    hi,
    Everywhere i read, people consume Natural Peanut butter in their diet.. why not simply 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.

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

    I love almonds and marzipan, but i have to say almond butter left me a bit dissapointed. I do like how it's a lot easier to spread than natty peanut. Gonna try cashew next. Food network is turning me into a bit of a cullinary snob, lol

    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?

    Almond butter is so so, but I guess cashew butter is the real amazing one. I tried pumpkin butter because it was high in protein, and it tasted so poor I'm actually about to throw out the last quarter of the bottle. Next time, if I want more protein I'll just take an extra bit of whey

    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.

    2 a month is weak. Really weak.

    When bulking I usually go through 3 a week.

    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)?

    Maybe maybe... but the real problem is it looks too damn tasty ...I don't think I could stop at just a tablespoon. ...if THAT happens then I know I'd be in trouble.

    Be careful - Power Butter massively failed label claims a few years back.

    GIANT makes one that is superior, IMO.

    But...your profile says 190...you mean, maybe profile stats aren't accurate and can be changed to say anything?

    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.
