There’s a brand new product in the marketplace that claims to style similar to peanut butter however with out containing any peanuts!!
Mum of three Rebecca Shaw highway examined the brand new product on probably the most essential of testers – her youngsters! We additionally received the decision from our Wholesome Mummy nutritionist.
Peanut Butter with out the Peanuts?
I’ve very distinct childhood recollections of going to the well being meals store with my mum for our peanut butter and watching nothing however peanuts be crushed and made right into a reasonably unappetizing paste with zero components.
My mum had the fitting concept – don’t introduce youngsters to the world of added sugar and flavours they usually know no completely different! I’m ashamed to say that these best-laid plans didn’t comply with down the road and I’m a Bega Crunchy Peanut Butter lover by way of and thru. I’ve handed this all the way down to my youngsters, who would understandably flip their noses up on the identical pale paste that comes from peanuts alone!
However the brand new WOWBUTTER obtainable at Woolworths claims to style similar to peanut butter, it’s faculty protected and youngsters find it irresistible!
So we determined to take some WOWBUTTER sandwiches to soccer coaching and never point out that the WOWBUTTER was in reality solely plant based mostly, is peanut and tree nut free, gluten free, non-GMO verified and with no hydrogenated oils. Doesn’t precisely roll off the tongue and would destroy the enjoyable! Don’t fear we made positive we’ve got no peanut allergy symptoms on the workforce earlier than conducing the experiment to keep away from any hyperventilating mother or father shows or eye rolls!
When on the fields I might solely power a sandwich upon my obliging son who extra so turned his nostril up at a wholemeal sandwich after being promised a jelly snake on the finish of the session if nicely behaved. He appeared to not discover that it wasn’t the tried and examined Bega crunchy (ceaselessly Kraft in my thoughts).
We managed to get just a few into the lovable sideline siblings they usually all ate them fortunately. None the wiser! My skeptical 8 yr previous daughter took a chew after immense stress and helpfully provided that it tasted like tuna. Hmmmmm.
The mother and father all took a chew after curiosity received the higher of them. How good to have the ability to combine up the lunch packing containers a bit! Bites had been principally met with approving nods, eye raises and optimistic affirmations. I’ve to say I might solely add that there was simply the slightest artificial aftertaste however that was when eaten straight up.
Actually in a sandwich it could be very onerous to inform the distinction. Particularly should you added somewhat honey! A successful combo. With the previous spoon take a look at you possibly can actually discover the refined variations. However the response was higher for the WOWBUTTER than for the Pure peanut butter varieties!
So much may very well be stated for preserving issues easy!
