Peanut Butter Without Palm Oil ~ List of Palm Oil Free Peanut Butter

Updated:

If you are looking for palm oil free peanut butter, you know it can be difficult.

Companies use “No Stir” labels as a marketing strategy. They add palm oil so the peanut butter spreads easily. Many larger companies who label their peanut butter as “organic” and “all natural” use palm oil.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated that palm oil is not a healthy substitute for trans-fats, yet palm oil consumption continues to rise.

Kroger Natural Peanut Butter

A reader made a suggestion in the Comments about Kroger’s Natural Peanut Butter as being palm oil free and an inexpensive option.

They don’t add oils, stabilizers, preservatives, or sugars. Their Natural Peanut Butter line contains only two ingredients: Roasted Peanuts and Salt.

Easy-to-find at Kroger stores, this is an accessible brand.

In addition, in the past we’ve contacted Kroger about some of their other products. We asked them about the source of some of their ingredients.

While most large companies avoid answering questions about palm oil, Kroger took extra steps to get us the information we asked for and were transparent about it. They asked their product development teams for the answers. They went above and beyond what other large companies have done.

Choosing palm oil free peanut butter

Thank you to these companies for making these lines of peanut butter without palm oil.

We looked at lists of alternate names for palm oil derivatives — there are over 500 names. To the best of our knowledge, the ones listed above are palm oil free.

We are in the process of contacting these peanut butter manufacturers to confirm their peanut butters are palm oil free. We will continue to update when we hear back from them.

How to find peanut butter without palm oil

1.) Avoid “no stir” labeling.

Peanut butter companies who use palm oil may highlight “no stir” on their labels. They are trying to make it seem like it’s a good thing.

This means there aren’t oils to keep it together; the fat from the peanuts naturally separate to the top. This is okay. You just have to mix it.

We await the day when marketing for peanut butter and other products includes “no palm oil” labeling as industry-wide advertising.

See all the work the International Palm Oil Free Certification Accreditation Programme is doing to highlight palm oil free products with their “No Palm Oil” Certification labeling.

As stated above, Wild Friends earned this certification for making nut butters and peanut butter without palm oil.

In addition, Spread the Love promotes “Palm Oil Free” on their labels, recognizing the significance of this.

2.) Watch out for Mono- and Diglycerides.

These ingredients are typically made from palm oil. They are emulsifiers that manufacturers use to stabilize foods, such as peanut butter, mayonnaise, ice cream, baked goods, margarine, and others.

In nut butters, companies use mono- and diglycerides to prevent the oils from separating.

3.) Read all ingredient labels.

You might think because it’s advertised as “natural” or “organic” that it’s superior to labels without these claims. These natural and organic peanut and nut butters often contain palm oil.

4.) Look for peanut butter that needs to be refrigerated.

When there are hydrogenated oils added to peanut butter, it increases shelf-life and doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

5.) The less ingredients, the better.

When you have peanuts and salt, what more do you need? You won’t miss added sugar when you have your PB&J.

Even better? Eat it with already-sweet fruit or mix in some honey.

10 thoughts on “Peanut Butter Without Palm Oil ~ List of Palm Oil Free Peanut Butter”

  1. This is not true. Skippy does contain Palm oil – it is right there in their “natural” peanut butter ingredients. Maybe companies also like Peter Pan – put hydrogenated vegetable oil but after checking online, it is crystal clear that the same jar ingredients has palm oil which is not stated on the jar.
    One of the largest non palm oil peanut butters is Teddy which is not listed.

    • Hi Jeremy,
      Thank you for being a proactive consumer. Yes, it’s true that unfortunately, some of Skippy’s peanut butter lines do contain palm oil. In this article, we are NOT supporting their “Natural” lines.

      We very much support companies who don’t use palm oil at all; however, we know for the majority of consumers, convenience, accessibility and price are factors.

      Therefore, we are glad at least that a few of Skippy’s brands are palm oil free. This is why we have included them in this post.

      Thank you for the info on Teddy. We will research and contact them and will hope to include them in this list. Thank you for supporting products without palm oil!

  2. What about Crazy Richards? That wasn’t mentioned and the only thing it contains is peanuts! What is your reason for not mentioning Crazy Richards?

    • Hello Diane,
      Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on this post.

      We had never heard of Crazy Richard’s and are happy to include their peanut butter without palm oil and other nut butters on this list.

      Thank you for letting us know about it. It seems this brand is available in some grocery store chains, not just health food stores, which makes it much more accessible.

      The more people learn about how companies use palm oil in products, the easier it is for them to choose alternative brands that don’t contain it.

      Thank you again!

  3. A big brand you missed containing only peanuts and salt (and also one of the cheapest) is Kroger natural – either creamy or chunky.

    • Thank you for taking the time to write with this helpful suggestion. We will check with Kroger to be sure and hope to have them added in soon. It’s so great there are convenient choices when it comes to finding peanut butter without palm oil. We can make simple choices that will make a difference. Thanks!

  4. Santa Cruz peanut butter added palm oil to their peanut butter line. Apparently they still have the original butter with peanuts & salt in various roasts. Just noticed a couple weeks ago @ Sprouts. When I was at Sprouts, they only had this new “No Stir” stuff. Called Santa Cruz to ask what’s up – they added Palm Oil due to “Consumer Demand”.

    • Thank you for this information and for taking the time to comment. Thank you also for calling Santa Cruz to ask about their peanut butter.

      No stir… yet another marketing tactic! Santa Cruz: Consumers “demand” No Stir Without Palm Oil.

      It’s a great reminder to read labels every time. Thank you for being so proactive.

  5. I checked to see what the makers of JIF say about palm oil and here is what I found, but I need help evaluating the information they provide. Can someone help me with this?

    • Hi, thank you for writing and for sharing this information. Many companies have a palm oil statement because it’s important for them to say they are using sustainable palm oil.

      Please research the RSPO and what experts say about them and their organization. There is a lot of controversy. Also, many believe even using sustainable palm oil still drives overall demand for the product.

      Our focus is on products without any palm oil, sustainable or not. We work hard to avoid it and wanted to direct consumers to products without it to make it easier for them to find. We also want to acknowledge and support the companies who have found ways to not use palm oil.

      Thank you for being an informed and proactive consumer! If you have additional questions or comments, we welcome them. Thanks again.
