Correct me someone if I'm wrong, but I don't think that this would be a low glycemic load food for diabetics. Dehydrated/evaporated cane juice is similar to refined cane sugar, IIRC.

The OP is going to weight watcher's and isn't diabetic, I don't think. The person who said their grandson has Type 1 Diabetes eats natural peanut butter, not the same as what the OP posted. Is that what you were concerned with? The person who mentioned diabetes? I fully agree, but, I don't think this is what they use.

I actually found this in Walgreens not too long ago and bought it. It is actually quite good,...more candy-ish than regular PB, but still darned good. And if I eat the whole jar, I will have only consumed 5000 as opposed to 10000 calories :)

^I think it is sweeter...with a more caramelly texture...

I feel like regular peanut butter is a cross between sweet and salty/savory but Better N peanut butter is deifnitely sweet.

By the way, I have discovered reduced sugar and sugar free jellies. My daughter has tried both with the boy, and says there isn't that much difference in carbs, and the reduced sugar tastes best.

I always stick with the regular, low-fat peanut butter (Jiff, Peter Pan). The phony stuff isn't worth it and never tastes like the real thing to me. There are worse things for you than peanut butter so I'll skimp elsewhere.
