Just look at the ingredients. The fewer the better.
Is there certain almond butters that are worse than others?
Eh, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just make sure your almond butter has no added sugar or, heaven forbid, trans fat. Any other difference between brands is likely negligible, at best.
Remember, you are unique just like everybody else.
I always buy the 26-oz jars of Maranatha brand at Costco for $5-something. Best deal around.
I get mine ground fresh at a local market. Nothing by fresh roasted almonds in it.
almonds and salt (optional). nothing else.
do you guys prefer your almond butter from roasted almonds or raw?....I know in theory raw is more primal b/c you don't know who did the roasting and if it was at higher than preferred heats (therefore effecting the oil), but what do you like? Are the flavors real different? Which do you prefer?
