Better N Peanut Butter

I picked a jar of this stuff up over the weekend and I just got around to trying it. It is darn good and 85% less fat than regular peanut butter! I got the low sodium version. Only 100 calories for 2 tablespoons.

I am currently on WW and this stuff tastes very peanuty for very low calories.

It is made of peanuts that are ground up and de-fatted.

Here is the ingredients list (I cut and pasted it from their website)
Better 'n Peanut Butter


Ingredients: PEANUTS (AS DEFATTED PEANUT FLOUR AND NATURAL PEANUT BUTTER), TAPIOCA SYRUP, PURE WATER, DEHYDRATED CANE JUICE, RICE SYRUP, VEGETABLE GLYCERIN, SOY FLOUR, SALT, TAPIOCA STARCH, NATURAL FOOD FLAVORS, PAPRIKA & ANNATO, CALCIUM CARBONATE, LECITHIN, VITAMINS E & C (ANTIOXIDANTS).

Sounds kinda nasty to me. How about just eating a smaller amount of regular peanut butter?

i have tried the low sodium peanut butter in the past and it is good but is very dry because it has no oil.

fwiw, that phrase "natural food flavors" can hide a lot of ingredients that many folks either can't or don't want to eat.

My favorite peanut butter is just plain ground peanuts. No added anything. I might buy a tiny container once every couple of months and splurge on a pbj sandwich on my favorite whole wheat bread. Not for me that phony stuff...

My grandson has type I diabetes, and the doctor told my daughter that he could have the all natural peanut butter. I bought him some (he likes crunchy style) and it is delicious.

My problem with peanut butter is that I have to have grape jelly with it.
