Irene introduced me to a healthier peanut butter!

http://www.betternpeanutbutter.com/index.php

I was stocking up for hurricane and the food store was almost completely out of peanut butter. I found this, Better'n, on the shelf and now I love it.

It's fresh peanut butter. They claim to have only 100 claories and 2 grams of fat for 2 tablesoons (half the calories of regular). I love peanut butter and even though many diets say you can have it in moderation, I find the calories just add too much to my daily intake. But at 50 calories for 1 tablespoon this works. What a treat!

what are the ingredients on it 's label?
I buy healthy peanut butter that has just peanuts on the label a trace of salt but it has 95 cals per tablespoon
I would like to know how they reduced the calories and fat they had to add something else ..

I'll stay with my Natty PB as well. Even though it's twice the calories, it's just peanuts and salt, meaning it has a good blend of protein, fiber, and healthy fats...all which is good for satiety. Look at the label on Better'n , the 2nd ingredient is tapioca syrup, followed by cane syrup, rice syrup, refined flour, starch, etc.

Protein: Natural PB: 8g; Better'n 4g
Carbs: Natural PB 5g; Better'n 13g

Basically, Better'n has taken out the healthy stuff and replaced it with cheap carbs, which only begats cravings for more cheap carbs.
