3 Reasons You Should Switch to Natural Peanut Butter

3 Reasons You Should Switch to Natural Peanut Butter

There are endless brands of peanut butter on the market nowadays, and each brand offers a variety of options to choose from. With so many different kinds of peanut butter from so many different brands, shoppers are often susceptible to choosing the “natural” versions big corporations offer, rather than those from healthy peanut butter brands. As mentioned in my first blog post, the term “natural” is often used as a blanket term meaning “less bad for you” than the original product companies sell, making the term devoid of meaning altogether.

When it comes to choosing the healthiest kind of peanut butter at the grocery store, it’s important to compare brands, not the versions they offer. Different companies have different values and practices, which will remain consistent across all of their products. That being said, be sure to choose a brand whose “natural” peanut butter is organic, non-GMO, and only contains wholesome ingredients. Here are a few reasons why you should abandon big-name brands and switch to an all-natural peanut butter.

It’s Better For You

Obviously, all-natural nut butters are healthier than those that are chock-full of sugar, salt, and saturated and trans fats. Ideally, people shouldn’t consume trans fats at all, and shifting from an unhealthy brand of peanut butter to one that only contains wholesome ingredients is an easy way to start eliminating it from your diet. Most big-name peanut butter brands contain high amounts of hydrogenated vegetable oil, which might sound healthy, but is a camouflaged kind of trans fat that leads to high cholesterol and heart disease. You can identify all-natural brands of peanut butter by their “non-GMO” and “gluten-free” labels, as well as a complete nutrition label that has peanuts listed as the first ingredient. Betsy’s Best gourmet peanut butter is non-GMO verified, gluten-free, organic, and contains delicious natural ingredients like peanuts, chia seeds, cinnamon, and honey.

 

 

It Tastes Just as Good

Anyone who has made the switch from unhealthy peanut butter to an all-natural kind will tell you that it tastes just as good, if not better. For many people, the high amounts of sodium and sugar found in big-name brand peanut butter makes them dehydrated and lethargic. Truly natural peanut butter will satisfy your craving in the same way, but with tons of protein, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, and B vitamins in place of trans fat, sodium, and sugar.

It’s Worth the Money

Many people who stick to big-name brand peanut butter do so because it’s significantly cheaper, depending on which kind you buy. But as with any other kind of food, you get what you pay for. Since these brands of peanut butter contain high amounts of trans fat, sodium, and sugar instead of ingredients with nutritional value, they can afford to charge far less for their products. In reality, choosing unhealthy brands for their low prices is like throwing money away because you are paying for junk food, rather than essential nutrients. If you’re going to buy peanut butter, it’s well worth the extra five dollars to buy a kind that is worth putting in your body.

There are many reasons to switch to all-natural peanut butter that is verified gluten- and gmo-free, including the health benefits, the naturally delicious taste, and the incredible bang for your buck. I hope that this blog has helped you realize why switching to healthy peanut butter is worth it, and I’m excited for you to taste mine!
