I finally found some at the grocery store.

Do you all have to stir yours and than refridgerate it so that the oils don't float to the top?

This stuff is rich!

I just bought some last week and did not read the label carefully. After I opening, I threw all the liquid fat in the sink :mad: Now I'm left with grainy peanut butter rather than creamy. But it's still good, right, even without most of the fats?

I found that if you stir it real good and then refrigate it then it stays "together" better. It depends on the brand also. Ive had one that stuck, and one that seperated.

when you talk about natural.....you have to ask yourself "what is natural?" are you natural? just because you take your flinstone vitamins does that make you not natural? is anyone really natural these days when it comes to bodybuilding? these are the questions you have to ask yourself.

BTW creamy peanut butter is mighty good!!! MMMMMMMMMM

*referring to TriplePs post* :scratch: :offtopic: :)
anyway, does anyone know if you should keep it in the fridge after youve got the oil to mix, b/c if i don't, the oil ends up seperating again. ( i have smuckers)

did you put them in the same refrigerator? In my old appartment, I remember the refrigerator temperature knob was all the way up - probably my landlord.

It says on the jar that you need to refridgerate it. It 'retards' the oil.

What is the macro breakdown on natural peanut butter?

Mine has 16 grams of fat, and 8 grams of protein. Don't remember the carbs...

Sorry I am pissing you off - but I never said it would hurt you (in fact many times i told you it IS healthy) I just said that peanut butter is primarily monounsaturated fats not polyunsaturated fat.

it is possible that the manufacturing process removed some carbs.

I don't like to refrigerate the pb cause then it isn't creamy and smooth. SO I'm stuff stirring it up everytime, not that I really mind.

Mine's never creamy and smooth anyway, ...well, doesn't spread over bread well. Doesn't stop me from eating it though

My only question, is why natty PB vs regular? There's not much of a difference folks. Here's my regular pb stats:

Calories: 190
Fat: 16g
Carbs: 7g
Protein: 8g
Sodium: 150mg

As far as nutrition facts, they are pretty much identical, but from what I uderstand it's what the stuff is made of. My natty says "made without hydrogenated oils" I don't know the exact benefit of that, but I know reg PB is made with alot more crap. On natty's label for ingredients, it says peanuts and salt. That's it.

You are correct. While the macronutrient breakdown is the same, natural peanut butter contains primarily monounsaturated fat, and Jiffy/Skippy/etc contain partially hydrogenated oils. Trans fatty acids are evil(This is also why butter is better than margarine.) and it has been suggested they may play a far larger role in America's national obesity epidemic than was previously thought. The FDA is currently altering the guidelines for nutrition labels so that they will be listed separately from other fats.

I understand that, but I think for you and I and other trained, healthy athletes, it doesn't matter much. If I was eating an entire jar of pb every day and obese, I'd make the switch, but for the daily few tablespoons, it just doesn't make sense to me.

how many grams of PB does 1tbsp = ?

You could look at it from that side that it is doing minimum damage in such small quantities but you could also look @ it from the other side that you are taking in such small amounts that you might as well get the most healthy fat (MUFAs) from you peanut butter as possible for that given quantity (which would come from the less processed naty-PB. Once you have naty for a while the regular will taste weird. I honestly am a HUGE fan (I LOVE it and crave it) of the taste of naty peanut butter now.

Definately....the natty takes some getting used to. But I love it now b/c it actually tastes like peanuts. Most of the time i have to pry myself away from the jar.
