Where to Find Natural, Unsweetened Peanut Butter

Updated on September 05, 2007

My dietician told me to use "Nutter butter," a brand of natural peanut butter, instead of peanut butter. But I can't find it anywhere! I looked in the aisles of Jewel, Dominicks, Walmart...I did find "sunflower butter" and "light" peanut butter, but not a natural peanut butter.

What can I do next?

Sunset Foods would have that. Maybe not that specific brand, but they have lots of organic/no preservative foods. They're in Northbrook and Highland Park, and there are a couple of other farther-flung stores.

Hi Erika
I'm not sure where you live but in the city, Chicago in the South Loop carries organic natural peanut butter. Maybe try checking Trader Joes or Whole Foods.

Erika:
not sure what "nutter butter" is but peanut butter is easy to make with raw unsalted peanuts. there is also almond and cashew butters available...

I think you would find these at whole foods/ sunset or home economist.

I don't know about that particular brand, but we always get "natural" peanut butter. Trader Joes has good organic PB, and Whole Foods does too. Plus, peanuts are one of those foods that's really good to get organic, so I would look for that (non-organic versions have a lot of pesticides). WF is better if you want unsalted. TJ's is better if you want a salted version.

Actually Costco's Kirkland brand carries an organic creamy peanut butter that tastes really good. Its ingredients are organic peanuts and organic palm oil, but it does contain salt. My two-yr-old loves it!
