PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter 6.5 oz. (184 g)
Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is peanut butter's second generation because it's unlike any peanut butter you've ever experienced. Through a unique process that doesn't involve the use of any chemicals and doesn't alter nature's intended balance found within the peanut, Bell Plantation has removed over 85% of the fat from premium quality peanuts. Essentially, the oil is squeezed out of roasted peanuts and what remains is the famous powdered peanut butter - all natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. When you mix water or a favorite drink with PB2, you get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter, with all the roasted peanut flavor, but 85% less fat calories.

Achieving great things with the humble peanut
Peanut butter has always been a staple for the health conscious and the physically active. But as it turns out, even peanut butter can be improved. Since PB2 was developed from a process no other peanut butter shares, it offers benefits unlike any other peanut butter. You won't find another brand with 85% less fat calories.
And while other peanut butters can claim to be reduced fat, albeit with higher fat content with PB2, they can't claim to reduce fat through a chemical-free process. Bell Plantation can. As with all Bell Plantation products, PB2 and Chocolate PB2 are all-natural, preservative free and contain no artificial sweeteners. And that makes them a sweet alternative for active lifestyles, dieters, and moms who want healthy snacks for their kids.
Beneficial to farmers and consumers
Bell Plantation believes that the family farm is the foundation of this country. While nature and the whims of a commodity-based industry often seem to conspire against the American farmer, its low-priced competition on the other side of the world that puts American farmers at greatest risk. Because of a lower cost of living, a farmer on the international market can sell his crop for up to 5 times less than his American counterpart. According to the USDA, the average return for an American farmer is less than one percent of his total investment. Simply raising prices is an unacceptable solution for the American consumer; finding an acceptable solution and viable alternatives is what Bell Plantation was created to do.
Bell Plantation was founded in 1991 by J.C. and Jo Bell as an agricultural research company. Spurred on by the need to improve profitability for family farmers, Bell Plantation is devoted to rethinking the uses of traditional farming products. Key to the company's goals is the development of consumer-ready products from commodities grown on the farm. And that's how PB2 was created - an excellent answer to a significant peanut surplus. When you buy Bell Plantation Products, you're choosing flavorful, healthy innovation that is good for you, your family and for America's family farms.
