The all-natural Naturally More peanut butter certainly has a lot going for it on paper: It was named one of the 125 best packaged foods by Women's Health, has no cholesterol or trans-fats, and contains healthy essentials like flaxseed, flax oil, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. On top of these positive facts, the company boasts that its product has 25 percent more protein and 50 percent more fiber than regular brands. Is this the perfect peanut butter? See the product's nutritional information and my review when you read more.
Nutritionally, this is definitely a twist on an old favorite: Beyond roasted peanuts, Naturally More contains wheat germ, flaxseed, flax oil, egg whites, omega-3 and omega-6. The fact that this peanut butter is fortified with heart healthy ingredients might make me overlook a slight taste deficiency, but I can't say that I'd be able to tell the difference between Naturally More and another natural brand. It tasted like creamy, delicious peanut butter — just the way it should be. I can't wait to eat it with my apple slices for a pre-workout snack, which motivates me to work out.
FYI: It is National Peanut Butter Month! If you're a PB lover, celebrate with two tablespoons of your favorite peanut spread!
