Delicious Crunchy Peanut Butter from Elber’s Food Products Located at Santiago City, Isabela, Philippines 3311

A food paste or spread made from ground dry-roasted peanuts. It often contains additional ingredients that modify the taste or texture, such as salt, sweeteners, or emulsifiers. It is popular in many countries. The United States is a leading exporter and itself consumes $800 million annually.

It is served as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers, and used to make sandwiches (notably the peanut butter and jelly sandwich). It is also used in a number of breakfast dishes and desserts, such as peanut-flavored granolasmoothiescrepescookiesbrownies, or croissants. It is similar to other nut butters such as cashew butter and almond butter.

Did you know that peanuts aren’t actually, botanically-speaking, nuts?

They’re legumes. Legumes are the edible seeds or pods of plants. Other legumes include beans, peas, and lentils. But from culinary and nutritional perspectives, they are indeed very much like nuts.

Grind up roasted peanuts into a paste and, voila! You’ve got peanut butter.

It’s fair to claim peanut butter as a good source of protein. And even a small serving also contains a lot of important vitamins and minerals.

In just two tablespoons, you’ll find 8 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. It’s also a remarkably rich source of manganese, niacin, vitamin E, magnesium, and phosphorous.
