Crazy Richards Peanut Butter

Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter allows you to get a healthy source of peanuts but at the same time, still satisfy that creamy peanut butter craving!

Why Peanut Powder? Peanuts, no matter their form, offer a variety of health benefits including being a great source of energy, rich in vitamins like niacin and vitamin E, protein, fiber and manganese. Due to their higher energy content, you need less to feel full and satisfied.FullSizeRender-9.jpg

One form of peanuts, peanut powder, is made by pressing the peanuts to remove naturally occurring oils. The result is a powder containing a higher protein to fat ratio (6g protein to 1.5g   fat) as well as fiber and other nutrients that make peanuts so nutritious. It’s important to choose peanut powders without the fillers, such as added sugars or flavors to ensure you are consuming a quality product. Unlike many other popular brands of peanut powders, Crazy Richard’s keeps it simple by using only 1 ingredient—peanuts!

Press about 90% of the oil out of their single ingredient creamy peanut butter and what do you get? Pure PB; a super versatile pure peanut powder that lets you add the flavor and protein from the peanut to anything from baking to shakes. Now in a portable single serve for on the go.FullSizeRender-18.jpg
