Peanuts and peanut butter contain monounsaturated fats, which are linked to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

It’s fair to claim peanut butter as a good source of protein. And even a small serving also contains a lot of important vitamins and minerals.

    And besides that, if there’s palm oil in your peanut butter it doesn’t only harm you but the endangered orangutan and other animals where they grow it!

  • I love peanut butter. I mostly use the just peanuts version. I also like almond butter. My favorite is to melt some dark chocolate and peanut butter in microwave and eat with strawberries or other fruit.

  • I don’t know where you are but almost every grocery store has a natural peanut butter with nothing added but salt. Just an aside if the oil floating to the top bothers you, put the lid on extra tight and turn it upside down. Turn it right side up and let it sit a few minutes it will settle and not require as much stirring. I eat natural peanut butter just of a spoon once in a while, not every day. I have lost 50lbs and been at my goal weight about 4 months. Peanut butter is not bad unless you overeat.

  • It’s seems to me many of Authority Nutrition’s videos are missing pertinent information in the presentation made on the subject, however I believe this one is close to spot on. The only thing I could see was that was omitted is the fact that peanuts used for butter are roasted, and not just the raw peanut. Therefore some of the nutrition is destroyed in the process, and that raw nuts are a better choice.

  • In one second he says its bad then says its not bad to eat,huh? excess consumption of one food can be bad so eat in moderation and you’ll be find.

  • It is so true… the ones I like the most are skippy and jiff… but I don’t buy them.. I only buy one ingredient peanut butter.. peanuts and usually organic

  • WATCH ��: Eating Honey Every Day Will Do This To Your Body

  • I love peanut butter I make my own homemade no bake chocolate cookies. I am deathly allergic to almonds from a flu shot injury but I can still eat peanut butter. Do you have any suggestions for a healthy peanut butter that is not made on the same equipment as tree nuts? I could go into anaphylactic shock if don’t get a peanut butter free of traces of tree nuts.

  • I’ve heard some info on peanut butter being bad for you so I started watching this video. About halfway through I said to myself, “Who cares, it’s not like I’m giving it up either way!” ����

  • Anyone watched this with the English captions? “I told you have to have 20 penis three times a week! �� Think that was at around 2.32.

  • I absolutely love peanut butter and my favorite is the Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted. That said, I’ve stopped eating peanut butter almost completely-not because of any food rules or health or diet concerns, but because my body just isn’t digesting it well. I find that, in the past couple of years, I don’t feel good after I’ve eaten peanut butter. Sad, but feeling good has become more important to me. I’m counting this as positive progress.

  • Usually overweight women have muffins for breakfast and salad for lunch. Like they just dont get it…. They never eat protein
    Just sugar and carbs and lettuce which is 97 percent water.

  • l tried switching to natural peanut butter (peanuts and salt). The problem is there isn’t enough oil in it, it’s too thick to spread on toast and very dry now l just stop eating.

  • Eating peanuts are very healthy and part of a balances diet. They control blood pressure, heart, prevent diabetes and strokes and very nutritious. But even tho peanuts are healthy, peanut butter isn’t.
    It is full of omega 6 fats which can lead to inflammation, skin problems, asthma, respiratpry diseases heart disease and cancer.
    Many peanut butter are processed and manufactured with stabilisers which add trans fatty to the substance. Sometimes salt and sugar is added along with maltodextrj which is bad for ur blood sugar levels and vegetable oils which is already chemically processed and loaded with omega 6 fatty acids as well as peanuts having lots of omega 6 on its own.
    If u want to get benefits, eat peanuts and eat more omega 3

  • Giving Peanuts to an already obese nation is a bit silly. Coronary Artery Disease and Type 2 diabetes doesn’t start with consuming more food; that’s just nuts.

  • I never allowed myself peanut butter when I was dieting I so feared the fat and calories. So this was the first diet rule I broke! I live in the UK so we have different brands (but we do have skippy) but I love crunchy no sugar peanut butter. Loved this video tit’s great you share your dietician’s knowledge thank you x

  • I make all of my own nut butters (except peanut butter which I buy all natural, organic and now will start using Valencia). It’s so easy and more delicious than purchasing it. I buy nuts raw in bulk on and then use a food processor to grind them and pink sea salt, vanilla extract etc to flavor them. You can sweeten them with stevia if you want a sweet flavor which my kids love! I do usually toast the almonds and cashews for 10-12 minutes to enhance the flavor, but raw macadamias make the best nut butter so no need for roasting. Thanks for the video!

