Product Review - MyProtein Peanut Butter

Hey Guys,

As most readers of the website and blog will know I am fan of having quite a bit of good fat in my diet.

Fat is a great think for most people to add into their diet as it can have a positive impact on hormone production, sleep, helping you feel satisfied when dieting and not to mention that most good fats taste pretty damn good!

One of my favourite good fats to have for myself and my clients is natural peanut butter. The problem  with most types of peanut butter is that they are full of all sorts of nasty hidden ingredients that will wreak havoc with any nutrition plan.

This is where MyProteins Natural Peanut Butter comes in.


MyProtein Peanut Butter contains no other ingredients apart from peanuts which is exactly what we want when it comes to adding it to any nutrition plan!

Here is the nutritional breakdown,

Per 100g:
Energy: 2402kJ
Energy: 579kcal
Protein: 29.6g
Carbohydrate: 11.6g
(of which sugars): 5.9g
Fat: 46.0g
(of which saturates): 8.2g
Fibre: 8.5g
Sodium: Trace
Polyunsaturates: 14.3g
Monounsaturates: 21.1g
Also provides per 100g:
Vitamin E: 3.8mg (32% RDA)
Magnesium: 180mg (48% RDA)

As you can see it is high in protein, quite low in carbs as most of the carbs is fibre and high in fat.

The taste of this is fantastic. Easily one of the best peanut butters that I have tried. The taste can be a little dry due to the lack of oil, so I would recommend adding something to it (celery is a great example. Trust me!)

The consistency of the peanut butter is quite runny as it has none of the other junky ingredients that keep other peanut butters a bit more solid. While this makes it a bit harder to eat off the spoon it is fine to add to other recipes, meals and shakes.

The value of this product is insane. To give you an example most people get natural peanut butter from the supermarket which costs £3 for a 300g jar. This is £5.99 for an entire kilo! Well worth the money!


Stay healthy,

Mike
