USA Grown Peanut Butter
Well, it's pretty simple. We take our slowly barrel roasted peanuts and grind them to what we call a perfect Creamunchy texture. No added sugars, preservatives, palm oil (learn more about the issues of palm oil), nothing. Just nuts, the way peanut butter should be! The slow roast and Creamunchy grind are key, because together they create a unique rich roasted taste and almost smooth texture that allows for less oil separation in the jar.
Roasted peanut butter is high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (including oleic acid, the healthful fat found in olive oil) and is also a good source of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein, magnesium, and manganese. Peanuts have also been found to contain the phenolic antioxidant resveratrol, the beneficial compound found in red wine and grapes. Roasting can increase another of peanuts’ antioxidants, primarily a compound called p-coumaric acid, by as much as 22%, making roasted peanuts richer in antioxidants than apples, carrots, or beets. Finally, eating peanuts can also help reduce the risk of developing cancer, as they contain a form of phytosterol called beta-sitoserol (SIT), which is known to inhibit tumor growth. With all that goodness, it shouldn't be surprising that studies show frequent peanut consumption can lower your risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
