Organic Peanut Butter

What is natural organic peanut butter

Organic peanut butter is made from all natural organically grown peanuts and other products without the aid of harmful chemicals or pesticides. Many brands of natural peanut butter have more nutritional value than conventionally made peanut butter because the manufacturers usually take extra care in sourcing the finest ingredients to go into their product. They also often cut down on sugar and salt content to give organic peanut butter the very best nutritional value.

Natural peanut butters generally contain at least 90 percent peanuts. No artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners are added to the product, whereas traditional peanut butter or commercial peanut butter often contains additives such as hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, salt, sugar and soy protein.

Natural peanut butter in its purest form is a purely natural product and  is not homogenized. As such it requires regular stirring and is sometimes referred to as stir peanut butter.

Commercial product manufacturers often produce a no stir natural variety that contains palm oil to act as a stabilizer. The palm oil prevents oil separation and helps to make the butter easier to spread and creamier in texture.

This slight difference in ingredient content and texture compared to regular peanut butter can take a little getting used to from a taste perspective. However, after a few servings, you will find that your taste buds will adjust.

Benefits of eating organic peanut butter

The simple ingredients contained within peanut butter make it a perfect healthy addition to a quick sandwich, multiple recipes and even smoothies. Before purchasing from the grocery store, it is wise to read the jar to gain an understanding of exactly what you are buying. The jar should contain such important product information as salt content, additives and importantly state 90 percent peanuts. Keep an eye out for other information such as added sugar content. Some regular peanut butter products can have as much as 250 mg of sugar per tablespoon.  When buying online this information and general nutrition advice can be obtained by viewing the product description

The key benefit of choosing to eat peanut butter organic is the obvious improved dietary aspect. Peanut butter consumed in small quantities has several benefits - these are-:

  • Peanuts are rich in the “good fats” - monounsaturated fats that help provide nutrients to the body and reduce cholesterol

  • Contains potassium and protein which helps to lower blood pressure

  • Rich in fibre content to aid bowel movements

  • Also contains magnesium, antioxidants and Vitamin E.
