View Full Version : peanut butter question.

10-02-2010, 12:57 PM
I recently bought a different brand of peanut butter than what I use to. In this jar there was oil floating around when I opened it. Is that added oil or natural peanut oil. I always buy the natural organic peanut butter.

That's natural peanut oil. If you've been buying natty peanut butter that hasn't had it--and thus required you to stir first--your usual brand probably uses palm oil to avoid separation of the natural oils.

If it's all natural PB, it's the oil from the peanuts. Look at the ingredients, it should say "Peanuts" or "Peanuts, salt".

My suggestion is to stir it all together and keep it in the refrigerator after opening, this will help prevent it from separating again.

Yeah; I have to fridge mine. It's a pain in the ass tho trying to spread rock hard PB on anything lol. Make sure you heat the knife/spoon up first. I usually just hover it over the toaster for a minute.
