It doesn't need to be refrigerated (I guess it's the palm oil), and doesn't separate like natty. And most importantly it doesn't make me fart like a chorus of winos. YYYYEEEEAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

It does still have sugar in it, though, but hell I can live with that.

Right - i didn't formulate correctly. I meant has sugar like the other mass market brands.

If it has both palm oil (which as a stabliser is also responsible for the lack of separation) and sugar then how does it classify as natty pb?

I use Kraft Natural Peanut butter. It's cheaper than the stuff in the health food section.

Ingredients: Roasted peanuts.

I think it's just a labelling thing. Everything in the product is natural - unprocessed.

I'd eat natty, but for some stupid reason it tears me up. I run people out of the building at work it's so bad. I think it's a problem with digesting the oils because I have the same problem with flax oil and olive oil. It's weird because it's a fairly recent phenomenon (as within the last couple of years). I'd been able to take all that stuff before. Fortunately, now I've found a somewhat suitable replacement. I read the label last night. It only has 3 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons and no transfats, so I can live with that.

Palm oil and sugar are both natural foods.

No, cause I eat mixed nuts all day long - it's definitely the oil. Natty seems to have alot more oil than other types. It's strange, I've actually poured off the oil from a new jar of natty - which I didn't really want to do - and it still did it. I dunno, I guess I just can't pour off enough.

Palm oil and sugar are both natural foods.

I was under the impression that the definition we normally go by is a product whose ingredients list is "peanuts".

My biggest concern is trans fats. I wouldn't be terribly concerned to use a product that had a bit of sugar or palm oil in it, but I draw the line at hydrogenated fat.

I think there may be some confusion between "natural" and "pure".

I think you're right in the strictest sense. If you were to give it a Webster's type definition. Unfortunately, the Skippy is going to have to be as natural as I can go, given my digestive difficulties. Just thought the info might be good for someone else in my shoes. Doesn't appear to be too many, though. I'm defective.

Why would you pour the oil out? Other than skewing the macros (not knowing how much actual fat is now in the peanut butter), peanut butter is a fat source...mix it in.

For sure. I don't eat a lot of PB myself but the kind I get does contain palm oil and salt, mainly due to a lack of options. (Aside from trans fats) It's mainly the added sugar I have a problem with. It strikes me as unnecessary - empty calories - but then my philosophy is one of food for function, not for taste.

read the first part of the post. That will clue you in to why I have to pour out the oil.
