Did you know that the law requires peanut butter contain at least 90% peanuts, with no artificial sweeteners, colors or preservatives? Natural peanut butter is just peanuts, salt, and occasionally peanut oil. If you prefer natural peanut butter, you should store it upside down in the refrigerator. Doing so forces the oil to settle on the bottom of the jar which makes it much easier to mix. Of course, be sure to seal the jar before turning it upside down!
When companies make non-natural peanut butter, they usually add about 7% sweeteners, a little salt, and a stabilizer to keep the peanut butter fresh and the oil from separating.
