SchoolSafe Soybutter

Thanks to SchoolSafe Soybutter for sending me their soybutter to sample. This is a great substitute for kids with nut allergies that love peanut butter. It is 100% safe for kids with peanut and/or tree allergies.

The schoolsafe peanut butter has the texture of non-all natural peanut butter. It is very thick and it doesn't separate the oil from the peanuts (see pic below). I love it. It tastes a bit more sweeter than peanut butter... this is because it has evaporated cane juice added.

Two tablespoons have 200 calories, 15 grams fat, 2.5 grams saturated fat, 0 mg cholestrol, 8 grams carbs, 2 grams fiber, 4 grams sugar, and 7 grams protein.

Ingredients: Non GMO Toasted Soy, Soy Oil, Granulated Cane Sugar, Monoglyceride (from vegetable oil, prevents oil separation) and Sea Salt.

From their website:
Our SCHOOLSAFE SOYBUTTER is actually more nutritious than peanut butter as it is a COMPLETE protein food, containing all 9 essential amino acids, just as do eggs and dairy. Peanuts are not considered a complete protein food because they only have 6 of 9 essential amino acids. In addition to this superior Protein, our SCHOOLSAFE SOYBUTTER also has a significant array of major nutrients such as Vitamin E, Calcium, Folic Acid, Fiber and Lecithin as well as a natural balance of fats necessary for good health, including 1300 mg of the health promoting OMEGA 3 essential fatty acids in each svg. Peanut butter has zero. ALL of these above nutrients play a major role in keeping you healthy through life and preventing disease in numerous ways.

Soy has proven health benefits from childhood through adulthood - helping to prevent heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity and diabetes, menopausal symptoms, helping build, maintain and repair muscles and much much more.
