View Full Version : What is wrong with my peanut butter?

My peanut butter contains 100 calories for every two tablespoons - about 50% less than most other peanut butters. Each serving has 2.5 grams of fat, compared to about 16g in most others. There are 95 mg of sodium (4% DV), 13g of carbs (4% dv), 2g of sugars, 4g of protein. It has some Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron.

Here's the kicker: my peanut butter is yummy. I haven't done a side by side comparison yet, but I don't mind buying this over "normal" peanut butters.

BUT THERE MUST BE A CATCH. I live in fear of anal leakage, or sudden infant death syndrome, or perhaps good old peanut butter-induced cancer.

"How'd she go, she was so young!" they'll cry at my funeral.

"They say t'was . . . the PEANUT BUTTER."

Here are the ingredients, reproduced exactly as on the label:
Peanuts (as defatted peanut flour and natural peanut butter), tapioca syrup, pure water, dehydrated cane juice, rice syrup, vegetable glycerin, soy flour, salt, tapioca starch, natural flavors, paprika & annatto, calcium carbonate, lecithin, vitamins E & C (antioxidants).

The question I put to you now is: how will my peanut butter kill me?

It will fall from a high shelf onto your head.

While it is true that the peanut butter jar contains one pound (16 oz) of peanut butter, I keep it in the refrigerator a mere two feet off the ground. Thank you for trying, though.

Also, this brings up another warning signal: the jar demands that it be placed in the refrigerator. I have never before kept peanut butter in the refrigerator. Something is fishy.

I don't know, but "dehydrated cane juice" sounds so much worse than "sugar." Then there are those mysterious "natural flavors." Arsenic? Cyanide? Who can say? They say cyanide smells like almonds.. almonds are sort of like peanuts..

Enjoy.

rebecca, I'm glad you like your peanut butter, but that ingredient list makes me sad. I like natural peanut butter (Smucker's) because it just tastes better. Their regular creamy, 2 tbsp, has 16g fat (2.5g saturated) and only 6g carbs (1g sugar). That's 210 calories. They also have a reduced fat version, but the calories are practically the same.

How will your peanut butter kill you? If it's too sticky, it'll lodge in your throat and you'll asphyxiate. If you rub it all over your body, you'll be eaten by bears. If you shampoo with it, it'll seep into your brain. The biggest threat to your health, really, is the Wonder Bread you're spreading it on. Eat it right off the spoon like I do!

Looks like they removed peanut oil and replaced it with water and thickeners and such. So it is a more processed food, but does not look to have anything that jumps out at me. They just put in other viscous fluids in for the peanut oil and partialy hydrogenated vegitable oil(to keep the oil from seperating), normaly in peanut butter.

I'm sorry my unnatural peanut butter makes you sad. It makes me happy because it has half the calories of yours so I can eat twice as much.

Also, thank you for reminding me to add the fact that my peanut butter contains no saturated fat and no cholesterol. 20 of the calories come from fat.


The biggest threat to your health, really, is the Wonder Bread you're spreading it on.

That's a good guess, but I am actually scooping it out of the jar using celery stalks. Further guesses as to how my peanut butter will kill me should focus primarily on the unholy peanut butter and not its means of conveyance.

Interesting. This certainly sounds like a benefit, but surely there must be some evil behind it, or else all the peanut butter companies would do it.

Oh, and another fact for everyone to take into consideration when calculating how my peanut butter will kill me: my peanut butter is smooth, not chunky. I did not see a chunky option.

You can always make it chunky yourself, put some peanuts in the food processor and break them up a bit and mix them in, that is how all chunky peanut butter is made.

As for why everyone doesn't do this, well it is a much more engeneered product and so has many more steps in it so it would be more expensive to produce.

Sadly, checked the nutritional info on the peanut butter (plain ground peanuts) in my fridge. Looks like your butter has less protein (mine is 28% protein), but also less calories... Does yours fill you up as much as 'normal' peanut butter?

