In stores we have a wealth of various butters, pastes and nut creams. It's hard to find it. That's why I decided to prepare this guide for you.
I often see repeated questions on internet forums and facebook: "What is the difference between peanut butter and nut paste?", "Is nut paste better than peanut butter?"
The product name does not provide any indication. This is due to legal turmoil after the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Case C-422/16 of 14 June 2017:
'Products of exclusively vegetable origin shall not, as a general rule, be marketed under names which, such as the names' milk', 'cream', 'cheese', 'butter' or 'yoghurt', are reserved by Union law for products of animal origin. ' Link to the press release
From 2018 it is forbidden to use the name peanut butter. Manufacturers were forced to use a different name. That's why products now appear on shelves under the names:
They are nut butters under a different name.
It is always worth checking the composition of peanut butter that we want to buy. Once I checked all the jars available in the store and I was shocked what can be found in such a simple product:
Examples of ingredients of inferior butters:
High quality peanut butter should only contain nuts, nothing more. There is no justification for any additions. Peanut butter without sugar and preservatives can easily have an annual shelf life. Therefore, there is no reasonable justification why peanut butter should contain any additives.
Search on the label: Ingredients: 100% name of your favorite nuts, eg Ingredients: 100% bio roasted peanuts.
Peanut butter should not contain salt, sugar and hardened fat, eg palm oil. You must pay special attention to this.
Wondering what butter to buy? The composition of peanut butter is very important, but it is not the only distinguishing feature of peanut butter of good quality. It all starts with the nuts from which the butter is made.
The motto of ecological farmers: "Producing without destroying the Earth, nourishing consumers without hurting" is very close to me. That's why I think it's worth choosing peanut butter from organic nuts.
This is my favorite peanut butter. It is made of roasted hazelnuts. It has a fairly smooth consistency and a slightly bitter taste. Note this butter is not sweet and does not taste like the popular "Nutella". However, this does not change the fact that it is delicious and has a strong taste.
Naturally sweet peanut butter, very delicate in taste. It comes in two versions. Our cashew nut butter is made from raw nuts, so it has a fairly compact consistency, it is not liquid. Butter from roasted cashews is more creamy.
This is my next favorite lasagna butter. It is made by grinding whole almonds together with the peel. Very deep, very almond flavor. There is also a version of shelled almonds.
Peanut butter contains almost 25% of protein, which is why it is a nice high-protein supplement for meals, eg for vegans and sportsmen.
It's the one that you like the most. Try them all and choose your favorite. I especially recommend hazel and almond <3
If you have a strong blender at home, you can try peanut butter yourself. The easiest way to prepare peanut butter at home is because it is easy to buy them already roasted (you will get mush from raw peanuts instead of creamy butter). Put a handful of nuts into the blender so that they cover all the blades and blend to a creamy texture for a few minutes.
To prepare hazelnut butter, you must first taste them in a dry frying pan. Roast them until you feel a pleasant nutty scent. Then cool the nuts to room temperature and blend like peanuts.
Almond butter and tahina is a little harder to prepare. The key here is the degree of roasting almonds / sesame seeds. They can not be too weak or too badly roasted. Then the butter will not come out creamy. The only way is the trial and error method to get the perfect degree of roasting.
Bardzo dobry artykuł. Dla osób będących na keto: która masa orzechowa ma najwięcej tłuszczu i najmniej białka? Jest takie? Pozdrawiam serdecznie!
Replied by : Michał Pelc On 2019-10-25 Dzięki! Kokosowa i laskowa będą najlepsze pod tym względem. Kokosowa ma 71 tłuszcz / 7 białko. Laskowa 67 tłuszcz / 11 białko. Na drugim końcu jest z orzechów ziemnych i sezamowa, mają prawe 25% białka :)
