Butters and spreads made from raw, organic ingredients can add depth to your diet and palate. However, if you’ve ever tried them, I’m sure you have experienced the unpleasant grittiness in some of these products.
If you’re looking for a wonderfully smooth taste and texture in your butters and spreads that preserves all the great nutrition from wholesome ingredients, you may want to give organic, raw stone-ground items a try.
In ancient times, olives were turned into luscious and delicious olive oil by a process called stone-grinding. Stone-grinding applies pressure with powerful, smooth granite wheels.
Why is stone-grinding still used in the modern world today? Not only does it preserve flavor and nutrients by keeping a consistently low temperature throughout the entire grinding process, but the silky and luscious texture created by stone-grinding is simply unbeatable.
A Healthy Alternative to Processed Butters
Maybe you grew up loving peanut butter as a kid or give it to your children today. Peanut butter sandwiches seem to have a special place in lunch boxes around the country.
Plus, this peanut butter fascination doesn’t end with childhood. Candy, ice cream and even some protein shakes and powders contain peanut butter to satisfy that rich, creamy craving.
But you’d be surprised that most people aren’t familiar with what peanut butter really tastes like.
Here’s a breakdown of the ingredient list on a popular peanut butter brand:
- Roasted Peanuts
- Fully hydrogenated vegetable oils (rapeseed and soybean)
- Mono- and diglycerides
Although the ingredient list is fairly short, it contains some of the top most dangerous and harmful ingredients added to processed food.
Roasted Peanuts - The first thing that’s wrong with this main ingredient is it doesn’t specify if the peanuts are dry-roasted or oil-roasted. Either way, the healthiest way to consume this legume is raw and organic.
Sugar - Excess sugar is the primary factor in countless chronic diseases and obesity. Dietary sugars feed harmful intestinal yeasts, fungi and toxic organisms.
Molasses - An extraction process performed on sorghum stalks makes sorghum molasses. Unless the molasses produced is enzyme-treated and heated, it will ferment very rapidly. However, this process "kills" the small amount of vitamins and minerals which pass through the initial extraction process.
Fully hydrogenated vegetable oils (rapeseed and soybean) - This is one of the most harmful ingredients in processed foods. Part of the problem with hydrogenated soybean oil relates to the health hazards of soy itself. An added hazard factor is the fact that the majority of soybeans are genetically engineered. Hydrogenated soybean oil has been linked to over a dozen adverse health effects, from coronary artery disease to cancer, violent behavior and fatty liver disease.
Mono- and diglycerides - Just another clever name used to hide soy derivatives.
Salt - Most likely refined sodium — as opposed to natural salt, which is much lower in sodium.
The harsh reality is, the peanut butter you grew up on is full of fillers and not-so-stellar ingredients.
Here’s a list of ingredients on a popular organic peanut butter:
- Organic, dry roasted peanuts
We’re getting closer. But in my opinion, the absolute best and most beneficial option is to find a stone-ground, raw and unpasteurized nut butter to make sure you’re getting the ultimate nutrition and taste from several different types of nuts.
And I have the perfect solution...
It’s Called “Superfood” for a Reason
My stone-ground Organic Superfood Spread is a delicious, nutritious and completely unique snack that will give you a boost of energy with protein, fiber, and healthy fats.
Stone ground to perfection for over 24 to 48 hours, my Superfood Spread contains a unique combination of:
- Raw almonds - rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, protein and fiber
- Cashews - contain zero cholesterol, high in copper, magnesium and vitamin K
- Sprouted chia seeds - high in protein, omega-3s, fiber and amino acids
- Raw hemp seeds - high in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids; highly digestible
- Goji berries - contain polyphenols and antioxidants that fight free radicals
- Mulberries - rich in iron, riboflavin, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium and calcium
- Coconut sugar - has a naturally low glycemic index
- Himalayan salt - the purest salt available on earth and is uncontaminated with harmful toxins or pollutants
During the stone-grinding process, temperatures are kept below 100 degrees, and in turn, all of the trace minerals, healthy fats, vitamins, and heat-sensitive antioxidants are maintained.
This ensures these premium ingredients transform my Superfood Spread into a smooth, luscious, and beyond creamy snack — truly a spoonful of pure heaven!
Other benefits of my Superfood Spread include:

It’s time to throw out that sugar-filled peanut butter and replace it with something healthy and great-tasting.
My Superfood Spread tastes great on a celery stick, fruit, or even right out of the jar (because it’s that good)! Add it to smoothies, shakes, sauces and even healthy deserts.
And speaking of healthy deserts, there’s one product I absolutely love to add healthy fats, flavor and dimension to any dish...
Sensitive to Dairy? Try This as a Sensational Substitute for Dairy Spreads
Back in the 1930s, a dentist named Dr. Weston A. Price traveled throughout the South Pacific, examining traditional diets and their effect on dental and overall health. He found that those eating diets high in coconut products were healthy and trim, despite the high fat concentration in their diet.
Similarly, in 1981, researchers studied populations of two Polynesian atolls. Coconut was the chief source of caloric energy in both groups. The results, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found no evidence that the high saturated fat intake had a harmful effect in these populations.
I’m always looking for the highest quality, premium products, and my Organic Coconut Butter truly satisfies. Made with only one ingredient, completely raw and unpasteurized, organic coconut flakes are dehydrated to maintain the health benefits of healing fatty acids, such as lauric and caprylic acids.
Stone ground over 24 to 48 hours, all of the healthy fats, trace minerals, vitamins, and heat-sensitive antioxidants in the Coconut Butter are maintained, so they can nourish and fuel your body.
Through the slow churning process, less friction and oxygen means oil molecules are much less likely to become damaged, ensuring a healthful oil instead of one that is rancid or oxidized.
My Coconut Butter is also thoroughly mixed so that it has less oil separation than other butters — making it more convenient, with less mess.
Other benefits of my Organic Coconut Butter include:
- No added sugar
- Fits into any healthy diet: paleo, vegan, raw, low carb
- Made from 100% organic, raw coconut flakes
- No bioengineered ingredients
My Organic Coconut Butter is a great alternative to store-bought non-dairy products. Use it as an instant coconut milk by mixing a few tablespoons of my gently melted Coconut Butter with 16 ounces of pure water or coconut water, and blend.
The options are endless when it comes to putting my Organic Coconut Butter to use. It can be used as a spread, eaten right out of the jar, or mixed into your favorite recipes — sweet or savory! Try it in smoothies, salad dressings, sauces, dips, and spreads. You can even use it topically for smooth, luscious skin!
