  • Smuckers Simply Fruit spreads

    Peach | Jam, Jelly, & Preserves | Smucker's Products | Smucker's
    Blueberry | Jam, Jelly, & Preserves | Smucker's Products | Smucker's

    thoughts on using this every so often with eggs or other things?

    I love blueberry with chicken for some reason.

    Be careful with things like "fruit syrup and natural flavors". They can be very misleading. Grok On!

      I just through up a little in my mouth.

      Smuckers?

      What happened to avoiding processed foods?

        I knew the question by reading the title. No. just No. If Smucker's Jam is now primal, I'm outta here. Meats and veggies and natural fats, people. It's not hard.

            And, in the ingredients list, the "fruit syrup" comes before the actual fruit. "Natural flavors" can include sugar. Hey, it's a "natural" product, right?

            So, just eat the fruit or make it into a smoothie. You don't need all that other stuff.

              Processed food--NO!

              If you like blueberry with chicken, then buy fresh blueberries and mash them or however you like them with your chicken.

                making your own fruit compotes/reductions for dishes and what not is super easy and way better for you.

                  I'm a bit sceptical to the fruit syrup also. If possible, I would try to get hold of some actual fruit and berries and have that with my meal instead.

                    There's nothing wrong with eating something out of a jar if you truly enjoy it. However, I think you should treat yourself to something a step above smuckers.
                    My favourite jam is crofter's: Welcome to Crofter's Organic! (I find it at whole foods, or zehrs if you live in canada)
                    This is also good: :: Welcome to St.Dalfour - Naturally Versatile :: (I find it at safeway, but I think it's pretty high in sugar)

                      Sugar (whether added or 'naturally' derived from concentrating it out of the fruit itself) is a necessary ingredient in preserves, it's what is doing the preserving. In addition to the ingredient list you've got to look at the nutritional info where the sugar will be outed. I can't see how going upscale would make any difference. Eat the Smuckers if you want but it's basically sugar w/ some fruit in it.

                        Added sugar is added sugar. Fruit syrup is another form of added sugar. I have made fruit compotes which are fruit and possibly a little gelatin added for texture. Even that is "sugary" for primal because of all the natural fruit sugars concentrated in it and should be used in moderation.

                          Huh? So, basically anything that tastes good is fine? OK..., but I'm not sure what kind of nutrition / diet / health philosophy that is.

                            By no means do I think processed foods should be a dietary staple, but having jam 'every so often' doesn't sound like that big of a deal to me, even though I personally think smuckers is gross. I understand where everyone else is coming from, but it's also easy to get too worked-up over stuff like this. (I've got an eating disorder, and I always worry when I see other people getting obsessive about food because I don't want them to go over the edge. Ridiculous, I know!)

                              I agree w/ you entirely about being super-obessive (I ate a cheeseburger and fries last week, sshhhh), but if a new person asks if X product is the same as real food and therefore pb-compatible, the answer is, "no" - anything is "fine" once in a while, but that's not the same as the "eat as much as you want of X" category.
