What's the deal with powdered peanut butter?
America loves its rich and creamy or crunchy jar of peanut butter,
then along comes the powdered stuff. Is this a game changer?
The answer is yes ~ with a few caveats.

If you're a prepper who's addicted to peanut butter, then you
should consider stockpiling powdered peanut butter and we'll tell
you why, but first... Did you know the average American eats
nearly three pounds of peanut butter annually? By the time a kid
turns 18 years old, he or she has consumed nearly 1500 peanut
butter sandwiches, according to the
Texas Peanut Board, the
oldest agricultural commodity board in the state.  

  • How much peanut butter (or peanut butter powder)
    should you stockpile? If your family eats peanut butter,
    then you'll need to stock 3-lbs. per person for a one-year
    supply. That's three jars of Adams peanut butter, pictured
    right, per person.

Why stockpile peanut butter powder?
There are loads of reasons to stock peanut butter powder, along
with traditional peanut butter in the prepper's pantry.

Reason #1: Peanut butter powder has a long shelf-
Peanut butter is among the most requested items by food banks
in part because it is an incredibly shelf-stable product. Peanut
butter powder has reduced oil content, so it has a long shelf life.

The peanut butter powder with the longest shelf life is packed in  
#10 cans.

  • Honeyville Farms Powdered Peanut Butter, pictured right. In
    a #10 can, this peanut butter powdered lasts 10 years
    unopened; however, this peanut butter powder also includes
    some unsavory ingredients such as soy lecithin, sodium
    caseinate, dipotassium phosphate and mono and
    diglycerides, which extends the shelf life. It's a popular
    peanut butter powder none-the-less getting 4.3 of 5 stars.

  • Nutristore Peanut butter powder, pictured at the bottom of
    the page, is the healthier option as it has just three
    ingredients: roasted peanuts, sugar and iodized salt.
    Nutristore Peanut Butter Powder is made from the highest
    quality peanuts and lightly roasted and naturally processed.
    This peanut butter powder is low in fat and more shelf
    stable than other higher fat peanut flours.

That peanut butter powder lasts longer than traditional peanut
butter is the primary reason to stockpile, but there are many
other reasons.

Reason #2: Peanut butter powder has less fat.
Peanut butter powder, such as PB2 peanut butter powder has
85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter, and with no
additives. The secret is that they first slow roast then press the
peanuts to remove the fat and oil. The ingredients of PB2 are
simply: peanuts, sugar and salt.

Mind you that fat can be a good thing, especially in crisis, but it's
good to know that you can stockpile a healthy food source in your
pantry to help you with your current weight management goals.
Remember that food in the pantry is good for personal crisis,
such as job loss, as well as for emergencies.

Reason #3: Peanuts are not genetically modified.
The National Peanut Board says there are no genetically modified
peanuts on the market today. While peanuts are not yet
Genetically modified, it doesn't mean that there are no GMOs
lurking in your product. If you have an organic peanut butter
powder with cane sugar and salt, then you can rest assured that
it's not GMO . It's the other ingredients, such as genetically
modified beat sugar that could make it GMO.

Rest assured that
Legacy Premium peanut butter powder,
pictured right, is no genetically modified ingredients. Not only is
it NON-GMO, but it was voted best tasting. Legacy Powdered
peanut butter will last up to a 15 Years.

Reason #4: Peanut butter powder is versatile!
More versatile than traditional peanut butter, with the powdered
stuff you have more options:

  • Have a smooth sensation. Add the peanut butter powder to

  • Stir into oatmeal. Boost your oatmeal flavor and nutrition
    with the nutty goodness of peanut butter powder.

  • Powder up your pancakes! Go nuts and add peanut butter
    powder to your pancake mix.

  • Enhance the nutrition and flavor. Try reconstituting peanut
    butter powder with almond milk for a richer and creamier
    peanut butter.

  • Dip into or sprinkle on apples.

  • Be a smart cookie! Bake the PB2 peanut butter powder into
    your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe.

  • Sprinkle on popcorn. Go for a trifecta of popcorn flavors. In
    your food storage you likely already have ranch powder and
    cheese powder, now when you cozy up for a movie, you can
    give peanut butter powder a go! Try the PB powdered cocoa
    for a savory and sweet idea.

  • Make flour-less foods. Great for gluten-free diets, peanut
    butter powder can enhance your recipes.

Reason #5: Peanut butter powder is nutritious!
While it's true that peanuts are tasty and nutritious, they aren't
really nuts. Peanuts are legumes, such as beans, lentils and
peas. That's good news because they won't go as quickly rancid
as nuts. More importantly on the topic of nutrition, peanuts have
29 essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutirents and
antioxidants," according to the Texas Peanut producers.

Two tablespoons of peanut butter provide:
  • 200 milligrams of potassium
  • Fiber

Peanut butter is nutritious, but peanut butter powder is more
nutritious because of its simple ingredients list (peanuts, sugar
and salt). Peanut butter powder won't have hydrogenated oils,
like some peanut butters.

Choosy preppers, don't choose Jif and here's why:
Jif's ingredient list also includes fully hydrogenated vegetable oils
(rapeseed and soybean), as well as mono and diglycerides.

You won't find that in peanut butter powder.

Reason #6: Peanut butter powder helps diabetics.
Peanut butter powder is an ideal food for people with diabetes
and even better for people prone to diabetes to help prevent
diabetes. Why? Harvard Medical School proclaims that, "
butter in their diets are less likely to develop heart disease or
type 2 diabetes than those who rarely eat nuts."

Reason #7: Peanut butter powder can lower risk for
heart disease.
Peanut butter helps reduce LDL cholesterol and lowers risks for
heart disease, according to the
Harvard Medical School, and
peanut butter powder is no exception. This is true unless you eat
too much.

The Harvard Medical School warns that too much can lead to
artery-clogging atherosclerosis, an underlying cause of
cardiovascular disease. So, remember moderation is key if you
have higher than average risk of heart disease.

Reason #8 Peanut butter powder is gluten-free!
Preppers with gluten intolerances will appreciate peanut butter

If you love peanut butter, then you now have more reason than
ever to stockpile it.With all these good reasons to try peanut
butter powder, why wouldn't you stockpile it?

There are some reasons NOT to stock peanut butter
Not everyone appreciates peanut butter or peanut butter powder.
While peanut butter powder is an ideal food storage item for the
prepper's pantry, it might not be right for you:

  • Peanuts are an allergen. Peanut allergies are a concern,
    especially for preppers who have young kids.

  • Peanuts may contain cancer-causing aflatoxin. If you
    have cancer, then you should avoid peanuts and peanut
    butter, particularly if you have or are susceptible to liver
    cancer. Aflatoxin, a family of toxins produced by fungi, may
    be found on infected crops such as peanuts, as well as
    cottonseed oil, corn, and tree nuts, has links to cancer.

More facts about peanut butter:
  • Wisconsin is the largest producer of peanuts in the United
  • Two presidents were peanut farmers (Thomas Jefferson and
    Jimmy Carter).
  • March is National Peanut Butter Month (and November is
    national Peanut Butter Lover's month)!

Happy endings...
Now you have good reason to stock peanut butter powder!  If
you're addicted to peanut butter, then stockpile peanut butter
powder and enjoy.
