Mother Earth has launched its natural peanut butter in Australia. As well as perennial favourites crunchy and smooth peanut butter, there are also innovative superfood blends, Chia Seed Natural Peanut Butter and LSA Blend Natural Peanut Butter.
Mother Earth’s natural peanut butter is made with Hi-Oleic Australian peanuts* which have a higher level of a healthier mono-unsaturated fats than standard peanuts. The range also has no additives, no preservatives and no added oils or sugar. It is now on shelves at Woolworths Supermarkets around Australia.
Children’s food author and television host Alice Zaslavsky says quality peanut butter like the Mother Earth range makes a delicious snack at any time and can be used in a huge array of recipes, from Asian sauces and curries to dressings for salads and vegetables.
“I love that the classic smooth and crunchy peanut butters have absolutely nothing added except a pinch of salt," she said.
"And the unique superfood blends are a taste and textural sensation as well as a great way to enjoy even more goodness with your morning toast or smoothie. Mother Earth peanut butters are a simple, natural and delicious addition to any kitchen.”
Alice recommends mixing crunchy peanut butter with honey and spreading on fresh wholewheat sourdough bread for an afternoon tea treat, or spreading Mother Earth superfood peanut butter on celery stalks for a wholesome and affordable snack anytime.
"You can tell Mother Earth peanut butter is all natural because the oil from the peanuts rises to the top of the jar. It not only keeps the texture lovely and silky but it's a sure sign there’re no preservatives or additives."
