Many people don't know that there is a difference between peanut cream and peanut butter. Peanut butter (more widespread and industrialised) has a high saturated fat content due to the hydrogenated vegetable oils and the way in which the seeds are processed, stripping them of their beneficial properties. It also contains added refined sugar or salt.
Peanut cream, on the other hand, does not contain hydrogenated oils or refined sugar, but is the exclusive result of the grinding process. All the peanuts we use are organic, meaning that our product contains only natural, organic ingredients, with no colours or preservatives, minimising its environmental impact.
Our organic peanut cream is first and foremost a food rich in plant protein. A source of unsaturated fats, i.e. “good fats” for our body, also known as Omega 3 and 6. It also contains elements such as vitamins E and B and minerals (iron, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, but also zinc and copper).
About our organic peanut cream:

Why is there a layer of oil on the surface, separated from the cream below?
This separation is the demonstration of the total absence of emulsifiers inside the jar. The spreadable creams that are smooth and perfectly homogeneous have this aspect thanks to their content of emulsifiers.
Smile Crunch has chosen to produce organic and natural and does not use emulsifiers or preservatives.
To make the precious organic and natural Smile Crunch creams soft and spreadable, simply take a spoon and drill holes in the hardened pasta so that the oil penetrates back into the interior. Then, mix with energy in all directions until the consistency returns to being soft and homogeneous.
What are the differences between an organic product and an industrial product?
Many studies have highlighted how organic foods are better in many ways. In addition to having a greater nutritional intake, they have a minimum quantity of chemical residues compared to industrial products. To underline these differences, research was conducted by the British Journal of Nutrition which highlighted their advantages.
The raw material used in the Smile Crunch creams comes only from organic farming.
The term organic agriculture indicates a method of cultivation and breeding that only allows the use of natural substances, excluding the use of chemical synthesis substances (fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides). Organic farming means developing a production model that avoids the excessive exploitation of natural resources, in particular of the soil, water, and air, using these resources within a sustainable development model that can last over time.
