Both the Smooth and the Crunchy varieties are made from 100% highest quality almonds – and nothing else. The nuts are lightly toasted and stone-milled to a fine paste. They differ in texture only. While the Smooth contains just the paste of grounded almonds, the Crunchy is mixed with bits of broken nuts, adding highly palatable “crunchiness” to the taste. Each jar contains 170g.

Culinary Use

In general, Almond Butter can be used wherever and whenever one would otherwise use peanut butter. It does have, though, a very distinctive taste quite different from peanut butter (for more about the differences between the two from the nutritional point of view see below). It is fabulous on its own, spread on freshly toasted bread. As the product is made of 100% almonds, without any additives whatsoever, you may wish to add a pinch of salt and/or some drops of honey, maple syrup or sugar to suit your taste.

Smooth Almond Butter is great for making Almond Drink. Just use one or two teaspoons in a glass of water and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer. It can be used as an ingredient in salad dressings or as an original dip (prepared like Tahini). Both varieties can be used to enhance stir fries and oriental dishes such as Thai chicken curry and chicken satay. For desserts and sweet treats, Almond Butter has a respectable range of uses as a main ingredient in baking cookies, fudge, etc. or a topping for ice cream. The use is really only bound by your imagination!

Good Fat and Bad Fat comparison for 16 grams of Nuts, almond butter, plain, without salt added

Polyunsaturated Fats: Polyunsaturated fat can be found mostly in nuts, seeds, fish, algae, leafy greens, and krill. Whole food sources are always best, as processing and heating may damage polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated Fats: Foods containing monounsaturated fats reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, while possibly increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. [“You Can Control Your Cholesterol: A Guide to Low-Cholesterol Living”. Merck & Co. Inc.].

Trans Fatty Acids: The National Academy of Sciences has concluded there is no safe level of trans fat consumption. This is because any incremental increase in trans fat intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease. [Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fibre, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids (Macronutrients). National Academies Press. p. 504].

Saturated Fats: Consumption of saturated fat is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the view of the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, the American Heart Association, the British Heart Foundation, the National Heart Foundation of Australia, the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand and the World Heart Federation.

Compared to peanut butter, Almond Butter contains significantly more fibre, calcium, potassium, iron and manganese and about half the saturated fat, although a slightly higher total fat content.

Nutural World Almond Butter is made in a peanut-free environment, and thus is completely safe for those with a peanut allergy. However, Nutural World produces other seed and nut based products, and while every effort is made to separate the production lines it cannot guarantee that the product is free of traces of other seeds and nuts.

Vegetarians, Vegans and the Manufacturing Process

Nutural World Almond Butter is made of 100% almond nuts, and thus is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The nuts are lightly roasted to enhance their taste and bring out their delicate aromas. The milling process uses traditional stone-based mills and not high speed rotating blades to generate the most uniform paste and keep the temperature during the milling process to the lowest possible.
