    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.

    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 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.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    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.
