Peanut butter

My dad shops at tesco/morrisons, and i asked him to pick me some peanut butter up and responded ' what kind' and i didn't know, i know i want the healthy stuff obviously.
 
I was just wondering anyone has any links or names of the peanut butter they buy, which is healthy, from morrisons or tesco's.
 
cheers..

    Yes Whole Earth is prob one of the healthiest choices, that you could find in a normal supermarket as opposed to a health food store.

    that would be the one, can get crunchy and smooth ofcourse

    ior there is this one too, which I like

    https://www.auravita.co...ducts/AURA/NAST12880.asp

    They are both natural and dont have any processed **** in them, just peanuts, salt, and the whole earth has a little Palm oil I beileive, the other doesnt have oil added.

    Why are they better?

    Can you buy any almond spreads, and, if so, do they taste as good?!

    PB is high in omega 6, and you can make almond butter yourself. ROast the amonds and blend the hell out of them in a food processor with a blade attachment and be careful, the stuff is like crack cocaine!

    Is the omega 6 not so good because of the omega fats ratio thing?

    You are tempting me with that almond butter - do you have to add anything to the blended almonds? (Sod it, I'll cut out the middle man and eat marzipan)

    No, when you roast the almonds they release their fat easy enough. Just keep scraping the sides down and process it for around 10-15 minutes.

    OK. For how long should I roast them?

    Thanks for your help.

    My brain is working slowly and I seem only to be able to think of one thing at a time.

    What temperature and how thinly spread?

    I nearly went to Lufbra Uni as well!

    I think H&Bs do stock Meridian, most good health food stores should.  Some supermarkets may have it if they have a well developed 'health food' section.
