Yep, I use this product all the time, and it's great for those of us with soy issues!

Okay this is what I have come up with ... i erased what i had thought... i like to check out stuff before i post stuff...
I think I was wrong.
Hydrogenated and hydrolized are two differnt things .. and some of the peanut butters were hydrogenated and some were hydrolized. i confused them ... the hydrogenated was rapeseed and cottonseed..
so i was confused and just found one that was neither.
But due to people wanting Organic and natural.. I think that more and more food companys are going to go green and get rid of the trans fats and the wheat that my be used as fillers. just a thought.

I've yet to see a regular peanut butter that is not gluten free. This is something we are *generally* safe with.

I use Peter Pan PB....used it as a kid, and was so happy to find out as a Celiac that it was safe. We have to count our blessings for naturally gluten free foods! :)

ditto that thought - I've not yet seen any peanut butter (or other nut butter) with wheat in it. not saying there isn't one in all the world, just that it's not a high probability. (still, ALWAYS read the ingredients.)

Be careful of Low fat or Fat Free ones....they contain HVP's which are no nos (Hydrolized Vegetable Protiens).

My understanding is the trans fats law is that it can still contain it, but it must be labelled clearly. I believe a lot of companies are changing formulas to not use hydrogenated or hydrolized protiens, but not all of them!

I like Skippy Creamy. My favorite is Smuckers Natural Extra Chunky though! LOL!!!

Dear Everyone,
All Jif peanut butters are safe! They are actually made by Smucker's! I called about them a while back. This includes their Smooth Sensations! I am sad to report they no longer make the chocolate peanut butter, though! It was soooooo good! I grew up eating Jif, and was ecstatic to learn that it is safe! The low-fat version is great when you crave something sweet. It does contail corn protein and soy though.
Sincerely,
NoGluGirl

Do you like/have you tried Nutella? I think it would be similar to chocolate peanut butter. I put it on Redenbacher popcorn cakes and have to discipline myself not to eat too many of them.

Doesn't anyone eat natural peanut butter? It's just peanuts and salt! No sugars, no fillers, no hydrogenation, no gluten, nothing else at all.

It's what I've always eaten since I was little. Nothing better IMHO. Smuckers makes one, as well as Arrowhead Mills and other companies, so it shouldn't be hard to find. Even supermarket chains like that big one with the name that starts with a W has one, though I don't like it because it's not made right. Seems like they add extra oil to get aways with less peanuts. It's easy to tell when the peanut butter is on the thin side.

Haven't you ever simply added cocoa or carob powder to natural peanut butter? To me this tastes quite yummy. A dash of cinnamon adds a nice flavor too. Apple sauce is also a great addition (I recommend the natural unsweetened kind).

Dear BF,
I am not sure where to find Nutella. I heard it is delicious. I miss the Chocolate Silk so much!
I used to eat it with animal crackers! Of course, now I cannot eat those. No more pretzals either. I cannot afford the gluten free ones! Maybe someday! At least the Glutino pretzals are supposed to be good!
Dear RiceGuy,
I have had Smucker's and Arrowhead Mills natural peanut butters. They are good. The problem is, I always have them dry out in the fridge! What can I do to fix that? Any suggestions? All natural nut butters do this! Also, any stirring tips to get it nice and creamy instead of the oil on the top?
Sincerely,
NoGluGirl

Dry out? Perhaps you mean as you get closer to the bottom, there's less and less oil in it, yes? That would also be consistent with having oil on top so much. Basically, you aren't stirring it properly/enough. There's no big secret or trick involved. Just a bit of diligence is all it takes.

When I get a new jar, the first thing I do is CAREFULLY begin stirring a bit of the top. I do not try digging down much at first, as that can easily lead to spilling it. As the oil mixes in, I slowly go further until it has been completely mixed right down to the bottom. An alternative method is to simply put the jar upside down for a few days when you first get it, before putting it in the fridge or stirring. That will put the oil on the bottom of the jar, thus making it easier to stir up. I generally don't do this however, since it gets peanut butter all over the inside of the cover. Letting the jar stand upright awhile doesn't clear it out completely, so it tends to make a bit of a mess.

Stir it before each use. I tend to eat it daily until it's gone, so the oil really doesn't separate much at all. Still, I always stir it some. A knife can go down to the bottom without displacing much, so you can bring up some of the lower contents each time. That will make the consistency quite uniform right down to the last use.

If you do get lax about it and allow it to get dry, just add a bit of any light vegetable oil. I've actually spooned off the oil from a new jar, and added coconut oil in its place, which makes for an extra tasty treat. Plus a nice side-benefit of this is that since coconut oil is solid below 76 degrees, it won't separate :)
