5. Should peanut butter be avoided because it is high in trans fat?
>> View answer

No. Based on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations about trans fat labeling, peanut butter would declare ZERO (0) grams trans fat per serving.

6. What is the difference between regular Jif peanut butter and Jif Natural peanut butter spread?
>> View answer

Based on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, peanut butter must contain at least 90% peanuts. Also, natural sweeteners, salt and stabilizers, such as hydrogenated oil, can be used in peanut butter and can be found in regular Jif peanut butter products. Jif Natural peanut butter spread is classified as a peanut butter spread because, although it contains 90% peanuts, it is stabilized with palm oil, which is outside of the definition for regular peanut butter.

7. What is palm oil and how is it sourced?
>> View answer

Jif Natural peanut butter spread contains palm oil, which is derived from the fruit of a palm tree. Palm oil is naturally sourced and an alternative stabilizer. We recognize and share the concerns related to palm oil sourcing and the environment. We remain committed to working with only suppliers that are responsible and share the same commitments to quality and ethics that we do.

8. Why does Jif Natural peanut butter spread say "No Need To Stir" on the label?
>> View answer

Jif Natural peanut butter spread is made from five simple ingredients and stabilized with palm oil to prevent oil separation. However, since it is made from all natural ingredients, minimal oil separation may be possible.

9. Does Jif Omega-3 Peanut Butter contain fish ingredients?
>> View answer

Jif Omega-3 peanut butter uses an encapsulated fish oil source that contains both EPA and DHA. The encapsulation process keeps the DHA/EPA locked in, while keeping the smell and taste of fish out of the peanut butter. However, we encourage individuals to consult their medical professional if they have specific allergy concerns.

10. What is Jif To Go peanut butter?
>> View answer

Jif To Go peanut butter is the same great Jif peanut butter as in a jar, but available in updated portable packaging. Jif To Go Peanut Butter is placed in the right-size cup for taking peanut butter on the go! It is easy to pack, part of a balanced diet and a good source of protein.
