My local supermarket has a health food department that has a peanut butter machine. You grind your own, so you know there is nothing but peanuts in it. I can also buy Adams, which is only peanuts, and Costco's Kirkland brand has only peanuts. I think Peter Pan adds sugar, doesn't it? Of course the peanuts have their own carb.
Yes Peter pan whipped has 3 grams of sugar it is the lowest my mom has found . I love PB and banana sandwhichs
I love peanut butter. Always have. But I only want peanuts. The ingredients should only be peanuts and salt. No hydrgenatesd oils that are in ALL of the major brands. This goes back way beyond my D. Adams is one most easily found. There are other brands in the natural food sections, but they are usually more expensive. Trader Joe's has a number of options, salted, no salt and raw. The ones at TJ also are about the least expensive. The reason for the hydrogenated oils is so the oil will not separate at room temp. You need to stir the true peanut butter and keep it in the fridge. The flavor is better and there is no sugar or preservatives. TJ also has other nut butters like hazelnut, sunflower and almond which you might like. Almond has even less carbs.
Is adams good and does the sunflower one taste good ? does it taste anything like Peanut Butter ?
Adams is good. It was the only one around for years. I prefer the TJ brand now. This type of pb will taste a bit different and they all have a little different flavor based on type of peanut and roast that they use. The TJ brand also has a smoother texture than Adams and the type you grind yourself. I haven't tried the sunflower, but I doubt it tastes like pb. I do buy the almond butter once in a while and it is quite tasty.
I'm with the others on preferring my nut butter all natural. But I much prefer other nuts to peanut such as almond, cashew, hazlenut and macadamia. They are more expensive but when you get used to them you don't want to taste the regular brands like Jiff or Skippy. I also have found the carbs very low impact on my blood sugar and regularly eat more than I bolus for ...now my waistline? That's a whole other story!
Haven't tried that, but I can't eat most soy products. Litterally, one spoonful of something like that would put me down for at least one day almost immediately. I know TJ is not everywhere, but they have some great products for D. You live in the peanut zone of the country. I would think that with a little shopping you could find something at least as good. You may even be able to buy peanuts cheaply enough in your area that making your own could be a great option. Its easy to make, but it is not cost effective here in Seattle.
Skippy Natural has 6 gms of carb no hydrogenated oils and doesn't need to be refrigerated. Plus it tastes great
I use all natural nut butters as well. I am a fan of almond butter. Natural is also much more heart friendly, I also drain 1/2 or more of the natural oils. Trader Joe's is great and very cost friendly when it comes to almond butter etc.
I have tried the whipped Peanut butter but when you spread it on something the air comes out and it shrinks so I would end up using about twice as much so it was really about the same carbs as the reg creamy PB (6g).
