I just started the Paleo diet today. My question is, what brand of almond butter is best? I currently use Maranatha but noticed on the ingredient list it contains "cane sugar" and I know sugar is a no-no. Do all almond butters contain sugar?
the grocery store I usually shop at (in part) has a machine that turns almonds into almond butter before your eyes and the only ingredient is almonds. It is awesome but broken a lot which sucks. I used to have this kitchen thing I ordered online that I think was called the Magic Bullet (?) and you could make your own nut butters with it (I used to make my own peanut butter and almond butter-pre-paleo) so if you can buy something like that to add to your kitchen I would say the best way would be making your own at home. Then you could add some honey or whatever you want to it. Yum. I need to get another magic bullet...
Naturalmond is the freshest, comes in a glass jar (no plastic chemicals to worry about) and uses the best quality almonds. And of course, tastes the best, hands down!!! They are a small local (local to me in Atlanta) company but are growing quickly. They are about to sell almond flour too. Here is their web site http://www.naturalmond.com/purchase.html
