Superb in protein shakes
I wish it were less expensive – but it’s sooooo worth the price. Very low calorie and only a fraction of the fat of peanut butter – plus it mixes great in a drink.
Way to go BettyLou!
PB2 a better option
Perfect for a PB Addict
Just Great Stuff’s Powdered PB is amazing!! It’s slightly sweeter than peanut butter (at least for me because I favor the natural PB to sugary Skippy), probably due to the coconut additives, but it tastes like peanut butter and has that perfect PB creaminess. If you like peanut butter, but don’t like fat, you will love this!
Organic, tasty, and customizable
PB2 is made with peanuts, sugar, and salt. This is made with organic peanuts, organic coconut sugar (which is supposed to have a lower glycemic index and for the record does not taste like coconut in the slightest), and sea-salt. I’m not certain how much the glycemic index of the sugar matters when it only has 2 grams of sugar per serving (PB2 has 1 gram), but then again I’m not diabetic and I thought it might be a useful thing to point out.
Overall unless you are a strong subscriber to the “Organic over Conventional” debate I’m not sure this product is more nutritious than PB2. It has an extra gram of sugar and a gram less of protein and fiber per serving. Of course this is a huge improvement over normal organic peanut butter let alone peanut butter from any of the major brands. So if the two products are more or less the same nutrition wise purchasing would come down to flavor and price.
This product is a bit more expensive than PB2. Thats probably due to the organic factor and scale. Organic ingredients cost more to produce and more to buy, but also PB2 has a jump start on branding and is in more stores (or at least it seems to be) so its distribution network may run more efficiently, it may be able to produce larger batches at lower costs, and overall its going to be a bit cheaper. So don’t write this product off now and forever because of the price. If you try it and like it support it and the price may come down.
Finally flavor and texture. This product tastes like peanut butter there’s no getting around that. Its rich and almost creamy when you mix it up. It can add a peanut butter flavor to protein shakes, yogurt, muffins, cookies, etc. In short its fully customizable and how you use it is up to you and your preferences. I’ve read that a lot of people have to “learn to like” PB2. I didn’t have that experience, but if you did or are having trouble learning to like it give this one a try. I’m not sure what it is exactly maybe the coconut sugar (which again doesn’t taste like coconut), but it does taste a little different than PB2. I don’t have much of a preference either way and friends that have tried both seem more or less split in their opinions (when they have one).
It tastes great
It can be used in many ways and mixed to any consistency
It uses organic ingredients and coconut sugar (unlike PB2)
But its nutritional stats aren’t quite as good (1 more gram sugar, 1 less gram fiber and protein)
Its a bit more expensive than PB2
I love it, but you’ll have to decide how you weight organic ingredients vs nutrition stats vs price, in any case if you want to replace your normal PB but don’t like PB2 its worth a try
I’m pretty stocked up right now, but I have a feeling it’ll be gone soon.
