Are you ready for the truth about PB2 and Powdered Peanut Butter?

Are you ready for the truth about Powdered Peanut Butter?

PB2 is all the rage, and really it's so bad for you. I really don't get all of the posts I see about people that appear to be healthy adding it to their shakes every day.

PB2 is Not Whole Real Food. Right? If you are going to have a nut butter, wouldn't you want the real deal? They extract through a pretty bad process {I've read all about it and it made me shudder} almost all of the essential monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and then it leaches the vitamin E content out which is fat soluble. Hmmm... see the problem with the nutritional content. And the fat you get in nuts is the good stuff that you want out of them. The company also add a mix of sugar and salt in to make it taste better {everything fatty tastes different without the fats}. With that added sugar, it's for sure NOT appropriate for a Paleo diet of any kind. And on top of that it's not organic. I don't really like peanuts because of the aflatoxins in them - so I really dislike this PB2 product for anyone that is looking for a cleaner way of eating.

What problems can arise from using products like this?


If you suffer from any sort of infertility, then you need your vitamins A, C and E. David Christopher recently talked about the number one reason we are seeing such a rice in  Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and that is TOXINS!!

There was a huge story a few years ago that said:

"Alarming findings from a study on pregnant women and some potentially dangerous chemicals. A University of California, San Francisco study found that dozens of chemicals showed up in the blood and urine of expecting moms. Some of the chemicals like P-C-B's and ones used in flame retardants were banned before the women were even born. Out of the 163 chemicals studied, 43 of them were found in nearly all of the 268 pregnant women tested. The study is published in the journal of Environmental Health Perspectives. It's the first time researchers analyzed chemicals found in pregnant women."

Wow!! So no matter what your gender, what a great reason for a cleanse. No doubt. Wow. So stop adding the toxic load to your body with craptacular foods, and start using the real deal. Real organic foods = healthy happy life. :) End rant.

  1. I've had this stuff once, sampled at the home of a pro-"low fat diet" friend, and it was AWFUL. Thanks for getting the word out about how unhealthy it is.

  2. i see what your saying, but I just want peanut butter taste and all the deliciousness without the fat, carbs, calories. I get that it's not a "whole food" and it goes against Paleo, etc. But since I'm not following a Paleo diet. I'm all for minimizing cals/carbs/fats and still having something insanely delicious that curbs my cravings without hurting my waistline. :)
