Artisana’s raw butters are effectively purees of the nut upon which they’re based on. This raw organic almond butter is no different. Being a macrobiotic, this simple but valuable product is a good source of protein, calcium, and iron. The company goes out of its way to use live foods that preserve the nutritious content of the nut as much as possible. The only ingredient in this butter is organic raw almonds – no preservatives, pesticides, artificial colorings, or flavor enhancers. Because of this, the naturally occurring almond oil might sometimes separate and float on top of the butter. A few quick stirs will restore the almond butter to a single, creamy substance ready to be spread on bread or added to your cooking.
This butter is certified organic by the USDA and by Quality Assurance International. It is also a kosher and gluten-free product that does not contain peanuts or soy, though the vegan facility where the almond butter is processed also handles tree nuts.
