What Is PB2?

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

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.

The picture is one I took after making some PB2. Yum!!!

    Thanks for the explanation, I appreciate it! It sounds awesome, I'll definitely have to try it. I'm especially fond of the idea of adding it to recipes and other foods...anything PB flavored is good in my book!

    that's it, I'm going to have to get some because Jenn, j3nn.net is always using it or talking about it in some way.

    Thanks so much for putting this up! That's what I thought, and of course, I haven't gotten to it yet as I said I would.

    Sounds like something new that I'm going to have to try - imagine peanut butter oatmeal pancakes or muffins...I'll have to work on that recipe for the kids.

    Thanks again!!!!!
