Better'n Peanut Butter

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

I bought a product called Better'n Peanut Butter at Sprouts. It has 85% less fat, 40% less calories than pb. And it's lower in sodium.

2 Tbs. 100 calories, 2 g. fat, 95 mg. sodium

I made a sandwich for lunch today on 100% Whole Wheat Bread. For lunch at work with no other choices it's ok. If I was home I would want something else.

I probably won't buy another jar. I don't recommend it. It's not better than peanut butter.

Oh, and it says to refridgerate after opening.

    Sometimes I'd just rather have less of the real thing. On the other hand, some substitutions are just fine or even better, so keep trying them out!

    I bought some PB2 - Powdered Peanut Butter - More than 85% Less Fat. Basically they press and remove the fat. Just just add water. It's okay - but again not better than peanut butter!! However; I suppose if you stopped buying peanut butter and went strictly to this, it would eventually grow on you. :) Maybe - Maybe not! It's from Bell Plantation Tifton, GA. I also got the Chocolate PB2 and I don't really care for that. I've heard people use other things besides water but I haven't tried anything else. I've heard apple sauce and milk.

    Is it in powdered form?

    I bought peanut butter in powdered form the other day but have not tried it yet. They press the oils out to make it lower in fat.

    Thanks for letting us know (those who know what Sprouts is). I will avoid it.

    Have you tried nutella? It is a hazlenut spread with chocolate. It's pretty good and doesn't need refrigeration. It's in the peanut butter section.
