I buy ones that are in the refridgerated "health market" section of my grocery store, either Old Home or Parker's. I like them already refridgerated becuase the oil is already stirred in. You do have to store the in the fridge. Though probably the best in terms of health are ones made from Valencia peanuts, like Arrowhead Mills, as Valencia peanuts tend to be less likely to be contaminated by aflatoxin.

I think the best way to get no sugar is to go to the natural foods store--Sprouts or Whole Foods or something like them, and get the store-made stuff. It contains only peanuts.

I happened to see a new one today (new to me, at least.) It seems to be made by the Smuckers company, but it's called Adam's. They had both stir and no-stir versions. Ingredients: peanuts, salt.

Now, I haven't opened it yet, so can't tell you about the taste. Peanut butter is like a drug for me, so we'll see how I do having it in the house with me!

I just buy Adam's or you can blend some up at the supermarket in their grinding machine (they offer peanut and cashew). No sugar, no additives. Peanuts and salt.

I second Mitzoom choices of Parkers or Old Home. I prefer the Parker's but cant find it any longer in my area. I like these brands because the are smooth and creamy. I didnt like the Smuckers because it has a crumbly texture.

Peanuts (your choice) 1 tbsp peanut oil, EZ sweetz or stevia to taste. Whirl it up in a food processor and store in the fridge. I don't shop at fancy stores and I don't like any of the brands I've come across in my neck of the woods. So I just make my own.

I admit mixing the oil well in the Smucker's was always a challenge!

I would definitely buy this if I still ate peanut butter. Same ingredients as Smucker's. I never saw it at Publix when I used to buy PB.

Wow, I didn't know it was additive-free. I should get some next time I go to Costco.

Thanks so much for letting us know. What is the cost of the 2-pack?

Has anyone tried Costco's Betty Lou's™ Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter? I just saw it online but couldn't find the ingredients list. It has 5 total carbs per 2 -tbsp serving and 1 gr of carbs in fiber, so 4 net carbs per serving (pretty much the same as Smucker's organic)

12 Jars – 6.35 oz. each

15 Total Servings per jar

I just buy Smucker's creamy peanut butter. It is kind of a pain to have to stir, stir and stir to get all the oil mixed in, but I refrigerate it after that. It's not creamy like Jif, but I don't mind the texture. I love peanut butter

Smuckers natural has two ingrediants. Peanuts and salt.
Because it's not processed with vegetable oils it will separate.
This is fine by me. I pour off the exess oil and add a littel evoo to keep things moist.
Works very well, tastes great, and is healthy.
I love to experiment with different ways to enhance my peanut butter.
This week I'm adding curry powder and tahini...gives it a nice zing.

Here's a truck to stir the oil into natural nut butters:

Store the jar UPSIDE DOWN for a few days before opening. The oil will work it's way though the nut butter and be on the bottom of the jar when you turn it right side up again to open it, so it won't slosh around. And since its made its way through the nut butter, it's much easier to stir in (I use a regular silverware knife to stir).

Store the mixed up nut butter in the fridge to keep the oil mixed in. At room temp the oil will rise back to the top.

Related to this conversation: I think that the chunky natural pb tastes more like regular pb than the creamy version. And when I buy a jar, I open it and stick a table knife in it about 10 times, then close it up and turn it upside down for a few days. Makes it easier to mix, as Janknitz above said. And then I store it in the fridge.

That was precisely my issue. Mixing the Smucker's was next to impossible once it was refrigerated.

Great tip, Thanks I will keep this in mind in case I have to buy Smucker's again.

The Parkers is two ingredients as well and it does not seperate like the smuckers. Any idea why? Maybe the packaging? Glass jar vs plastic tub.

It's because it is already stirred up by an industrial mixer then refridgerated. Smucker's and similar will not separate (much) if you refridgerate them after opening and stirring - but might a little because I doubt you arm has the strength of an industrial mixer. Last time I bought some almond butter off the shelf and had to stir it myself it was like a 20 minute project. I would rather buy the stuff with the oil already stirred in, like Parker's or Old Home, and save myself the time and effort.

That said, I just ordered some of Justin's Nut Butter Classic Peanut Butter from Netrition to send to my mother's house where I'll be for two weeks. I have some of their almond butter and it's good. It is shelf stable and does not separate, so I assume the peanut butter is the same. It does have added palm fruit oil. Ingredients: Dry roasted peanuts, palm fruit oil*,*Sustainably sourced palm fruit oil.
