Trade Up Tuesday: Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is peanut butter right? Not so fast there. Many of now know that some brands add some additional ingredients. Market Street offers (at select locations) grind your own nut butters. But if you just don't have the time or would like to try something different, consider Krem Peanut Butter. It contains no added Salt, sugar or hydrogenated oil. It is cholesterol and gluten free and an excellent source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated (healthy) fats.

When you compare NuVal scores, Krema Peanut Butter contains less saturated fat and sodium but more fiber and protein. And the best part is it is one simple ingredient: peanuts.
