Lets be clear: we need fat in our diet, it helps supply energy. Fat provides essential fatty acids for growth, healthy skin and metabolism. It also helps absorb fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K). Some studies have shown that unsaturated fats can actually lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintain HDL (good) cholesterol. Sunspread contains no added saturated fats or any other stabilizer. Just to explain – most peanut butter manufacturers add saturated fats (unhealthy fats) or trans fats to peanut butter so that it doesnt separated. The fats in Sunspread is all natural and from the Sunflower seeds. For this reason, separation will occur in Sunspread – in time, an oily layer will develop on top of the product.
