Nut Butters are a spreadable foodstuff made by grinding nuts into a paste. The result has a high unsaturated fat, protein and fibre content and can be spread like true butter but is otherwise unrelated. Eaten in moderation they are often recommended by dieticians as they quickly satisfy hunger pangs and leave people feeling full for longer. Nut Butter products are usually free from sugar and gluten and are good for those following a vegetarian, vegan or paleo diet. The most famous is peanut butter which encouraged generations of children to have some good quality protein on their toast. As well as providing a substitute for butter nut butters can be put in smoothies, stirred into porridge or even eaten on apple slices. A useful tip is to store the jar upside down to minimise the oil separation and the need to stir between uses. Now we have butters made from a wider variety of nuts such as almond, cashew, hazelnut, brazil, macadamia, pecan, walnut. Similar spreads can be made from seeds that are not considered as nuts in a culinary sense such as pumpkin seed, sesame and sunflower seed.
