Peanut butter is considered a traditional staple food of American diets. The all-time favorite spread is made out of dried and roasted peanuts. During the production process, the peanuts are blanched and sorted, then grinded into a creamy consistency. The main ingredients of peanut butter include a minimum of 90 percent peanuts, plus peanut oil or another type of vegetable oil, and sugar or another type of sweetener and salt.
The popular national brands JIF, Skippy and Peter Pan are still having a strong consumer acceptance due to a consistency in quality and taste. Besides buying peanut butter at the retail store, more and more consumers are interested in preparing their own homemade spread, so they know what’s inside their jar.
