    Re: Almond Butter Vs Peanut Butter!!

    Killuuuuu....nice post da...

    From a nutritive standpoint, you have summarized the differences between both butters very nicely...Really, an informative article...

    I love peanuts in any form, so personally my choice would be peanut butter.......

    But, I would like to add one more point to your article...It is always best to avoid butters (both peanut and almond) loaded with too much salt and preservatives, which is the case with most of the so-called "well-known brands"...So, guys if you love such kinds of butters, your safe bet would be to go for organic ones...Even though we have to shell out a few extra pennies for the organic ones, you are rest assured you are eating yummy butters sans unwanted preservatives and trans fat...

    Cheers....

    Re: Almond Butter Vs Peanut Butter!!

    Absolutely Jeev, I've made the switch recently, because of the calcium. Having a dairy allergy has forced me to find other sources of calcium, and Natural peanut butter has no cholesterol simply because it's not of animal origin. I looked on the jar, no cholesterol or trans fats in the brand we use (Smucker's Natural).

    I don't eat any peanut butter with added sugars or fats. It must be stirred and is a bit softer than Jif… However, love peanut butter and still eat it occasionally, but it's always all natural (just dry roasted peanuts).

    Thatz great KatGal...You have absolutely made a right decision by switching to natural butters......

    Trans fat is the biggest enemy of our generation...So, hope people will soon realize its dangers and make a wise decision like you......So, guys, whatever stuff you may buy, please look out for the ingredient list...

    Cheers.....
