"Guys: I just tried this other product from southerngracefarms and searched under peanut flour product (basically peanut butter with the oils removed as well) that's also very good. It's MUCH cheaper than the PB2 product....I ordered three 2 lb bags and the total price with shipping was approx. $33 (therefore about $5.50/lb). The package comes in about a week after you order and it's vacuum sealed just like the PB2 pouch. And they also sell larger quantities at slightly steeper discount with little change in shipping. It is just as tasty as PB2 (maybe even a little bit more peanut-ty). The only difference is that this does not have any salt and sugar added like the PB2 product (it's just pure peanut flour) so you may want to add a little salt (maybe even a little honey) to the mixture to suit your taste. So if you find yourself snacking on peanut butter every day to satisfy your peanut butter cravings, go ahead and try this."

There are many healthier foods out there, and for many people, foods like these are triggers to eat more fattening foods. But, for occasional use, if it was only peanuts, i think i'd consider it.

The nutrition label says 1g sugars in 2 Tbsp (12g). Sodium is listed at 94g. http://bellplantation.com/nutrition
I've never tried the PB2, but I've tried Trader Joe's peanut flour, which also has 1g sugars in 2 Tbsp, but 0 sodium. The ingredients: roasted peanuts. Someone will have to explain the sugar thing to me. Why are they the same if one has added sugar and one doesn't?
I recommended this TJ stuff for my mother, who can really put away the peanut butter , and she liked it okay. I guess I just prefer to eat smaller amounts of real peanut butter less often. (Guess that means I'm not a peanut butter addict. ) Most of my package of TJ defatted peanut flour has gone into baking.
Gramma Jackie, I think the TJ stuff might be quite a bit cheaper than the PB2, but there's also a rumor it's being discontinued.
