Peanut Butter is simply peanuts mashed up into a smooth paste. If you thought it also contained butter, you were wrong but it may contain vegetable oils. It’s best to check the jar you’re purchasing to see what its contents are.

The great thing though is it will contain all the benefits of peanuts. On the downside, it will be high in carbs and calories, but on the plus side, it’s very high in protein, and contains a lot of nutrients.

There are plenty of Peanut Butter benefits. The monounsaturated fats and reservatrol will be beneficial to your cardiovascular system. It is considered that if you eat a portion of nuts about twice a week, it was reported in the respected medical journal, "Obesity", that you are less likely to gain weight than those who do not eat nuts.

Below are several calorie tables covering the different variety of peanut butter that is generally available. Comparable jars with or without salt, will contain the same calories, but be careful of the sodium levels if you purchase a jar with salt.

The reduced fat variety tends to be just 10-15% less in calories. But, unlike some other products, you may wish to stay away from reduced fat peanut butter as it likely contains sugar and corn starch. Check out the nutrition table at the bottom of this page. It breaks down the fat content. Yes there is some staurated fat, but the majority of the fat content is good fat. So why replace the good fat with something unhealthy?
