Why Natural Peanut butter?

Natural peanut butter only has 1 ingredient, peanuts (and maybe some added salt). The other normal peanut butter if processed and really has no nutritional value compared to the natty version (thats why you notice the oil separation between the two).

OCC is right on the money.
Also, the lack of hydrogenation is a draw for many, as well as the lack of added sugars.

Yea I forgot to add because Natty PB is de-friggen-licious

I recently got some almond butter, it's cool, but I have to get used to the taste.

EDIT: and for the OP, to sum up what other posters have mentioned, there's usually no sugar added, little to no oil added, and it's not hydrogenated. Also since the oils seperates easily, you can pour it off for calorie reduction if you don't mind sacrificing some texture. Or, you can replace the excess oil with things like flax seed oil, etc. If you're wondering what the deal is with hydrogenated oils, companies pass hydrogen through oil to make it solid at room tempurature. Unfortunately, that helps it remain a lot more solid in your arteries too. it's like eating bad cholesterol and not even getting the possible benefit of testosterone
conversion that real cholesterol can achieve. My question is, WTF are hydrogenated oils doing in the margarines that advertise cholesterol improvement on the packaging?

I eat Natty PB throught the day daily. Love the stuff. There are probably some who claim they couldnt live without it.

I have a jar at work, a jar or two at home a jar in my gym bag and a jar in my car.
I go through over 2 jars a month.
Also for those that eat teddie brand, I actually work right across the street from their facility. Every morning when I get to work I smell the roasting peanut mashing goodness. It's amazing.

I like it, they sell the 1lb jars at vitamin shoppe + gnc for $8. so a little pricey, but not all bad to try it out. The flax adds a little bit more texture than a smooth peanut butter, but not crunchy. its good enough that I have sat down with a spoon and eaten it from the jar not on a sandwich

I don't think that 4g worth in conjunction with that much fiber, protein + fat causes much of an insulin response

Someone once said that the protein from peanuts (all nuts) is locked in a collagen matrix of sorts and cannot be absorbed. Any truth to this? What is the BV of nuts (compared to say Egg that has a 100 score)?

Be careful - Power Butter massively failed label claims a few years back.
GIANT makes one that is superior, IMO.

Just got back from Whole Foods and found a fun Nut grinder to make your own nut-butter. Talk about natural. Thought it was cool and got some fresh ground PB and Almond butter.

Curious about all the talk about almond butter, I recently bought some and must say it's so delicious I will never buy peanut butter again.
