Welcome to Betsy’s blog! Here, I will share everything there is to know about all-natural nut butters, including their health benefits and ways to incorporate them into your daily diet for optimal nutrition. I am a firm advocate for healthy food that is also delicious, so read on for what “all-natural” really means and five health benefits that come with my tasty all-natural almond butter.
What Is All-Natural Almond Butter?
Almond butter has gained popularity in the last few years, perhaps due to emerging health trends like veganism and gluten-free lifestyles. While these people tend to be very conscious about what’s on the label of their groceries, some fall into marketing traps when they buy “natural” products that aren’t truly made with all-natural ingredients. It’s unfortunate that the word “natural” is often used as a blanket term that lacks meaning, but that doesn’t mean that all-natural nut butters don’t exist.
Here in my kitchen, I only use wholesome ingredients in my all-natural almond butter, including almonds, cinnamon, chia seeds, Himalayan pink salt, honey, sunflower oil, and demerara sugar. I am proud to call my nut butters all-natural because they are all organic, GMO-free, and contain nothing but natural ingredients that provide your body with the nutrients it needs, while also satisfying your sweet tooth. When choosing a nut butter at the grocery store, be sure to check the label for any ingredients that are masked by a “natural” claim or play it safe and choose Betsy’s Best all-natural almond butter!
Nuts are known for their fatty acids, which can sound unhealthy if you don’t know the difference between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Unsaturated fatty acids are natural and are an important part of any healthy diet. Almonds are considered one of the healthiest nuts due to their high monounsaturated fatty acid content and low-to-none saturated fatty acids, which helps reduce the likelihood of high cholesterol by replacing other “bad” fats found in dairy, meat, and junk food. In fact, organic raw almond butter provides powerful antioxidants that help eliminate harmful free radicals and support heart health. Specifically, these antioxidants work together with vitamin E to reduce artery inflammation and help clear the arteries, leading to healthy cholesterol levels and reduced risk of heart disease.
