  1. Re:Difference Between Peanut butter and Nutella

    Hi,

    Just wanted to point out to you that you have your measurements wrong in your article. The measure for the servings is 2 tablespoons, not 2 teaspoons, when quoting those sugar measurements.

  2. Peanut butter is literally made from peanuts ground into a buttery texture.

    Hydrogenated fat, sodium/salt, refined sugars, etc. are unhealthy for humans and only found in the “junk food” versions of peanut butter (such as “Jif” for example).

    Peanut butter and Nutella are comparable only because Nutella is extremely sweet, like “jelly” or “jam” which is often used to offset the flavor of the peanut butter in a sandwich. But unlike real jelly, Nutella relies on hydrogenated fat, refined sugars and even sodium (along with aggressive marketing, such as this web page) for much of its appeal.

    Freshly ground organic ground peanut butter and organic almonds can be purchased at Whole Foods, Fairway and elsewhere starting at $3.50, much cheaper than branded, so-called junk peanut butter. Numerous jellies that are sweetened with only fruit can also be purchased where Nutella is sold at the supermarket. It takes up to one year to start to lose the addiction to overly sweet or overly salty foods — once this happens, though, real food tastes much better, and the human feels strong and happy!

    That said, we love to eat Nutella once or twice a year.
