Peanut butter lovers, rejoice! The first powdered nut butter featuring additional functional benefits has arrived, courtesy of PB2. It’s called PB2 Pre + Probiotic Peanut Powder, and it’s also the first PB2 product with zero added sugar. That’s right, it’s time to add this delicious product to your list of healthy probiotic foods for a healthier gut.
Gone are the days when yogurt was one of the only ways to incorporate prebiotics or probiotics into your diet. We’ve taken powdered peanut butter – already a nutritional powerhouse on its own – and created a superfood out of it.
Inulin, the prebiotic found in the new PB2 product, is a soluble dietary fiber providing both functional and nutritional benefits. It’s good for fiber fortification and the facilitation of calorie and sugar reduction. In addition, Inulin promotes overall digestive health and enhances calcium absorption.
The probiotic in new PB2 with Pre + Probiotics is called bacillus coagulans and it’s a live bacterium. It’s unique in PB2 because it comes in a dried powder. (Most live probiotics in other food products come in a liquid state, which requires refrigeration.) Our shelf-stable probiotic doesn’t become active until it hits the right environment – your gut! That’s when it starts delivering all the functional benefits you’d expect of probiotic foods.
PB2 with Pre + Probiotics contains 6 grams of plant-based protein per 13-gram serving, which equals about 2 tablespoons. The product also has just 60 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per serving. By comparison, that is roughly 90-percent less fat and nearly 70-percent fewer calories than traditional peanut butter.
