I ran into an issue with peanut butter on the diet.  Over the last couple months I've tried 3 different brands of penut butter.  2 seemed to make me ill while one didn't.  I don't remember the name of the one that didn't and was wondering why this one worked and the others didn't.  Anyone have a brand they use or prefer or know what I should look for in a peanut butter?

The symptoms I get with those peanuts butters are burning of the chest and aching teeth.

Commercial PB has sugars & possibly other additives. Try to find a brand that is just peanuts & salt.
When I used to eat PB & before I figured I had low blood sugar, & liked Skippy. It has less usgar, etc.  
Now as an O, I don't eat peanuts, but would ask at a health food store & also go back & read the labels of the ones that bothered you & see what's there.
PB is such a good thing to have to quell the 'munchies' & yet another thing hard to not have. Almond butter is getting very expensive, so we Os just have to deal with it!!

I have this problem with any PB with hydrognated oils in them, gives me indigestion. I just buy the one that says natural, peanuts and salt on the label.
Even fresh peanuts if they are not organic will bother me.

No peanut butter on earth bothers me.. It's food of the gods..
I use Smucker's all natural, no salt added. I don't like salt in my pb. That's odd an A who can't tolerate pb. Are you sure you're an A Saverain?

My husband  (type A) and I both used to get headaches from some peanut butter...I used to buy freshly ground peanut butter in the health food store.  We think the peanuts might have been moldy and that's the problem.  When I switched to an all natural brand bought in a jar, we were both fine.

Hubby and I often have problems with those roasted peanuts in shells too...

I really think moldy stuff is the problem for us and not the peanuts themselves.

We all have individual differences.

Have you tried almond butter? It does not have the cancer fighting properties of peanut butter/peanuts .


Peanuts help A's fight cancer.  Fresh peanuts would be good too, although it is hard to find a source that is not rancid.

The fresh ground in places like whole foods my contain aflatoxin so try and stay away from those.

I've never had a problem with Trader Joe's brand of creamy peanut butter, but then again, I have a fairly iron stomach . I buy almond butter from Vitamin Cottage (aka Natural Groceries).

I don't care much for valencia either. It doesn't taste like "real" peanut butter to me.

Drea, I can't afford almond butter. I make it in my vitamix.

Andrea, I disagree, we all are exactly the same...

Are you sure you don't just have a peanut allergy? It's quite common and could be dangerous.

I can't afford a Vitamix! But the almond butter that I get is priced at $5.99 per pound and is made fresh every day (sometimes they'll do it right then if they don't have any pre-ground). Also, everything in the produce and bulk dried food sections are organic at VC, so that's a bonus.

i find that I react differently to brands of peanut butter that are just peanuts and salt.

My reaction can also vary to the same brand.

For instance Smuckers bought at different stores bought within a few days of each other react differently for me.

Traders Joe's at the same store varies from what I got several months previous.

I have not figured out whether it is because of different batches of peanuts used to make a particular jar or how long the jar sat before I bought it.

I lean towards the storage issue making the difference.

Hello all BTD's,
Thought I would add my thoughts about the peanut butter here, I am a blood type A myself, and I used to eat the naturally more peanut butter but switched to another brand, cause the naturally more contains wheat germ, and I know wheat germ is an avoid for type A's and being I have an allergy to wheat and wheat gluten, I decided to switch to smart balance with the omega 3's in it, it's a natural peanut butter with no hydrogenated oils,no trans fatty acids, no refined sugar, and an excellent source of ALA. It is also gluten free for those who can't tolerate it,lactose free and pure vegan(great for type A's),it also has molasses in it as well.
Hey I didn't know that peanut butter has cancer fighting properties in it for type A's, really good to know that when you are looking out for your own health naturally, and I didn't know either that it was a food of the gods, what type of gods are you referring to? just curious. They must have been really smart to have eaten it, must have made their own of course, from fresh peanuts wherever they got them from. Just goes to show you that certain health issues can be cured or alleviated just by eating certain foods. AMAZING!!!!!!

