I bought some natty PB and compared it to regular pb I had in the house. With the same ammounts they are even as far as protien, carbs and fat go. Why would natty be better? If they are the same stuff nutritional value wise.

Well if i remember correctly there is usually less sugar and sodium in natty pb than the 'typical' stuff.

I ahve a container of each at the house, i will give it a look and see what the difference is.

Compare the ingredients, not the fat content.

commercial pb uses stabilizers of sorts to reduce/stop separation of the oils. some natty pb comes without salt. all in all, it isn't a life or death decision. choose which one you like best, or is cheapest (in some cases that is natty).

just make sure you don't get a reduced fat peanut butter. those have tons of sugar in them. otherwise, natty is better but not by much.

:withstupi

That reduced fat stuff is such a con. They just replace all the healthy fats with simple sugar.
