MMM. delicious. Wow, Sunbutter, where have you been all my life?? This new find is delightfully nutty and crunchy. I really think crunchy is the only way to go when selecting nut butters. I just adds so much extra flavor and texture, as you can see...A little sweeter than I normally like my nut butters, but the sweet and salty combo is out if this world! I compared the nutritionals on this product to my husband's regular Skippy all natural pb, and they were almost identical-- the most outstanding difference being 2 g more fiber in favor of the Sunbutter. Fabulous. Everyone needs more fiber :) Other than that, the Sunbutter contains 200 calories, 16 g fat and 7 g protein. This butter also has a significant DV of Vitamin E (27%), Magnesium (25%) and Copper (25%). Ingredients are minimal: sunflower seeds, dehydrated cane juice, salt and natural mixed tocopherols to preserve freshness.
Note-I had no idea what "natural mixed tocopherols" were, so I looked it up. turns out, tocopherol is an antioxidant related to vitamin E that helps prevent the oxidation of certain food compounds. You can learn more here or here. Fascinating. And it makes perfect sense given the high content of both Vitamin E and copper in the spread.
Well, this was a great way to kick off my Sunny Sunday, and I'm already plotting more ways I can eat this stuff throughout the week (or maybe later on today!).
