Betsy’s Best Offers the Finest “Free-From” Food

The “free-from” trend has been gaining steam in recent years as more and more Americans continue to be affected by food allergies, food intolerances and chronic diseases. The market is shifting toward greater food transparency as consumers are asking companies to explain what’s in their products, the rationale behind each ingredient and how products are made.

Rethinking classic seed and nut butters, Betsy’s Best® has added unique flavors and superfoods including cinnamon, chia seeds, and cardamom, has committed to Non-GMO Project Verified certification and keeping palm oil out – a controversial ingredient that appears in a number of other nut butter brands. 

“After years working as a Registered and Licensed Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, I know that it’s hard to find ‘free-from’ foods that tick all the boxes: health, taste, and convenience,” says Betsy Opyt, President, CEO and Founder of Betsy’s Best. “The Schaumburg GFAF Expo offers an amazing opportunity to show the Chicago area just how exciting nut and seed butters can be while still being nutritious, kid-friendly, and delicious,” she adds.

Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Almond Butter was recognized in October 2016 as the first recipient of the ChefsBest Quality in Craft Award in a blind taste test by an expert panel of Certified Master Tasters.

Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters are available online at and in leading retailers including Kroger, Whole Foods Market (Florida), Bristol Farms, Ingles Markets, Vons, Ralph’s, Lowe’s, City Market, King Sooper, Fred Meyer, Harris Teeter, Wegman’s and other natural, organic and specialty food stores; and through distributors including UNFI, KeHE, Haddon House, Gourmet Merchants and others. The company has expanded from 58 stores at the beginning of 2016 to over 2,100 stores in 39 states today. For wholesale inquiries contact, tel888.685.8292.

This is a very difficult quality to achieve consistently. Flavor is something Betsy values because she wants eating to be an enjoyable and exciting experience, not boring and dull.

5 Reasons Why You’ll Love Our Gourmet Nut & Seed Butters

Fall in LOVE with Betsy’s Best

It is truly love at first bite as you dip into your first experience of Betsy’s Best.  The taste and texture are like no others.  And as you lick your spoon your mind is already spinning around the thought of the next experience…and the next….and the next.  We always like to say “your first experience won’t be your last,” and you will be forever a fan of Betsy’s Best.  That is why we say our butters are “Food to Fall For” because it feels good to fall in love with something so healthy and delicious!!!

Through the years we have heard many testimonials of what people love about our butters.  Our founder and creator, Betsy Opyt RD, LD/N, CDE, put pen to paper to distinguish what she loves most about her gourmet butters and why she fell in love and is happy to “spread” the joy to others!  Here is what she has to say:

5 Reasons To Love Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut And Seed Butters

#1 Better Flavor, Better Ingredients, Better Nut Butters!  Sure there are a lot of nut butters on the market, but why be the same?  My goal is to make something better!  After all it has to be good enough to serve to my family….and I want it to be good enough to serve to yours. That is why every jar is loaded with superfood ingredients and it is why we are GOURMET!

#2 Integrity– I hold a high standard for anything I create.  I use a clear label on my jars to prove that there is nothing to hide.  There is a transparency in my company, and I have pride not only in what I have developed, but also in what the brand stands for.

#3 Innovation– I want people to think outside the box when it comes to my gourmet nut and seed butters.  Sure they can be used as a spread, but there are so many other applications for this unique butter!  It can be used to enhance any recipe…in fact I have over 200 recipes with nut butters on my website that you can check out for inspiration!

#4 Eating Shouldn’t Be Boring–  I don’t like boring….nor do I like boring foods.  I have always been the queen of creativity, especially having a mom who is an artist.  I lucked out with the creativity gene but my art is food!

#5 For the LOVE of Good Food!  As a dietitian I love to see people invest in their health.  I witnesses the food industry disguising and hiding unhealthy food ingredients that make healthy eating confusing.  I am tired of the food industry using cheap ingredients to make a healthier bottom line.  I fight for quality, and that is why we are “gourmet” and the flavors are so pronounced in my line of butters.  I try to stay as true to nature as possible and refuse to add anything that will cheapen my products.  I want the consumer to be as proud of what they are eating as I am of producing a “good for you food.”

May your Betsy’s Best experience be one to remember and enjoy every bite knowing your butters were made with love!

Healthy Regards,


Why is Himalayan Pink Salt Better For You Than Regular Salt?

Why is Himalayan Pink Salt Better For You Than Regular Salt?

We didn’t choose Himalayan Pink Salt for our Betsy’s Best products just because of its pretty pink color. There’s a reason we season our products with this beautifully colored crystal!

Why is Himalayan Pink Salt Better For You Than Regular Salt?

Himalayan Pink Salt is known as the purest salt on earth. In fact, it’s been protected deep within the pristine Himalayan Mountains for over 250 million years! Although it has the same sodium content as table salt (meaning it’s no better for blood pressure levels) Himalayan Pink Salt has a few key things traditional table salt lacks:

  • Nutritional benefits
  • Superior texture and flavor – all of which are thanks to the way sea salt is extracted from the earth.

Unlike Himalayan Pink Salt, after traditional table salt is mined from deposits in the earth, it’s heavily processed and stripped of all its minerals. “Anti-caking” agents are then added to prevent the salt from clumping together. On the other hand, Himalayan Pink Salt requires very minimal processing, which preserves the salt’s natural texture, flavor and 84 nourishing minerals.

Why Betsy Chose Himalayan Pink Salt For Her Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters

The main reason Himalayan Pink Salt has graced Betsy’s Best products is because of its minimal processing; this savory salt remains more coarse and flavorful than traditional table salt, and in turn, is more satisfying to the taste buds. Himalayan Pink Salt is the perfect pair for the sweet flavor of Betsy’s Best. The combination of salty and sweet makes quite the treat!

Now you know how much thought went into choosing the perfect salt for our nut & seed butters. Himalayan Pink Salt isn’t just delicious, it’s nutritious too!
