...and wanted to make a pb sandwich, so I used the pb with vegetable oils and all that unhealthy stuff (and it was creamy too, I hate creamy lol) and wow I have realized how natty pb tastes SO MUCH BETTER and not to mention it's more healthy for you. I wonder sometimes how people live without natty pb.

Thank you for sharing.

The difference between them is that the oil is hydrogenated in the processed peanut butter.

ElPietro, yes that's what I meant...the hydrogenated crap. It gives my throat a bad aftertaste. In fact, I can still taste it now. :bang:

I know, I'm just pointing out that hydrogenated veggie oil pb tastes nasty. I wasn't saying that I can never get natty pb again or anything.

I meant it was really sticky, I could barely open and close my jaw. Rubber cement dosent taste awesome either. And yeah I stirred in the oil.

I really don't think it is going to matter whether you eat natural pb or commercial brands (Jiff, Peter Pan, Skippy, etc.). If you prefer one over the other then go with it.

why would you want to consume all those plastic fats that are in those commercial brands and not use all natural pb!

Did you read the link that I posted? The amount of trans-fatty acids in regular peanut butter is not significant, which is why I recommended eating what you like.

To me, I find virtually no difference in taste from regular or Natty PB. Other than if you get like the smooth and creamy types.

I'd generally use natural simply because it's just that, and has less processing. I never claimed anything on trans-fat, only that it contains hydrogenated fat, which to me if I don't need it, and it doesn't impact taste, I might as well go without it.

Ultimately, you could make your own PB in a blender with some of your own olive oil if you want to be super hardcore on the issue.

Ultimately, I agree with Bradely, probably not gonna make a huge difference either way, unless you are a PB freak like Getfit.

So you trust the USDA for information about their opinion of "insignificant" amounts of food additives?

Most of us here consume natural PB for the healthy fat. If I'm going to bother eating a fat, I would rather get it right.

I do because that is one of the few sources that actually deal with the topic. I would suppose you do to since you are trusting the nutrition facts label on the side of the jar, which is only there because of the FDA, and I am sure you know they are a government organization as well. If you have anything stating something different I would be eager to read it.

Well, put it this way.

I believe they list what's actually in the jar, because that's easy to check.

But I come to a screeching halt when it comes to believing their guidelines for proper nutrition.

I'd no more believe them when they say the amount of trans-fat in peanut butter is insignificant than I would trust them for dietary guidelines (that would have me eating about 75g of protein on my roughly 2000-calorie-a-day diet).

Besides, many of us here are eating WAY more than a "serving" of peanut butter a day. And like I said, most of us eat it as a (yummy!) healthy fat source. Kinda defeats the purpose if that fat is partially wrecked before you eat it.

Well, either way, if commercial pb isn't bad for you, I still think natty tastes better.
