Meridian Smooth Peanut Butter 280g is rich in energy, packed full of protein, and made with 100% nuts. Peanuts are high in protein (25% of their calories come from protein) and perfect for maintaining a healthy diet. Meridian roast organic peanuts in their natural skins, then grind them down until almost (but not quite) smooth.
Meridian peanuts are a rich source of vital essential minerals which are beneficial for heart health and bones, hormone production, digestion, thyroid function and reducing anxiety. Peanuts also contain beneficial amino acids which your body makes into the feel good brain chemical, and helps to reduce blood pressure.
At Meridian, we’re passionate about roasting peanuts with their natural skins still on. This not only locks in valuable fibre, the skins are also rich in resveratrol, an anti-oxidant that is increasingly linked to longevity and this contributes to healthy living.
By law peanut butter must be at least 90% peanuts but at Meridian, we add as little as possible to ensure the true taste. Some of our nut butter products are made with 100% skin-on peanuts and nothing else.
Meridian smooth peanut butter, as with ALL Meridian products, does not use palm oil as an emulsifier. Some manufacturers remove the natural, nutrient-rich oils from nut and seed butters and replace them with palm oil. Meridian are proud to say that since June 2013, all our products are palm oil free.
Meridian Foods are a leading producer of seed and nut butter in the UK for over 30 years. Our factory in North Wales produces over 1000 tonnes of peanut butter per year. We're committed to producing products that taste great and are highly nutritious as well.