I only eat brands that are (roasted) organic peanuts and salt, and have never had a problem with pb.  Just organic peanuts and salt...mmmmmmmmmmm...nothing like it.

I agree with Gumby on the roasted peanut peanut butter. I don't care for the unroasted peanut peanut butter, or ones without salt (Salt Advisory Council and all that ).

I like Peanut Butter.

And that's all I got to say about that.

Well actually, you just have to find what works for you.  I know it's a pain, but I have the same problem.  Some foods that are supposed to be even beneficial for me, can bother me.  And sometimes it's the maker or supplier and sometimes it's just the food in general.  Peanuts are one of those things that people can regularly have an allergy to.  Maybe you should try something else for a while and revisit it later.  Just use some Ghee for now or something.  That's my suggestion.

Ok I've tryed several different brands and types.  The best for me is the natural roasted creamy type for now but it still makes my muscles feel numb but they don't burn and I don't get the achy teeth.  I am positive it's the peanut butter.  I'm going to keep trying different ones because I believe the right one for me is out there.

Do you ever have that reaction to whole peanuts?  If you have a way to make your own peanut butter you can try it with some peanuts that you know agree with you.  That might narrow down if it's the peanuts or the processing that bothers you.

Even if you don't have the best tool for the job, and the peanut butter does't come out smooth or great, it still may be a good experiment...just don't let your blender or processor burn out in the process, if it has trouble.

I've been doing a lot of peanut and peanut butter research today.  There are so many variables we haven't considered.

Although I love Trader Joe's peanut butter, it's processed in a factory that also processes
wheat and other grain products.

And there are issues with roasting.  Dry roasting peanuts and then grinding with salt (or without salt) is probably the simplest way to produce a natural peanut butter.  But for
commercial peanut butter, most likely the peanuts went through a FRYING process, which is most commonly used for a richer flavor.  The process is called "blister frying".

It might be why if you purchase a jar of organic dry roasted peanut butter, it lacks the
deep rich "oily" fried flavor that has been imparted into the mainstream brands.

SO, the problems can originate from the oils which cooked the peanuts...the quality of the oil...which in most cases would be low and cheap and re-used for many batches..(there is also oil IN the peanut itself so how fresh is the peanut when the process began?)

Then in addition, we'd want to know if the peanuts were processed in a factory that isn't grinding other grains in the same or nearby equipment.  How much cross contamination
is going on.

There is so much we cannot find out about the quality of the peanut and the way the peanuts
were processed...  How fast after it left the field where it was grown was it processed?  
And what was sprayed on commercial crops of peanuts?

It does appear that most reputable companies have tested for myctoxins from aspergillus.
the aflotoxin mold.

Saverain, the symptoms you get from some peanut butters implies that there is
something about a specific brand that bothers you.  I get aching teeth from moldy foods.
A pain that seems to resonate from the top of my head, right through the nerves in my
teeth.  GIven that peanuts are subject to mycotoxins and mycotoxins can be considered
neurotoxins, my gut feeling is that it's brand specific.  Somewhere along a peanut's
journey to becoming peanut butter, the storing, or processing of the peanuts was faulty.

Yeh that's the exact feeling I get aching from the top of the head to the teeth and vice versa.  My head has actually formed a bump area where it hurts when I eat avoids.

When I was a kid I use to eat roasted peanuts with my father and never got any reactions, we ate a specific brand but can't remember, I should ask him.  But the peanuts I've tryed lately get me sick, raw and roasted but I didn't try many brands.  

I ate a whole jar of peanut butter a couple months ago, no problem but can't remember the brand.  I know it was free of salt and oils.  It was just peanuts.  I think it was roasted and organic.  I'm going to try another today.

I think we all must have some beneficial that doesn't agree with us. It's kind of funny, isn't it?
As an O, I had to give up PB. That was hard as it's so convenient & high in protein.

BTW, how do you react with other nut butters (besides having sticker shock at the prices nowadays)?
