I use PB2 and really like it. I like that you can control the consistency by adding more or less water. It's great in recipes that call for PB and has way less fat and cals and is easier to measure. I get emails from the company that makes it and I think they are considering a salt-fee version which would be great. In fact, I think I'm on my last jar and need to order some more!

I have the peanut butter and love it, especially on thin cracker or dipped in apples/celery. I have made some protein bars as well, which was so so. I make a thai chicken salad with a thai peanut butter dressing and have used the peanut butter in it instead of regular. After a workout and your body is screaming "feed me" trust me that peanut butter tastes great. The only inconvenience is you have to add a little water to thicken it.

A healthy attitude of graditude and forgiveness.

I order it from the supplier and use it for an additive to my protein shakes from time to time. I LOVE it! It is also awesome in recipes that call for peanut butter but that you want to cut the fat it. Thai dressings is an example. The product was primarily designed to be used as a flavoring at the institutional level, but the protein/carb/fat level is GREAT. I use 1 tbsp in my shakes and it is all I need, and it adds 2 g of protein and only 27 calories (.27g of sat fat, 1.4g total fat). I talked to a rep while at a food convention (our booths were close to each other) and she said the sugar and salt had been added for palatability but that they were working on one that was just powdered peanuts. All they have done is pressed the peanuts to reduce the fat content... there is no chemical additives. To me, this is a great alternative to peanut butter and the very high calorie content it has.

If you want some recipes on how to use it (there are both clean and not clean recipes there), go to www.bellplantation.com (the manufacturer).

p.s. I would not reconstitute it for use as regular peanut butter (it just isn't good), but as a flavoring, it is AWESOME.

Every one has their own idea of what "clean" food is, I know I have an opinion, and I have not read Tosca's book.

In my opinion, powdered peanut butter, is highly processed peanuts with added sugar, which would not be a clean food, in my opinion.

Eating more healthy, nutritious food is going to benefit your health, I do not think that you have to be a fanatic about it. Enjoy your PB whatever the form, in moderation and you should be just fine. I personally love peanut butter, the natural kind, *BUT*, I cannot control myself, and eat the whole jar LOL. So I do not buy it very often, not even once a year.

I have heard good things about PB2 but haven't tried it myself...I bet it would be sooo much easier to use in cooking and baking as well as in protein shakes!!!

I use the natural kind for celery and apples but I thought I'd try the powdered stuff for my shakes because it has like 57 calories for 2T instead of the usual 200 or so for the natural stuff ( I love, love, love peanut butter emoticon )

never heard of it. But small amounts of regular peanut butter is still good for you or the reduced fat kind.

I just found this PB2 Powdered peanutbutter at HYVEE and thought I'd give it a try....then I got it home and there are only 3 ingredients....Peanuts, SUGAR!!, and salt. But then the label says there is only 1g of sugar so do you all think it is safe for the clean eating way? *I'm doing good I don't want to mess this up!!*
