DO I NEED TO REFRIGERATE JIF PEANUT BUTTER?
Jif Peanut Butter does not require refrigeration.
WHAT IS PALM OIL AND HOW IS IT SOURCED?
Jif Natural Peanut Butter Spread contains palm oil, which is derived from the fruit of a palm tree. Palm oil is an alternative stabilizer. We recognize and share the concerns related to palm oil sourcing and the environment. We remain committed to working only with suppliers who are responsible and who share the same commitments to quality and ethics as we do.
WHY DOES JIF NATURAL PEANUT BUTTER SPREAD SAY "NO NEED TO STIR" ON THE LABEL?
Jif Natural Peanut Butter Spread is made from five 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.
DOES JIF PEANUT BUTTER AND OMEGA-3 DHA & EPA CONTAIN FISH INGREDIENTS?
Jif Peanut Butter and Omega-3 DHA & EPA 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.
