Why Go For Natural Peanut Butter
Natural peanut butter does not contain partially hydrogenated oil, the trans fat-laden ingredient that makes classic peanut butter silky smooth.
It also does not contain sugar or salt.
Fresh, ground peanut butter is more nutritious than regular peanut butter.
In a perfect world, natural peanut butter would contain only peanuts and salt and yes there are brands out there that are truly natural peanut butter.
Tip – Solve The Natural Peanut Butter Oil Separation
Leave your natural peanut butter jars upside down overnight before stirring the peanut butter.
The oil will rise to the bottom of the jar making the stirring process much cleaner, easier, and more efficient. Try it.
Why Choose Gluten Free Oats
Most commercial oats are processed in facilities that also process barley, rye and wheat.
The gluten in these ingredients can contaminate the oats, and the nature of most gluten intolerances is that even a trace amount of gluten can cause severe discomfort.
So one box of conventional oats may not create a reaction for a gluten-intolerant person, but then the next box might.
It’s best to completely avoid conventionally grown oats when cooking so try to choose gluten free oats instead.
Is Oat Flour Considered Gluten Free
Can You Replace Flour With Oat Flour?
1 cup of oat flour grind 1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats.
What Is Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
There are two types of shredded coconut, sweetened and unsweetened.
Method To Make Both Types
Raw coconut meat is boiled, grated, and dried.
Next, dehydrated shreds are packaged and distributed as unsweetened coconut or soaked in a liquid sugar solution, dried again to make sweetened coconut.
Is Unsweetened Shredded Coconut Good For You
Yes. Rich in fiber and MCTs, it offers a few benefits, which includes weight loss, digestion and improved heart health.
How Do You Store Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
Place shredded coconut in an airtight container, then store in your refrigerator for up to a week. Or store in your freezer, up to six months, for longer shelf life.
