Why Purchase Dried PB2
If you’ve never purchased dehydrated peanut butter, you are probably wondering a few things about what it is, how to store it, and what else you can use it for.
What Is Dehydrated Peanut Butter?
PB2 is a brand of dried peanut butter. Dried peanut butter is basically peanut butter that has been dehydrated (which means its natural oils have been removed), and then it’s ground into a powder.
You don’t need to purchase the PB2 brand to make these overnight oats, you can use any brand of powdered peanut butter you like or that is available to you.
I love using this product because powdered peanut butter is a form of natural protein, which tastes great – unlike protein powders that have a grainy texture or distinct aftertaste.
Shelf-stable peanut butter is known to have trans fat. Trans fat is a type of fat that can cause inflammation, increase your LDL cholesterol and lower your HDL cholesterol.
Powdered peanut butter has no trans fat and is low in calories because the fat has been removed but the quality protein remains.
If you don’t have dehydrated peanut butter powder and want to avoid trans fat, use natural peanut butter instead of shelf-stable peanut butter. Natural peanut butter only has one ingredient – peanuts – and won’t have any additives like inflammatory omega 6 rich oils. The only ingredient on its ingredient list should be peanuts.
How To Store PB2
Dehydrated peanut butter contains very little fat and therefore doesn’t need to be stored in the refrigerator.
You can store it in your pantry and be sure to use it within the year. If you want maximum freshness, you can always freeze it, just like I do with my linseed and flaxseed.
