NOT ALL ALMOND BUTTERS ARE EQUAL.
It's not easy to choose a winner in the almond butter vs. peanut butter debate. Almond butter is lower in saturated fats and higher in fiber and unsaturated fat. Additionally, it contains less sugar and higher amounts of calcium, potassium, magnesium and other minerals. This delicious treat is chock-full of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin and folate. It also boasts large doses of vitamin E and omega-3 fats. However, the almond butter available in stores isn't always healthy. Many varieties pack a lot of sugar, hydrogenated fats, preservatives and synthetic flavors to appease tastebuds of the ever changing food industry in the United States. Keto Butta is determined to let the nutrients and flavor of natural ingredients be the star of the show, leaving preservatives and extra filler ingredients behind.
