Ooo, I didn't know this.
I buy totally natural peanut only peanut butter, but I hate how it separates, because the first half of the jar, no matter how hard I try to stir it, is all extra-oily, and the bottom half is all dry. XD
As the previous poster said, when the fat is fully hyrogenated it does not contain the trans fat, but it does increase the saturated fat. This is the way the manufacurer keeps the peanut butter consistency so that that fat does not seperate and come to the top, as in "natural peanut butter". While this type peanut butter does contain more saturated fat, it can still be part of a heart healthy diet.
Although i'm not much of a peanut butter lover I purchased and had on occasion when I needed more fat in my daily diet, some reduced fat peanut butter creamy spread (actually Shoprite brand) that contains Fully Hydrogenated vegetable oils. Is this bad or good for me?
