    That's probably why it's so good - it is our go-to superfood/power food when in the region. A couple of table spoons of that and you're ready to climb Mount Mulanje barefoot.
    Saved our arses big time once when we had a breakdown in shifta (bandit) country in north-eastern Kenya and the military-escorted convoy we were part of couldn't stop. In record time, I jury-rigged a fix on a buggered swivel housing that had split open with the energy half a jar of Tambala gave me.

    I have never really looked at the ingredients on peanut butter, but now reading these comments about the hydrogenated veg oil they add, I will surely not buy any kind that has this or added sugar.

    Just be prepared for a different taste Willem. It takes a few bottles to get used to the new taste. I actually found it easier to move over to the other nut butters and then come back to the sugar free peanut butter after.

    Ja look I don't eat a lot of bread these days (trying to limit my carbs as much as possible) so I will only occasionally have some butter, sommer a spoon full - also my little doggies LOVE it, and it makes me laugh when they struggle with the sticky stuff.

    The one you can afford

    If you eat a lot of peanut butter, you might need to amend your food budget a bit.

    I don't mind spending on peanut butter, it's a pleasure I can't go without. Peanut butter beer would probably be my staple if it existed.

    Black Cat without added salt & sugar. Yellow & red (smooth) or yellow & green label.
    There are probably several other options in the healthy foods sections of supermarkets, Food Lovers Market and Dischem etc available. Just read the ingredients.

    Yeah same here, I eat it by the ton. But an 800 g bottle lasts me about 10 days @ about R60 bucks. I cannot justify paying the same for a small bottle and I am not sure as larry not going to eat less PB. Maybe next year when school fees are off our payroll.

    Besides the 'bad oils' does not seem to have any effect on my weight nor my cholesterol so I will continue with Woolworths' No sugar no Salt or Yum-Yum if on special or big bottles.

    You see, this is where the discussion becomes interesting. Especially if we start comparing food labels. Then we enter a very complicated maze.

    I googled the label for Black Cat no sugar, no salt version and compared to my WW bottle.

    1. What would the 'Stabilizer' be in the Black Cat? WW version has palm fruit oil.
    2. WW version carb is 13 g compared to BC's 21 g.
    3. WW version has 5.9g of sugar/ BC has 6.1g. Not that big a difference.
    4. WW version has 6.3g of saturated fat, BC has 7.1 g. This is important to me and why I would rather opt for the WW one based on this alone. Saturated fat is bad news for cholesterol suffers.
    5. WW has 0 mg cholesterol, BC lists theirs as < 5 mg.

    Attached is the Black Cat label.

    Having a quick google - this is what the E471 stabilizer is in black cat PNB

    "When it comes to artificial additives to peanut butter (and other nut butters), the most frequently used one is E471, which is a stabiliser. It is a fatty acid that helps emulsify the product and whilst it is usually made from plant sources, such as vegetable oil, it can be produced from animal fats."
