A Few Frequently Asked Questions...Answered!
If you are new to the world of all natural peanut butter, or to Nut Butter Nation, you might have a few questions. We are here to help! Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive. We hope it helps!
Why is there oil on top of the peanut butter?
Great question! The oil in natural peanut butter rises to the top of the jar. This is called separation. This occurs naturally. The reason the peanut butter many of us grew up with doesn't separate is because there are added fillers and chemicals that keep it mixed together.We won't ever use any additives or fillers so you will always see some separation. Quick tip. Not only can mix the peanut butter each time you open it to help with separation, you can also store the jar upside down! This will keep the oil more thoroughly distributed.
Do you need to refrigerate Nut Butter Nation Peanut Butter?
You do not need to refrigerate our peanut butter. In fact, we think it tastes better when it is at room temperature! If you prefer the consistency to be a bit thicker, you can definitely stick in the fridge, but don't feel like you have to. Our peanut butter will last 9 months at room temperature but we don't think it will take you that long to eat it!
Do you use palm fruit oil as an ingredient?
We do not use palm fruit oil in our peanut butter. Though we don't think there is necessarily anything wrong with palm fruit oil, the jury is still out as to whether it is ok for us to consume and there is plenty of controversy surrounded the nature in which it is harvested. At least for now, we would rather err on the side of caution and not use it as an ingredient.
Do you all ship internationally?
Currently we do not ship internationally. We are working to get that setup but right now we can only ship to the continental US.
Why does your peanut butter cost more than traditional peanut butter?
Our vision was to take a simple food we all love, peanut butter, and make it healthier and more flavorful. To do this, we use the highest quality all natural ingredients that we can find. Those ingredients cost more, but they are the very reason we exist. We hope you love the taste of our peanut butter, but we also hope you know you can trust us to use only all natural, healthy ingredients. The end result is a peanut butter that might cost a bit more, but tastes better and is better for you.
