Natural Peanut Butter Is Unnatural

Natural Peanut Butter Is Unnatural

ONE OF THESE PEANUT BUTTERS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS

Aside from the different brands, these are three jars of natural peanut butter right? Well only one of them is actually peanut butter, The Smuckers. The other two, Jif & Peter Pan, are labeled as peanut butter spread.

As far as them all being NATURAL… Did you know that the FDA doesn’t have an official definition for the term. That’s why three jars of natural peanut butter, which should be the same are completely different. It can mean anything not synthetic, which leaves a lot of wiggle room. For example, dirt is not synthetic. It comes from the earth. I’m not saying that the food companies are putting dirt in food. But, you get the point. It really pays to read the ingredient label and not just the marketing on the front.
