Better Butter

It’s official: nut butter is booming (or should we say spreading?). Sales in this category have grown by an astonishing 80% since 2011, following an explosion in consumer demand for healthy, natural products.

With the humble peanut butter already the UK’s third most-loved spread (behind honey and jam), the rise of peanut butter along with almond, cashew and hazelnut butters correlates directly with the growth in consumption of healthy protein. This increase is driven in no small part, we’re sure, by customers looking for a tasty post-workout pick-me-up.

Ancient Spread

But, aside from the obvious health benefits, what is it about nut butters that are make them so popular?  Turns out, they’re good for more than just protein rich smoothies and breakfast toast. Nut butter snack bars, nut butter sauces, nut butter ice cream and even nut butter dog chews! Versatility is the name of the game.