  • I am peanut butter obsessed. Im a t1d. And i find the 100% peanuts is what i use because its better on my bloodsugar and peanut butter is like one thing i eat every single day. Its a safe food, they say it even helps with bloodsugar control. I like the crunchy and the smooth. I do have a restricted diet, only because or my diabetes. Because carbs affect my sugar in great amounts even little things, but i have been eating different things more that i used to eat, just making sure i take more care how much of them im eating and how it affects my sugar, some of the stuff i actually have for lows, but i love the stuff like the pb and cheese crackers or the cheese on cheese. And i got fruit snacks for lows (haven’t ate those at all yet) its just nostalgia, so its nice to have some of those things sometimes

  • Thanks for this video! Yeah, I love me some peanut butter, especially the honey roasted fresh ground at my local Fresh Thyme. I’m a type 2 diabetic and I notice whenever my sugar is low I crave peanut butter. I also prefer extra chunky peanut butter.

  • The peanut butter I eat here in Brazil consists of only ONE ingredient: peanuts.
    No oil, no sugar, no salt. 90 calories per tablespoon, about 3,6g protein.

  • I get organic roasted smuckers. Nothing added its just roasted. I think its ok. Almonds can also have mold. Raw almond are full of antrinutrients. We soak ours then roast. Please include all the info. All nuts well peanuts are legumes. Almonds are seeds. All nuts should be soaked.

  • I’ve tried the other options and I don’t like them, I still love peanut butter the best! I’ve it cut down to once a month, if at all.

  • But who is eating only 1tbs of peanut butter that’s hardly nothing most of us are eating a half cup at least in a sandwich with a 1/4 of jelly

  • I was so sad in the beginning, then he said that if you get organic peanuts it’s fine, and I make my own peanut butter and buy organic peanuts, and then he said if you consume omega-3s, you should worry about the omega-6s, and I add peanut butter to my healthy ice cream/smoothie bowl with chia seeds.

  • I grow peanuts and make my own peanut butter out of them. I melt the peanuts with butter, Walnut oil and add cassava and it’d sugar free and trans fat free. It’s great

  • It’s good to bath with antibacterial soap’s. Or foam antibacterial soap what you prefer; & bird bath’s, as well that’s a good thing! but you will have to moisturize your skin” after as well from drying out?

  • Freaking can’t eat anything nothing the heck I’m so tired of people saying don’t eat this and don’t eat that tired of it sick of it

  • I was eating quite a lot of peanut butter (organic, no sugar), and my acne got so bad. I have pimples even on my neck, never had this before. So I am planning to stop eating it

  • Hi, I use about one tablespoon of peanut butter on a slice of bread toast every morning for breakfast.. is that healthy consumption of peanut butter?

  • The other night I was feeling little nauseated. Grabbed a spoon and peanut butter for some reason. And I felt better later. Doing that again tonight. My stomachs been feeling uncomfortable today. And again grabbed my spoon and peanut butter. 2grams only of sugar. Idk why I ever stopped eating peanut butter like this, I used to do it all the time as a kid. Now that I do my own grocery shopping. I can keep a regular supply of peanut butter lol

  • when he said liver and kidney cancer, my heart when like tesla roadster from 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds, I honestly didn’t know that you can get cancer from peanut butter….

  • Peanut butter is full of vitamins and nutrients, prevents type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, lowers cholesterol, improves eye sight, prevents gallstones, improves digestion, good source of protein, potassium and magnesium, good for heart health, promotes weight loss, lowers blood pressure and depression to name a few so don’t tell me peanut butter is not good for you.

