Why raw nut butters?
Raw nut butters are vastly superior to processed, pasteurized nut butters in terms of nutritional content. Heat pasteurization destroys proteins and phytonutrients, but it extends shelf life which is one reason why manufacturers love to use pasteurization.
Many store-bought pasteurized nut butters are also formulated with partially-hydrogenated oils
in order to make them more "solid" and avoid oil separation. This, of course, transforms such butters (such as peanut butter
) into molecular poisons containing trans fats
Health-conscious eaters are increasingly turning to raw nut butters
in order to avoid pasteurization and hydrogenation.
My favorite raw nut butters: Almond, cashew and macadamia
I've tried all kinds of raw nut butters over the years, and my favorites are:
• Almond butter:
It's rich, dark and loaded with health-protective nutrients. It's great in a sandwich, on toast, or as part of a dipping sauce recipe!
• Cashew butter:
This is the sweetest, creamiest nut butter you'll ever try. It's almost silky smooth, and the natural sweetness of cashews makes this taste like dessert all by itself. I love this on crackers or sprouted grain breads.
• Macadamia butter:
Mac nuts are some of my very favorite (right up there with pecans), and mac nut butter is extraordinary in its flavor and richness. It isn't cheap, of course, but eating macadamia nut butter is a taste luxury that's well worth the cost, I think you'll agree.
Other nut butters
you may enjoy include Pistachio, Pumpkin, Hazelnut and of course Tahini
, a calcium-rich butter made from sesame seeds.
