If you love peanut butter – its taste and texture, but not the fat and calorie profile – you must check out PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter from Bell Plantation.
Powdered peanut butter? I know, I was skeptical too. But then I saw it endorsed in CSPI’s Nutrition Action Healthletter, so I gave it a shot. And folks, rest assured: this is no astronaut food.
By pressing slow roasted peanuts – PB2 ends up with 85% less fat and calories than traditional peanut butter. You simply mix 2 Tbsp of PB2 with 1 Tbsp of water. Stir until smooth. Voilà!
It’s PB, but without the pain in the B of those extra calories…
I bet you’re wondering: does 85% less fat and calories mean 85% less nutrition?
Quite the opposite: in a 2 Tbsp serving you get:
- 45 calories
- 1.5 grams of fat
- 0 g saturated fat
- 94 mg sodium
- 5 g total carbohydrate
- 2 g dietary fiber
- 1 g sugar
- 5 g protein
That’s the same amount of fiber you get in a 200 calorie 2 Tbsp dollop of the real thing. Not bad for something that looks, tastes and feels like real peanut butter!