  • I am a PB lover too and my favorite is honestly homemade from dry roasted unsalted peanuts. Sometimes I add in other nuts but nothing beats the homemade for me. The traditional Jif style is too sweet for me anymore. ��

  • Not good. The Omega 3 to Omega 6 ration of peanut is not good for humans, oh and don’t forget to let everybody know that foods like peanuts have oxalates. Get yourself up to speed before taking a recommendation like this.

  • Let’s not forget you should eat natural organic no sugar added peanut butter! It doesn’t have the hydrogenated oils or sugar the National brands have.

  • Dont you have to refridgerate the natural stuff? The constant stirring(which I make an oily mess doing) and the fact that its cold turned me off of the natural stuff. I love kraft creamy peanut butter. I melt it on top of ice cream…delicious

  • I use natural peanut butter more as a condiment than a focal food. About a tablespoon gives a rich, creamy taste to oatmeal, and of course, anyone who has had peanut sauce in Thai cooking, well, that speaks for itself.

  • If people bought unsalted organic crunchy peanut butter they would never look back, there is no contest with the common supermarket brands in terms of taste, consistency, and nutrition.

  • Use apple-cider-vinegar as a part of the diet. It’s boosts fat burning, reduces the ‘bad’ fungi in the intestines and has a lot of other benefits..

  • I try to stay clear from most processed foods…nearly all have been detrimentally tampered with. Just reading the labels on supermarket packaged foods makes me want to puke.

  • I love videos like this! I love that you are comparing taste and what nutrition generally says about each, but you also let viewers know that balance is what is important. And I also love your self reflections in the videos you do too! I think it would be super cool if you could do other videos like this with yogurt, granola, bread brands, dressings, etc. Thank you for this!

  • Surprise he didn’t mention peanut butter made from just peanuts! BJ’s sell an organic peanut butter by Wellesley Farms. Only 2 ingredients: Peanuts and Sea Salt. Its creamy but still has peanut grit texture and blends perfectly in whole milk yogurt.

  • But what if I often consume fish and cod liver oil? Peanut butter can be beneficial (and nuts) if your omega 6 and 9s are balanced. It should be 100% natural though and not like well known brands with added sugar and hydrogenated oils.

  • What if you have a grinder and all you need is the fresh peanuts and you grind it all up in make your own peanut butter would it still be the same? What all the toxin

  • I practically lived on Peanut Butter sandwiches for decades I haven’t had one since I’ve started the Carni diet over a year ago. There’s no way I could eat almond or sunflower butter my daughter brings that junk home Ugg!!

  • I was the type that would just avoid peanut butter because it was too high in calories so thank you for making this video it really helped me. I also felt (and still) feel like that about mayo. I now know I can eat peanut butter and not feel anxious about it.

    Do you think you can make a video like this but about mayonnaise? That would be extremely helpful.

    Thank you so much Colleen, I’m new to your channel and have struggled with an eating disorder for so many years. You have helped me so much already ��

  • Make my own, so easy and you know what goes into it! The nuts are grown organic as I grown my own. Grandchildren love picking the peanuts and help me crack them open. The husks go back as compost

  • When I watch this video it had like no sound at all I mean it’s a good message and I understand the like science behind it but I would like sound in the video

  • Peanut butter is not the same as having ‘whole’ peanuts. And will not have the same health benefits. Bought in their shells and roasted yourself is the way to go…..

  • Here we go folks another radical like Dr axe lot of them out there picking on peanut butter I just can’t believe it listen to your own body what ever you want to eat just go on and eat it go by what you like not what they tell you because these radicals will drive you crazy

  • SOS no added Sugars, Salts, or Oils. Even Justin’s ‘organic’ peanut butter has PALM oil in it. Just read the label. The best has ingredients that simply says PEANUTS! imagine that! Woodstock is outstanding. Santa Cruz is as well, but does have a bit of added salt.

  • Organic plain peanut butter is healthy right? Like the 365 brand with only peanuts and sea salt as the ingredients? I’ve been eating it daily, I hope so ������I get it from sprouts or Whole Foods.

  • peanut butter lovers unite!! Personally I enjoy both the natural and the sweet conventional one depending on my moodboth equally delicious!

