nitpick much?


#3

I would say just make sure it is natural. Meaning the only ingredients should be peanuts and maybe some salt. I don't know why palm oil would be in there (probably as an emulsifier). I would just stick to natural PB with just peanuts and salt.


#4

Well, I guess you need oil to make it stick together?


#5

Well, good natural peanut butter should separate. That is how you know it is truly natural. At least this is what I gather from Berardi and some others talking about it. Just stir it before you use it and then keep it in the fridge.


#6

What do YOU think?


#7

You guys should check out Smart Balance's natural peanut butter. They use flax seed oil to keep it together. Every serving has 1 gram of omega-3. Not bad tastes good too and no need for refrigeration.

I LOVE PEANUTBUTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I go to heaven George Washington Carver will be getting a HUGE man hug from myself! The guy was awesome! I eat 10-14 tbls. a day, but now I'm cutting for summer & am only using 1 tbls. chunky Natural kind with the oil on top stuff with my morning blender bomb drink that I make. The Smart Balance brand sucks ass IMO.


#9

Ingredients should only say Peanuts and maybe salt but most likely just peanuts.


#10

I eat Skippy's chunky peanut butter. It is the best! I need to get Peter Pan and JIF and compare the two, because I want to know which is the second best.
