Being a meticulous health conscious consumer, I LOVE discovering new companies who create products that are pure - simple - organic - nutrient rich - and delicious! I also look for products that are both gluten & dairy free with low unrefined sugars.
I was recently introduced to Futters Nut Butters and this company puts new meaning into 'simple' and 'healthy'!!! Are you familiar? Futters Nut Butters is a locally based company in Illinois which I loved hearing. I think it's so important for all of us to support our local stores both online and otherwise. Please go check out their over 25 products!
In their own words....At Futter’s Nut Butters, Inc., our mission is to provide a pure, simple and delectable food product to the health conscious consumer. We are also a safe option for those people with health concerns who are seeking the positive effects of purely natural foods.
Pure and made to order, Futters Nut Butters products are produced in a gluten, diary and peanut free facility. Each jar is packed in recyclable glass jars to assure freshness and purity. Moreover, we only grind one nut/seed a day taking caution to help eliminate any cross contamination between products. We offer organic and natural options and we are also kosher certified.
What I was most surprised by when I received their Macadamia Butter was the ingredient list itself! ONE INGREDIENT! Seriously. There is one ingredient....the macadamia nut itself. How amazing is that! What you are eating truly is pure goodness for your body. I am hooked!
As I was learning about the company itself, I realized how much environmental & healthy thoughtfulness was put into their overall delivery. For one, Futters Nut Butters are made in a gluten-free, dairy-free and peanut free facility. Most 'natural' products are not so, this is a gigantic plus for me personally. Secondly, Futters Nut Butters does not use palm oil in their products. This is a HUGE HEALTH BENEFIT. I was told specifically by one of their employees "We're really sensitive to the massive deforestation that's going on in Indonesia as a result of palm oil production, and we do everything we can to maintain an environmentally conscious product". Thirdly, the variety is vast for any and all palettes: Walnut Butter, Macadamia Nut Butter, Cashew Butter, Pecan Butter, Pistachio Butter, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Almond Butter, Hazelnut Butter, Brazil Nut Butter, Sunflower Seed Butter. So, they have all of our taste buds covered!
One of my favorite aspects of the Futters Nut Butters website is that they include numerous recipes to help us out with ideas of how to eat the nut butters! And all of these recipes are FREE! So generous.
As for the Macadamia Butter specifically, it is so creamy, rich and delicious! And if you weren't aware, the macadamia nut is backed with potassium, magnisium, calcium and of course, fiber! Healthy goodness! I have spread this on crackers, gluten free bagels for guests & as a butter substitute in a batch of macadamia & oatmeal cookies! Unreal! Yum!
Lastly, these nut butters are so well priced. I was actually floored at their reasonable prices.
Head over to Futters Nut Butters to sample some of their decadent & delish products! You can order directly from their site! P.S. These are really fun stocking stuffers & house warming gifts for the holidays- it's not too late!
