Have you ever thought about what is in your peanut butter? The obvious answer would be peanuts, right? Well take a look at the label. Chances are, if you're not deliberately buying a natural peanut butter, it will be filled with sugar, salt and hydrogenated oils.
Peanut Butter is made by grinding up peanuts. This combined with it's natural oil, creates the most delicious spread. Let's keep it simple! Cut out the unnecessary stuff and bring it back to the basics.
For example- Kraft Peanut Butter Ingredients: Select roasted peanuts, soybean oil, corn dextrin, sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oil, salt. Everything after peanuts is just not necessary- and is added to give it a longer shelf life and more "flavour".
Be wary- even if labels claim to "natural", ALWAYS check the ingredients to make sure!!!!
