.k. for my home use.

Does anyone know of any kosher paste????
Thanks, p.j.