The way your peanut butter will kill you is when you find and swallow the one chunk of peanut they missed ;)

The peanut butter appears to fill me up rather well, though it's tough to tell because just after eating it I had a giant slice of cake and a piece of fudge.

On an unrelated note, I think I'm going to barf.

Sounds to me like they have found a marketing gimmick to sell the leftovers after making peanut oil. You know, that "defatted peanut flour" that was previously sold to the pig farmers? The comparably lower protein content is probably due to the dilution of all the additives like DihydrogenOxide, tapioca and other sludge. It sounds about as natural as modern ice cream, what with all those gums and starchs that were NOT in my ganny's recipe.

Hey, If I want to eat gums and starches, I'll buy a bag of Gummi Worms, lots more fun.

I've been using Smart Balance Peanut Butter. It contains "Peanuts, natural oil blend (flaxseed and palm fruit oils), salt, molasses". It still has 200 calories and 17g of fat, but those are broken down into:

2.5g saturated
2g polyunsaturated
12g monounsaturated fats (1000mg of Omega-3)

Plus 6g of carbs and 7g of protein. Complete Nutrition label can be found here (http://www.smartbalance.com/images/nutrition_facts/SmBalPeanutButter.gif). It tastes good, has no transfats, and doesn't require refrigeration.

Does it seperate much?

Does it seperate much?28% protein means if your Pb weighs 16 ounces then 4.5 ounces are protein.

Refrigerate to prevent seperation and (no preservatives) decay and rancidity.

Under normal circumstances you should have no death fears from it.

Very little. I think the palm oil keeps it all together. It specifically says on the label it doesn't require refrigeration. I love the taste of the 100% peanut stuff, but you either have to choose the hassle of stirring forever to reincorporate it or the hassle of trying to spread cold peanut butter. The Smart Balance stuff occasionally gets a little bit of oil that needs to be stirred in, but nothing like "natural" peanut butter.

Yes, I've had that peanut butter! And I can tell you, from experience, exactly how it will end up killing you! (If you are ready to hear this):

You are going to get so hopelessly addicted to this peanut butter, that you will insist on eating nothing else, besides it! You will ultimately die from malnourishment, but your corpse will probably eventually spawn a peanut tree or two.

I've seen it happen. It's not pretty. But I'm afraid that shall be your fate, unless you are immortal like I am.

I know, I somehow feel that because my peanut butter's pure peanuts it's relatively healthy. More than half fat, though, and a good amount of carbs on top of that :D Compared to that, streaky bacon or belly pork is probably fairly lean; not so good with banana, though...and I was wanting to put on some weight anyway :D

I tend to shop in the local market, which predisposes me to go for 'natural' food: the choice is limited to either that or the type of 'bad' unnatural food that is flogged off cheap in market stalls cause the supermarkets can't shift it. I'm sure I could get better unnatural food if I walked to a supermarket...but laziness triumphs here ;) Buying natural foods also means you often don't even get an ingredients label, so no need to bother checking that - and if I'm eating streaky bacon or black pudding, I really don't want to know how much saturated fat, salt etc. I'm getting through :D

In terms of peanut butter, the 'problem' with yours might be if you can eat more of it than the 'natural' stuff - I find that the 100% peanut stuff is rich enough that I can only get through about a dessert spoon of the stuff. If I got your unnnatural peanut butter, would I be able to manage the jar :D

Hm, salmon jerky. Like beef jerky made with salmon?

Dark Chocolate Dreams - peanut butter blended with rich dark chocolate

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl - peanut butter blended with cinnamon & raisins

I know at least one explanation: "Peanut Butter" is neither made from nuts, nor is it butter!

Maybe the manufacturer, then, uses the term loosely, and therefore has a very different caloric content than other varieties.

The Papilionoideae is the largest of the three subfamilies with about two-thirds of all the genera and species of the family.

The majority of the species are herbaceous, although there are some trees :rolleyes: and shrubs, e.g. Laburnum and Gorse (Ulex).

The Papilionoideae contains most of the important leguminous crop species such as the ... Peanut (Arachis hypogaea).
