So you’re on the keto diet and you love peanut butter, I mean who doesn’t love the delicious taste of creamy nuts in their mouth? Lets deep dive into the world of peanut butter so you can pick the best one that fit your keto macros.

Natural vs unnatural?

So normally I’m not a stickler when it comes to the title “natural” on food packaging, it tends to be more of a marketing scheme to get more money out of your pocket. But in the case of peanut butter it absolutely matters. When you buy brands like Justins or Adams you tend to get exactly what you pay for .. real peanut butter. Brands like JIF and Skippy are brands I would stay away from, due to added ingredients and added sugars.
