Truth be told, once you try our fresh-ground nut butters, you'll never go back to jarred. It’s a bold statement, but we’re shellin’ it out! And we make it easy! We grind our nut butters fresh, in-house so they’re ready for you to grab and go. But, you can also grind them yourself — as much or as little as you like! The grinder and butters are near our Bulk Foods Section and come in:
Organic Peanut Butter
Honey-Roasted Peanut Butter
Cappuccino Peanut Butter
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Remember, fresh-ground nut butters often separate a bit, so you’ll want to mix the oils back in before using. But, there’s no need to refrigerate. Besides, it’ll be gone before you can say “nut bu …,” see?
Peanut Butter Primer
Our fresh-ground, unsalted peanut butter contains one simple ingredient: peanuts. This means you are spreading on the nutrition from 100% peanuts without extra calories from added fat and sugar. Jarred peanut butter, on the other hand, may contain ingredients you are trying to avoid or limit for health reasons, like:
Hydrogenation is the process of passing heated vegetable oil through hydrogen molecules to thicken the oil. Jarred peanut butter sometimes contains partially hydrogenated vegetable oils to prevent separation and keep the peanut butter smooth. But, partially hydrogenated oils contain trans-fatty acids. According to the American Heart Association, trans-fatty acids can have a negative effect on your blood cholesterol level.
The second ingredient in most brands of jarred peanut butter is sugar or other sweeteners. Our fresh-ground peanut butter contains no added sugar because we trust that you love the taste of pure peanuts as much as we do!
