These Aren’t Your Average Peanut Butters!

Posted by

Yummy yummy peanut butter. Did you know that by eating peanut butter on a regular basis, you add extra health benefits and nutrients into your diet, including protein, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

Besides being delicious, it is known to help individuals lose weight. Several studies from medical news today suggest that eating peanuts and other nuts can help people maintain their weight, or even help with weight loss. Peanuts and nuts in general have the ability to make you feel full.

Plus, peanut butter is an easy way to increase calorie intake. Because nut butter is packed with protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscles, athletes and fitness enthusiasts include peanut butter in their diet. Peanut butter is also great at managing blood sugar levels since it is a relatively low-carbohydrate food that contains good amounts of fats and protein, as well as some fiber. These characteristics mean that peanut butter, with no added sugar, does not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels. As a result, this means it can be a good option for those with diabetes.

When selecting a peanut butter or nut butter product, look for one that contains just peanuts or nuts with few or no other ingredients. Some peanut butter brands will contain other ingredients, such as sugar, salt, and added oils. Avoid these when possible. It is normal for pure peanut butter to separate into solid and liquid form. Just give the container a quick stir and the contents and consistency will return to normal.
