Just in time for those low carb Christmas buckeyes, we were fortunate enough to find Jif Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. Now don’t worry, we’re not turning this into a “natural products” review site. The truth is, if we hadn’t gotten into the habit of checking labels on all new products we see, we would have passed on this one under the assumption that this peanut butter was full of carbs. Natural or not, this peanut butter is low in carbs and is absolutely delicious. It is very creamy and sweet. Whatever magic mixture of peanuts, oils, fats, salt, and sugar was concocted to make this peanut butter taste so great is the work of geniuses.
Seriously, if it weren’t for the lack of massive amounts of Omega fatty acids, this peanut butter would have taken over first place for our favorite peanut butter from Smart Balance. We also noticed that the packaging mentioned that there was no need to stir this peanut butter. On the nutrition label there is a statement about natural oil separation, which seems to be a contradiction. Most natural peanut butters we have tried really needed to be stirred quite often. We’ve been sampling this peanut butter for the better part of a week and have not been tempted to stir it in the least. This peanut butter will make you happy.
Serving size for this peanut butter is two tablespoons. Each serving contains 16 grams of fat, 190 calories, 75mg of sodium, and 5 grams of digestible carbohydrate. On the plus side you will also get no cholesterol, 2 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein! Kick in ten percent of the recommended intake of Vitamin E and twenty percent for Niacin and you’re talking about a pretty good peanut butter. Obviously, persons with peanut allergies should avoid this product.
