Ever wonder why peanut butter hardens at room temperature

No comments

My son loves peanut and almond butter.  I get it from Trader Joe’s.  If you never heard of Trader Joe’s, it’s an organic supermarket.  Very reasonable prices.  Anyway, if you read the ingredients on the organic butters, it’s the nut only. That’s the way it should be. If you read the label on other brands, you’ll see that it contains other ingredients, like hydrogenated oil.  That is actually a hidden trans fat. The label may say 0g, but it’s there.  Hydrogenated oil makes peanut butter harden so it can be stored at room temperature.  I keep organic nut butters in the refrigerator.  They liquify at room temperature.
