Best Almond Butter

Posted by Naturally Nutty on 6/22/2014

If you're looking for the best almond butter, there are a few guidelines you can use to evaluate different products. You can look at the ingredients, the manufacturing process, the recipe, reviews and rewards and most importantly, the taste, to come to a final conclusion.

We'll start with the raw ingredients.

Almonds from California are known for their high quality and unique, consistent flavor. The same cannot be said for imported almonds. Make sure the brand you are considering clearly states the origin of their almonds.

Next, check to see if the almonds were organically grown or if they've been subjected to synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. You'll definitely taste the difference.

Another factor to consider is the manufacturing process. How long were the almonds sitting around before being made into almond butter? Is the nut butter processed in small batches or is it mass-produced in huge quantities in a big facility? Are the almond skins included in the final product or have they been removed for one reason or another by extra processing? All of these factors will make a difference in both the taste and nutritional content of the final product.

Now let’s look at the almond butter recipe. The first consideration is are the almonds raw or have they been dry roasted? Some people prefer one and some the other. The next consideration is whether the texture is smooth and creamy or is it chunky? This is another personal preference.  Our Naturally Nutty organic almond butter is made from dry roasted almonds and blended to a smooth, home-style consistency, and has been extremely popular with our customers.

Once you've narrowed down the playing field by removing any brands that don’t fit your criteria for ingredients, manufacturing or recipe, it's time for the taste test. Katie Kearney created Nutty Organic Almond Butter when she couldn't find an almond butter that tasted great and satisfied the nutritional requirements of her family.

Now her northern Michigan company creates small batches of creamy home-style organic almond butter with fresh, organic California almonds, adding in organic flax and hemp seeds to boost the nutritional value.

On top of that, voted Best All Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Naturally Nutty’s organic creamy peanut butter in an independent taste test. Our signature organic almond butter is just as delicious.
