  • Paleo or not?



    I was wondering if this would fall under paleo??

    Check the ingredients list if it had any other ingredients like sugar (or any of sugars other names) then no. I believe salt is ok. They have almond butters that have no added sugar and it should not have more than 1 or 2 grams of natural sugar listed in nutrition. If it has more than 2 g of sugar then it has added sugar.

      My thing was the whey protein and canola oil

        Wouldn't get it because of the Canola Oil. A trivial amount of sugar or honey I wouldn't worry about, but try to avoid Canola Oil completely while cooking at home. Justin's and Whole Foods 365 Brand both use Palm Oil in their almond butters and cost less too.

          I've been told that flax seed oil and complain oil are both no-no's

              I wouldn't eat that. If you want almond butter, buy raw almonds and make your own. Add salt. Sweeten with honey. You can add cinnamon for flavor too

                I wouldn't be thrilled about the canola oil. Eat whatever you want, but if you want almond butter, I think there are better ones out there that are cheaper, too.

                To answer your question though, yes, if you'd like to play semantics it could be considered primal, but not paleo (because of the whey.)

                  Nope. Not even close.

                    Why would almond butter need canola oil, whey protein, flax seed and sweetener? The only ingredients should be almonds (and perhaps salt). Whether or not its paleo is irrelevant, it is a crappy product.

                      I sometimes eat canola oil just to fit in with my family when they get something store bought, but no, it's not paleo. The whey is fine.

                        And this is very true. It's overpriced too.

                          Try this one I've seen them at mayor grocery stores.



                          Ingredients:
                          100% organic raw almonds.

                            Guess what "natural extract" is. That's right. You know exactly what it is.
