There’s something so delightfully moreish about creamy spreads like peanut butter. Whether on toast, a crisp stick of celery or a delicious addition to a sweet treat - nut butters are a staple for many of us. But what if allergies, dietary restrictions or health concerns stop you from consuming nut butters? Do you have to miss out? Luckily, thanks to Beyond The Equator, you don’t.
The Smart Alternative To Nut Butter
You may have heard of seed butter in the past, believing it to be suited only to those with nut allergies or health concerns. The reality is that seed butter, especially our 5 Seed Butter, is a nutritional powerhouse suitable for just about everyone.
For households with someone who has a peanut allergy, this is the safe, delicious alternative the whole family can enjoy without any risk.
This also makes them an ideal substitute for school lunches as schools prohibit common allergens from being brought onto the premises. 5 Seed Butter is completely peanut and tree-nut free.
5 Seed Seed Butter also:
- Has a higher protein content and lower carb content than nut butters.
- Contains no sesame seeds, another common allergen.
- Is similar texture and consistency to nut butters, so an ideal substitute in recipes and as a spread.
- Is low in sugar and dairy-free.
- Is Vegan.
Seed Butters Vs Nut Butters
Allergens aside, seed butter is a much better choice with regards to protein content, carb content and sugar than leading peanut butter brands. It makes the ideal keto-friendly peanut butter alternative, since peanut butter is high in carbohydrates and not recommended on the ketogenic diet. Its high protein content is just another reason it’s perfect for those ‘going keto’.
Our handy comparison shows clearly that when you compare seed butter vs nut butters, seed butter is the better choice. Regardless of whether it's almond butter or peanut butter, 5 Seed Butter is the ideal no-nut, allergy friendly butter.
Worth a mention also, is that 5 Seed Butter has around half the saturated fats as peanut butter. Excessive saturated fats are the leading cause of high cholesterol and pose a real risk to your health if consumed regularly.
5 Seed Butter is high in good fats - specifically Omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to positively correlate to brain and heart function, the two organs that most affect the rest of your body. With a high rate of both mental health and heart health problems in the U.S., our 5 Seed Butter — and the omega-3s that come with it — is one way to help fight these epidemics.