    There is so much wrong with foods we are sold to eat nowadays. I say don’t stress over the details. That will cause your cortisol to increase and make more belly fat. Just eat as healthy and in moderation as you possibly can and trust that the good Lord will take care of you.
    God bless you my friends. ��

  • So two heaping tablespoons of Jiff in my evening smoothie, along with 30g of protein and a banana is probably what’s making my waistline expand?�� Sure is good though.

  • I suggest scooping peanut butter with a steak knife versus a fork or spoon because it spoons less so it’s not just what you eat but how much of it too. Yes, it’s complicating but we all make things complicating these days. Water is your best friend.

  • Thank you ����♥️ now I can go back to consume some peanut butter in my diet �� I respect you so much and I respect your knowledge �� you’re the best ��♥️

  • I never liked peanuts or peanut butter. But now with my keto diet I am really giving a try to peanut butter (organic)…my thing is actually chocolate with hazelnut och almond nuts! And sugar….but that I am not aloud to eat that anymore!��

  • Thank you doctor I am suffering from psoriasis and I was have a lot of problems regarding the use of peanut butter but you just solved it thank you

  • Processing reducing aflatoxins but increasing oxidation of PUFA fatty acids which are about 50% of mass in peanuts… mostly omega 6 LA.

  • I am 15, 120 lbs, 5,1 and I eat peanut butter with 4 pieces of white bread often like 5 times weekly so 20 pieces of white bread with normal store peanut butter, no peanut allergies, I also workout 10-15 minutes 5-6 days weekly(usually sweat decent amount), is it going to be bad for me, im just trying to be healthy

  • Never drink milk while you’re consuming peanauts or peanaut butter. it will cause you seriously resperatory problems, which it can cause death. I have experience by that.

  • At 2:30 in this video….Really? Both Jungle peanuts and Valencia peanuts are grown underground. ” All ” peanuts are grown under ground. I’ve grown both of those varieties myself. First hand experience.

  • Glad you didn’t go overboard with the whole saturated fat craze because that can also be a fear with most people. And depending on the source saturated fat is touted as actually good for you and doesn’t cause heart disease like once thought. There is a lot of contradiction out there, so you saying listening to your body and not fearing food was very much appreciated. The mind plays a role and so does balance.

  • This is because in the US ALL of your products are genetically modified crap. You don’t know how to eat healthily and what sort of food is actually healthy. You eat too much sugar, too much saturated fat, too much meat and all of this food you eat is mostly processed and filled with hormones and preservatives. I eat solely organic, i am of course vegan (actually vegetarian but nothing causes the suffering or death of animals) because meat is completely unnecessary to human diet, i eat eggs m unfertlized ones from hens that i raise myself and feed with organic grain, i drink milk which comes from my neighbour’s organic farm in in the mountains of Switzerland. The cows are not artificially impregnated to produced more milk and then forced to abort, they are hand milked and none of them just like my hens will ever end up at a slaughterhouse. I drink organic wine, one glass a day, i do not drink soda or anything that comes from the supermarket, i grow my own vegetables and fruits, olive oil comes directly from a friend in Morocco whose family has been producing the best organic premium extra virgin oil for hundreds of years. When i want fruit juice fruits myself, i bake my own pies and cakes with milk and butter coming from my neighbour’s farm and organic wheat flour and raw sugar which comes from the organic farms you can find online, all local which i visited at least once personally. I get proteins from organic nuts, beans, and other sources.
    And i feed my kids exactly the same way. I am a vet married to an MD we are all vegetarian, i have been my entire life and at the age of 44 i don’t have one single health issue, no cholesterol, no blood pressure, i run, swim and do other sports every day, i still have a very athletic body, no hair loss, perfect eyesight, never had a cavity or toothache in my life, and my libido is the same as it was when i was 25 with no deficiency whatsoever down there either.
    The last time i ate crisps or drunk a coke i was 13 years old and i tried it once. I eat peanut butter, i make it myself from fresh organic peanuts which i roast myself.
    The secret to live a long and healthy life is to eat properly, exercise properly, and live a stress free life. You create your own stress, and you are the one responsible for not exercising enough and properly. Add to that, alcohol, cigarettes, meat, saturated fat, sugar, processed transgenic food, filled with hormones, preservatives and other toxins and how can you expect to be in good health.

