Why is it necessary to add anything in peanut butter other than peanuts? Would’ve bought but I’m not big on the additional stuff in it.

Peanut butter is processed peanuts by definition. I don't know if one can "very" process them.

Other than PC, I also love Kraft’s Natural PB and don’t mind Great Value’s natural PB as well, both crunchy and creamy.

"Myth: Coconut oil is a heart-healthy cooking alternative.
The argument: Coconut oil is extremely high in saturated fat — about 50 percent more than butter, even.

But despite that saturated fat is known to raise cholesterol levels, linked with heart disease risk, proponents believe that some saturated fats in coconut oil (called medium-chain triglycerides) are less harmful and may actually raise levels of beneficial HDL cholesterol.

The reality: Coconut oil has been shown to raise cholesterol levels — the good and the bad kinds — more than other plant-based oils like olive or canola. And in truth, medium-chain triglycerides make up only a small amount of the fatty acids in coconut oil.

Plus, while other heart-healthy fats like olive oil, canola oil, or omega-3 fatty acids in nuts and seafood have been supported by a large body of evidence, coconut oil's supposed benefits still haven't been proved in large-scale human research."

Green curry is in my top 3 food and I could eat thai food everyday, but coconut is basically the rich man palm oil. The human heart will pump the equivalent of 7 000 KG each day thats approx equivalent to the weight of 200 000 Toyota Echo in a 80 years lifetime, not bad for a little fella who only weight 2 hockey puck. I strongly believe that cardio vascular health is 98% quantity and exercice rather than looking at ingredients but for someone like me who go crazy with coconut I want to give a warning.

do you have to keep this in the fridge once opened?

It tastes a lot better to me and doesn't contain any added sugar or salt or anything weird.

Yes. Otherwise it's very liquid. The container also advises you to refrigerate after opening.

My family loves the Jif Dark Roast. We've been getting it at Costco for the last year or so now.

Anyone know what happened to the Banana Granola peanut butter from Kraft? It was so good but I don't see it in stores anymore.

I just checked my jar and it does say to refrigerate it.

I personally don't and I've never had any issues. But that doesn't mean much

Maybe people realized you could just sprinkle granola and smushed banana on your toast.

I hate to break it to you, but…

Based on Jif’s own statement, there are 1300 peanuts on average in this jar. The average weight of a peanut is .4 grams. That means there are just over 500g of peanuts in this 1000g jar.

A conservative estimate would be 60% peanuts and 40% added sugars (sugar, molasses) and oils (at least three additional oils are added, some hydrogenated).

DON’T BUY THIS GARBAGE. I’d you do, treat it as a dessert.

Buy natural peanut butter. It isn’t much more expensive. You do NOT need to refrigerate unless it takes you months to eat the jar (all peanuts can go rancid). I suggest buying a brand that is in a glass jar for easier stirring, as they seem larger and won’t spill out.
