HEALTH BENEFITS

Peanut butter is a naturally nutritious food packed full of goodness. Too often however, companies take shortcuts and fill it with preservatives, additives, emulsifiers, foreign oils, sugar and lots of salt.  Our peanut butter is simple and healthy: we use extra dark roasted hi-oleic peanuts and a sparing amount of organic Marlborough sea salt. Hi-oleic peanuts are a special type of peanut known for their great flavour and high levels (39%) of monounsaturated fats - that's the good stuff, like the type found in olive oil, which has been linked to reducing cardiovascular disease and lowering cholesterol.  
Our peanut butter has been nutritionally analysed and the results show that one 25g serving (about a heaped tablespoon) of our Super Crunchy or Smooth peanut butter will give you the following nutrition towards your
