If you’re looking to add more healthy protein to your diet and you’ve never considered powdered peanut butter, than this blog post is for you!
When it comes to making protein choices to keep your body and mind healthy, quality is just as important as quantity.
And, for anyone who loves peanut butter and is looking to up their protein intake, PB2 is a perfect choice. Our products contain 90% less fat and 70% fewer calories than their traditional counterparts. Yet, they still retain the wholesome, delicious flavors people associate with peanut butter or almond butter.
Each PB2 product typically contains 4 to 6 grams of protein per 13-gram serving. This amount of protein will help you stay full and focused between meals. And remember, healthy protein is crucial for building strong bones and muscles. For reference, you should get at least 10% of your daily calories from protein.
PB2 also contains higher levels of the minerals potassium and phosphorus. Like protein, both of these minerals are important for building strong bones and muscles. For reference, Original PB2 contains 145 mg of potassium and 75 mg of phosphorus per 13-gram serving, while Chocolate PB2 contains 123 mg of potassium and 61 mg of phosphorus per 13-gram serving. The average adult should take in at least 700 mg of phosphorus and 3,500 mg of potassium daily.
Additionally, all PB2 products contain no GMOs. They also are kosher, vegan, and gluten-free, so no matter your dietary preferences, you can make PB2 work for you.
