Sunbutter products are a fantastic substitute for peanut butter. All varieties are delicious, but each has some unique characteristics. The "Creamy" has the closest consistency and appearance to regular peanut butter such as Skippy. This is the type my children enjoy the most. I feel that the "Natural" has the best flavor. However, it does separate, causing oil to rise to the top, just as organic peanut butter does. The "Natural Crunch" is the "Natural" with whole sunflower seeds added. It separates as well, but has excellent flavor. I suffer from a severe peanut allergy. This product is made in a peanut free plant. I have been using it for years and can honestly say it is the best tasting peanut substitute I have ever tried.
Tastes like a smooth paste of sunflower seeds. If you've ever eaten a handful of unshelled sunflower seeds, then you'll know exactly what I mean. I was torn between rating this a 4 and a 5 because I personally like the taste of Almond Butter just a little better, but the product delivered the exact flavor they advertised, so I had to give it a 5. Smooth, creamy and spreads very well.
I can't have peanut butter in the house because I'm addicted and the carbs aren't worth the indulgence. I LOVE the taste of this as much as peanut butter. I buy the creamy but it still has a lot of texture unlike regular creamy peanut butter. I get to indulge without the guilt and high carbs!!!!
We LIVE on this stuff at my house, kids love it, too. I often sneak down to the kitchen and have a spoonful as a quick late-night snack--a filling, tasty, and low-carb treat. We have tried and can highly recommend all varieties of this product.
This product to me tastes much better than almond butter. I was looking for a nut or seed butter that is not from a legume that would taste as good as peanut butter. This is the only one I have found. AND, Netrition's price is less than my grocery store!
One of my 3 kids has a peanut allergy and for some years soy butter was the only alternative I could find but then in learning that soy was not so healthy, I began looking for another alternative, found this on a supermarket shelf when traveling. Loved it! It tasted good and I looked for it local, but often can only find one or two jars or its out of stock (I'm talking in a 50+mile radius, I live rurally) so Netrition has a great price on it, but given the convenience of online shopping vs. me driving all over for it, its a huge VALUE on here. It subs very well in recipes for peanut butter! My husband complains about the separation... but he's a man and stirring it must feel too much liking cooking for him, but that's what you get with a natural product, I like it!
I purchased this product last week. And am already needing to purchase more. I have been looking for something like peanut butter, but I am allergic to so many foods. This product is great!! It taste wonderful, and I have no reactions to it. Love it!!
Wow! SunButter is excellent. I bought the Natural version. It's creamy and smooth. Tastes great. I love peanut butter but decided to try this sunflower butter because it's lower in fat. I may never go back to regular peanut butter again.