  • I always get the JIF natural peanut butter. For me, it’s my favorite amount of sweetness in a peanut butter. I don’t usually like 100% peanut versions, which is perfectly fine! All foods have a place in a balanced diet!

  • Ok I am very very new at this. I am coming off Keto and peanut butter was something I missed so much!!! One of my favorite snacks is apples and peanut butter and it’s been years since I have eaten it. Today I did and I am so happy!!!

  • Ugh I hate it when people demonize peanut butter! One of my favorite times to have it is just a spoonful before bed if I’m still hungry for whatever reason. It’s super satiating and easy to digest before I sleep.

  • My mom used to make me peanut butter and honey sandwiches when I was in grade school. Time to start eating them again, but using 12 grain bread instead of white. Graham crackers, peanut butter and honey are also good.

  • I like the raw organic peanut butter so does my son, I check to make sure it is just peanuts. It’s a mission to mix it because it separates, lol! Thank you again!

  • You lost me with the allergy explanation.
    Outside North America there’s no such allergy in kids.
    Kids in North America are not exposed to peanuts in young age, so their immune system is not trained for peanuts.
    Such problem does not exist in countries where there’s no recommendation to avoid peanuts at young age.
    Nothing to do with your “mould” nonsense.

  • Laura Scutters pb all natural no added sugar, oil, or anything bad like that. Also tastes way better than most other popular brands

  • I love peanut and pickle 1/2 sandwich.
    I am type 1 diabetic, doctor said eat without the bread, cuz the bread turns to starch, that is okay. It has been my favorite since childhood! Yum!

  • Coming from Africa i realized most of these videos are irrelevant to us because we know peanut butter here us roasted, ground nut (in a blender) and oil for preserving, thats what’s in the supermarkets.

  • I love peanut butter. Here in Australia we have a chain of stores called “Nutshack”. They sell, amongst other things, tubs of peanut butter made on the premises with a vitamix type machine. Just peanuts in that tub. However, I have never considered if those peanuts are organic. Thanks for the heads up will check it out. Love your videos by the way Dr Nick!!��

  • What kinds of bullshit study you talking Tb about Dr Oz?
    How long was the study. They couldn’t possibly be followed around their entire lives.
    Your nonsense Dr Oz. Obviously your friend in this video has a vested interest in her peanut farm. Your trash Mr. Oz.

  • What kind of Dr,are you, are you a real medical Dr, or you a nutritionist with a Dr title,so what Meeks you an expert on peanut butter

  • hi. I have been recovering from anorexia and I have been trying to eat consistently 5-6 times a day. I lost my hunger and fullness cues-I never get hungry and never feel a fullness sensation when I finish a meal. I am also trying to get my period back. from your experience, do your patients have a loss of hunger and fullness cues from undereating??? and, I also do not crave any food and do not get the same enjoyment that I use to when eating food-I don’t know if they were some altercations in my reward system in my brain from undereating. do you know whether ill have that rewarding feeling when I eat food once my cues and period restore??? im just so lost and am worried my health will be like this for the rest of my life

  • I love TJ’s natural with flax and chia seeds because it’s extra crunchy and drizzles well! Unfortunately I moved and now live 30 minutes from the closest TJs ��. Anyone know a similar tasting/textured option?

  • 1tablespoon 3x a week?
    Haha, jokes on you, I use 1tablespoon for 1 slice of bread. And I eat 6 slices for breakfast. Do the maths ��

  • Great info I have been addicted to the peanut butter since childhood but I have been eating raw almonds butter peanut for the last 4 years and it’s definitely made a difference I can tell is like night and day

  • The aflotoxin scare is just that…a scare. The FDA carefully regulates aflatoxin levels by requiring manufacturers to process the peanuts [and corn as well which by the way is not grown on the ground] in such a way as to remove 99.9999% of this toxin to levels between 20-200 PPB. Just as Dave Asprey (Bulletproof Coffee fame) has misled people about the mycotoxin fears and coffee (almost all coffees are processed using either the washed or semi-washed method removing 99+% of those toxins) the aflatoxin scare should be dropped from the premise. FYI, coffee is the most ubiquitous beverage next to drinking water consumed in the world. If mycotoxins were seriously an issue it would be obvious.

