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

If you are looking for palm oil free peanut butter, just be sure to read labels. You will find it. Companies use “No Stir” labels as a marketing strategy. Others may use “No Need to Stir.”

This advertising on labels means there is palm oil in the product. It will be listed in the ingredients as Palm Oil &/or Mono- & Diglycerides.

Peanut butter manufacturers add palm oil so their peanut butter spreads easily. Many larger companies who label their peanut butter as “Organic” and “All Natural” use palm oil as well.

Peanut butter companies can’t use artificial trans fats in their products because the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) banned them. Many peanut butter companies have turned to palm oil. 

At times, it will say Palm Oil on labels. Other times it may list Mono- & Diglycerides, which in peanut butter are typically derived from palm oil.

These products will be next to each other on store shelves. Peanut butter spreads will contain palm oil plus many other ingredients. Read the front of the peanut butter jar to see if it’s peanut butter or a spread.

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. However, it is not guaranteed. The only way to know for sure is if the peanut butter manufacturers apply for Palm Oil Free certification. 

How to find peanut butter without palm oil

no stir equals palm oil in peanut butter
“No Stir” is marketing for This Contains 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 store our peanut butter upside down. Just make sure to thoroughly seal the lid. This makes it easy to stir.

2.) Buy certified Palm Oil Free peanut butter.

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.

Orangutan Alliance is another organization which certifies products as Palm Oil Free.

As consumers, we can encourage companies to certify their products Palm Oil Free. We can also look for this labeling and buy products with it. 

In addition, Spread the Love promotes “Palm Oil Free” on their labels, recognizing the significance of this, though they aren’t officially certified.

Read labels and look for Palm Oil Free.

3.) Watch out for Mono- and Diglycerides.

These ingredients are typically made from palm oil in peanut butter and nut butter products. Mono- and Diglycerides 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. We avoid all products with Mono- & Diglycerides because very rarely will the company spell out their source.

4.) Don’t buy peanut butter Spreads.

Read the front of the jar to see how the company describes the product.

Peanut butter spreads contain palm oil ingredients.

In addition to having Palm Oil, peanut butter spreads contain many more ingredients than just peanuts and salt.

5.) Read all ingredient labels.

You might think because it’s advertised as “Natural” or “Organic” that it’s superior to labels without these claims. It’s important to note:

These Natural and Organic peanut and nut butters often contain palm oil.

6.) 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.

Note: There are also peanut butters without palm oil that do not say to refrigerate.

7.) 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 fresh fruit or mix in some pure honey, etc.

Peanut butter in desserts

You’ll find premade desserts with peanut butter will most always contain palm oil. Make them at home and use peanut butter with just peanuts and salt. Use it to make peanut butter bars, cookies, pies, and more. You can even make a peanut butter milkshake. Yum!

Peanut butter in sandwiches

Of course you’ll want to read labels on bread and pb when making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Learn what to look for!

  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!

    • 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Hi. Just looked some up on Amazon and WF 365 creamy has palm oil in it. 🙁 There don’t seem to be any cost effective forms of safe PB at all. Most can it afford $12 jars of peanut butter. It’s really disheartening that eco-friendly means costly. We can’t have dairy or soy and I want to buy green, but we’re priced out in a lot of areas sadly. We just can not afford it.

    • Thank you for letting us know about the palm oil in Whole Foods 365 peanut butter. We will make it clearer on our post to spell out which one to choose. Their 365 Everyday Value doesn’t contain palm oil but their 365 Organic peanut butter does contain it.

      Thank you for reading the label before just putting it in your cart! Sadly, companies change their ingredients (to cheaper ingredients) often.

      You will likely have more affordable options if you buy palm oil free peanut butter at the store instead of online. You will find many jars for $4 – $6, depending on the store and brand. Especially during these times, it seems Amazon’s prices are higher for pantry staples than getting them in the store. Just avoid “no stir” labeling which contains palm oil. Read the ingredients to be sure they only include peanuts and salt, and you will find some.

      Thanks for your interest in palm oil free peanut butter and for taking the time to comment! We want to make it easy to find peanut butter without palm oil.

  6. Whole Foods/365 Creamy Peanut Butter now contains palm oil. The last jar I recently bought contained only peanuts, however the Whole Foods website now shows the addition of palm oil.

    • Thank you for the update. I removed these from the list:
      Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Creamy Peanut Butter
      Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Crunchy Peanut Butter
      The ingredients used to be Dry Roasted Peanuts and Salt. 

      The only one I see now on their site that contains just peanuts and no palm oil is:
      Organic Creamy Peanut Butter Unsweetened and No Salt, 16 oz

      This seems like a brand to avoid unless you read labels diligently before purchasing.

    • I haven’t seen Reese’s Peanut Butter in stores. However, when I looked it up online, I found the ingredients for Reese’s Creamy Peanut Butter (18 oz). Among the eight ingredients (!!!) it contains, one of them is Monoglycerides. My bet is this ingredient is derived from Palm Oil.
