The research in support of peanuts and peanut butter as a regular part of your healthy eating habits is overwhelmingly positive. Peanuts bring protein, good fats, and important nutrients like niacin, vitamin E, folate, and fiber to the plate, just to name a few. Yet, when you read about peanut butter, there are often statements that urge you to avoid those that contain added or hydrogenated fat and that can be confusing. This is especially true if you’re among the majority of consumers who prefer peanut butter that doesn’t separate at room temperature, which is prevented by the addition of these fats. What’s a peanut butter lover to do? In this article, we’ll take a deep dive into the fat in peanut butter to help you understand just why you don’t have to fret so much about what’s in your peanut butter, no matter which kind you choose to eat.

There’s little room for the word “try” in Krystina Murawski’s vocabulary. Born and raised in Westchester County, NY, Murawski says she always gives 110 percent to everything that she does. “I've always been an all or nothing person. I'm either full throttle or no throttle.”
Combine this go-getter attitude with Murawski’s self-described obsession with peanut butter and you have “Noomi” (pronounced “new me”). She launched the brand in April 2018 after working fervently on her own, with friends and an executive chef mentor, Leslie Lampert, to find the right balance of ingredients for what would soon become Noomi organic peanut butter. She made—literally—over 100 different peanut butter recipes before deciding on a simple but revolutionary blend of organic dry roasted peanuts, organic Deglet Noor dates, grapeseed oil, peanut oil and Atlantic sea salt.
