View Full Version : Peanut butter - for the last time, I promise!

05-05-2003, 03:04 PM
Bought a jar of this stuff; should be natty. The package says there's some salt and suggar added - but that's next to nothing; doesn't taste like there's any at all, so I guess it ain't much. However, the sticker does not tell me about the contents more than that - so, you know. Just pass me a link; where can I find all this stuff when I need to; how much protein there is and so on.

Thanks (damn I shouldn't have done that:) )

If it has sugar (maltodextrin) added then it sounds like the reduced fat natural peanut butter.

If it's not 'just peanuts', it's not natty....

The Smucker's reduced fat natural peanut butter has less fat but added maltodextrin. Don't know if this should really be considered natty but they call it that:)

I should have qualified that with 'IMHO' at the end . . . :)

peanuts = natty
peanuts + salt = natty
peanuts, salt + anything else used to stabilize the oils = not-exactly-natty

i buy my "natty" pb at one of the local health food groceries - which is suprisingly the only thing i can find cheaper there. it carries the grocery label (Wild Oats) on it (so they paid someone else to re-package) and is by far the best tasting pb (natty or not) i have ever had.

Kroger has okay natty peanut butter, smuckers is one of the best commercial products

You can also look around in some of the health food stores and find things like almond butter and cashew butter. I usually stick with Smucker's because it is usually all the supermarket has and the health food stores are limited in the small town I live in.

Smuckers is good but IMHO the Kroger brand natty PB is the best.

Pretty much has the same fat content as peanut butter. Maybe a little more, but that is the whole point.
