Help! I love peanut butter and now it makes my tummy hurt (all of a sudden!! :(

Monday, November 09, 2009

I don't get it. I love peanut butter and always have. It's not the healthiest thing in the world but it does have some protein and iron. So, here's what has happened over the past two weeks. I ate pb and crackers for a snack and about 15-30 mins. later my stomach was killing me. So, then about a week later I thought no it couldn't be peanut butter must be something else and I did it again. So, then I thought it was the jar. So, today I tried another jar. Nope, still hurts! :( There goes my fall back breakfast of Nature's Own Whitewheat toast with Peanut Butter! :( Ahhhh!!! Hmmm, now to find a new breakfast that is easy, quick, and nutritious.

    This same thing has suddenly happened to my husband. I have always bought Natural Jif peanut butter. About a month ago, my husband thought his stomach pains were caused by peanut butter and stopped eating it. Today he tried a small amount on toast and he is experience stomach pain. Bread has never been an issue and eating it alone does not cause a problem. Could they have changed the way they are making peanut butter? I am going to try calling the Smuckers company for answers.

    No, i'm not eating all natural and that is a really good point. I don't think it's a wheat thing because i ate some bread last night and it didn't hurt. But, I think it could be the sugars, since I have stopped eating most sugar most of the time.

    Are you eating all natural peanut butter? Regular peanut butter has all kinds of sugar and added things that aren't necessary that could be causing your stomach pain.
    Also, maybe you've developed a sensitivity to wheat.... maybe it's the crackers or bread that's causing your pain rather than the peanut butter.