    Based on the aflatoxin fear you would think even fresh ground peanut butter would be harmful. Read Dr. Campbell’s “The China Study”, where he hits this pretty hard early in the book. In the Philippines an “outbreak” of juvenile liver cancer was traced back to peanut butter and aflatoxin but that was due their lack of processing guidelines which he points out (as a PHD in Public Health) is tightly regulated in the US. I would also add that they found the trigger was actually in casein as the real culprit in the metastatic advancement of the disease there.

  • I’m British, and I feel like peanut butter isn’t as big a deal, so I’m unfamiliar with what’s good. Now that I’m married to an American and have a son over here who loves it, my family needs me to buy it in bulk lol! This video really gives me such a great insight into which are the best options for every day, thank you ❤️

  • Thank you for delineating the differences! I love how you explained the pros and cons of each but the take home message, not to have food rules about what is “good” or “bad” as that can lead to guilt, your videos/IG content have really been helping me determine what is a food rule or not. Sometimes I have the regular smucker’s PB, but also sometimes I have the super unprocessed PB. Both are fine:)

  • I personally have tried no salt added, natural PB from Trader Joe’s and wasn’t a fan. To bland. Also when refrigerated it got super hard�� Could you add salt to it when using it. I love dipping apples in PB so if I ground a little pink Himalayan salt in it that wold help right?

  • I had to take peanut butter out of my life due to inflammation (on the western diet) so I went keto and now my body can respond alot better to peanut butter! It seems like a superfood for me, improving body comp/digestion movement and energy.

  • Peanut butte sandwichr and a cup of tea…. yummy, I’ll just need to get the “only peanuts one”��We are all peanut butter family.�� Thanks Bestie!

  • Essential in my opinion for anybody on a vegetarian or semi vegetarian diet. I ate a lot of peanut butter and banana sandwiches when I’m trying to eat vegetarian.

  • I eat peanut butter everyday which isn’t that great. I buy one with no sugar/oils made of just peanuts. Trying to cut down on them because of toxins, thanks for this video it was really helpful:)

  • Almond butter is better. Les carbs in keto. Almond butter is more expensive. Interesting. I like almond butter very mutch so switching to keto I was able to eat 3 jars a day didn’t put on weight.

  • Unsalted roasted peanuts is good for you because its high in coq10, magnesium, zinc and protien..FYI, most nuts are high in OMEGA 6 FATTY acid…

  • If I got a peanut butter jar and a loaf of bread in my house then… I’m doomed! Haha! But I’m not complaining. For me it’s the most enjoyable and satisfying food ever! It’s ok to treat yourself like this time after time.

  • Simple solution: do your peanut butter at home. You only need roasted peanuts, liquid butter and something to crush and mix them. 0 industrial addictions this way.

  • Healthy fats, protein, fibre and gives a feeling of fullness even in small amounts. Even palm oil (added to the one I buy) gets a unfair bad rap just avoid the sugar added variety as it’s meant to be a savoury foods.

  • Peanuts are so inflammatory. Healthiest Nuts are Macadmia, Walnuts, and Almonds but in limited amounts and all nuts are better when “Sprouted” (soaked in water) OVERNIGHT.

  • This audience took the bus from the peanut allergy guild. Everyone died 3 minutes after the camera cut. They weren’t trying to fight over peanuts, they were trying to get it away from them.

    This day will always be remembered by the peanut survivors and first responders.

  • I quit eating peanut butter about 9 months ago and I feel a lot better not to mention getting rid of those extra calories. I’ve noticed that it was making me have headaches and some joint pain even though I take turmeric daily plus I felt that it made me feel a little fatigued. I wasn’t buying the cheap stuff either, I tried several super high priced organic brands and all of them gave me the same result. I think it might be a good idea if everyone just stayed away from peanuts, after all they’re not really nuts. Take Care

  • Most people eat Skippy or Jiff. Do a video on those. What about almond butter? Whole Foods has delicious AB and it is reasonably priced. Love it on a banana.
