I've gotten a few questions since my last blog, asking me what - exactly - is PB2?
Well, the people that make it say, "Made with USA grown peanuts that are slow roasted and pressed to remove fat. All natural with no additives." Basically, it's a peanut-flavored powder. One jar of PB2 powder is 6.5 oz in weight.
The ingredients are: Peanuts, sugar, salt
2 TBS of the powder is 54 calories, 2.8 grams fat, .55 g Sat fat, 94 g sodium, 3.7 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 4.3 g protein.
2 TBS of PB2 powder makes just over 1 TBS prepared peanut butter. You reconstitute PB2 with just water. The amount you use is personal preference, depending on how thick you want your peanut butter. The powder is also delicious and can be added to yogurt, smoothies and other recipes.
