If you can get natural, go for it. If that's not possible, look at how much trans-fats is in it. If it's in there, I would try and limit/avoid it.

Fully Hydrogenated Vegetable does not contain trans fat, but partially-hydrogenated oil does. This is important because manufacturers are allowed to list trans fat as 0 if it has less than .5 grams per serving. Depending on how much you use, this can be very significant.

how can i make natural peanut butter?
03-14-2009, 07:21 PM
you can really use just about any good food processor, here is one of the cheapest I found that mentions peanut butter
they also have machines meant specifically for it like this

pretty much the best stuff comes from raw unroasted peanuts, no additives thats the way I prefer it. you can mix in some walnuts, cashews or almonds for a little zing tastewise, or add a little honey and/or salt for flavoring. Its pretty nice solo. If you really want to play with it, you can even add protein powder to it after you've ground it, chocolate goes well.

03-14-2009, 07:41 PM

but i have a dought......the nutrition label says:
total fat: 16 g
saturated fat: 3g
trans fat : 0 g
polyunsaturated fat : 5g
monounsaturated fat: 8g
if you add all that gives you 16g total fat
it is still possible that this peanut butter has a little bit of trans fat and they dont listed?
03-14-2009, 08:04 PM
most countries don't require decimals so it can be rounding.
total fat: 16.3 g
saturated fat: 2.8g
trans fat : .4 g
polyunsaturated fat : 4.9g
monounsaturated fat: 8.2g
would end up the same as your label...

makes sense...to bad we dont have those kind of regulations here

so can i use walnut oil to make my own natural peanut butter?
03-16-2009, 11:24 PM
sorry to come in on this late, but from my nutrition courses in college the rule was that if Partially Hydrogenated Oils is listed at all in the ingredients then it has to have trans fats in it. If it doesn't list this, then you can be sure that it doesn't contain trans fats.
On a side note, I just bought some natural Cashew Butter made with Raw Brazilian Cashews and Safflower Oil and it was awesome! Sorry, I get excited about the little things in life.

but what about
FULLY hydrogenated or PARTIALLY or just HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL does it has trans fat on it?
i say that because my peanut butter says on the front of the bottle no "no trans fat as always per serving"
that natural cashew butter sounds tasty
03-17-2009, 05:01 AM
you could add walnut oil yes. And fully hydrogenated has no trans fat, but if it just says "hydrogenated" you dont know if its fully or partly.
03-17-2009, 04:18 PM
I don't recall ever seeing fully or completely hydrogenated oils as an ingredient. I would just assume that this is their way of saying partially, but don't quote me on that.
03-17-2009, 09:31 PM
I've seen fully hydrogenated oils listed. If it just says hydrogenated, though, that seems to imply "fully" from a grammatical sense, but I wouldn't bet on it.
03-17-2009, 10:21 PM
fully hydrogenated fats are the equivalent of eating shortening. Vegetables don't make saturated fats so they change the oil and saturate it. Pretty bad for the body. If the peanut butter at the store separates it's oils out then it ok.
