Is JIF creamy penut butter vegan?
this might sound like a stupid question but is JIF penut butter really vegan or not? I have heard many things about peanut butter conataining ants, but i never believed it, but some people are saying that it might contain animal fats in it. is this true?
I checked the JIF website. Here are the listed ingredients:
MADE FROM ROASTED PEANUTS AND SUGAR. CONTAINS 2 PERCENT OR LESS OF: MOLASSES, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL (SOYBEAN), FULLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS (RAPESEED AND SOYBEAN), MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES AND SALT.
Glycerides, both mono-, di-, and also tri, are glycerol which can come from either animal fats or plants. So unless it's marked VEGAN you can't trust that it is. Those mono and diglycerides may come from animal fats.
some of them do. if you get organic vegan peanut butter you can see the difference.
yes it is vegan but it has trans fats in it from hydrogenated oil.you should eat natural peanut butter it has no trans fat.
The only type of peanut butter I use is
Smart Balance. It's totally vegan.
The biggest thing to watch out for
is the sugar or sugars in peanut
butter. Most contain refined sugar
that has been bleached with animal
bone char. Many also contain corn
syrup as a separate type of sugar.
For me corn and syrup are cursed
words when placed together.
I avoid them at all cost.
The only other type of pb I would
use would be an organic low sugar
kind with vegan contents.
I like Smart Balance because it
includes Omega Fatty Acids.
Well, I don't know if it's vegan... but JIF? Ughhh. Eat some REAL peanut butter.
no its not.
find organic peanut butter.
it tastes way better.
probably, but it's not a peanut butter thats healthy. It's got hydrogenated oil in it (trans fat). Skippy makes a natural NO STIR PB and so does the Costco brand Kirkland.
In addition to all the good reasons not to eat it listed above, their parent company tests on animals.
