Is pb2 better for you than peanut butter?
It Has Less Fat Than Regular Peanut Butter. Traditional peanut butter is a rich source of fat, containing 16 grams per two tablespoons, while PB2 contains just 1.5 grams of fat in the same serving (1, 2). However, the fats found in peanuts are predominantly unsaturated and generally considered beneficial for health (9)
We do not recommend premixing PB2. If you do premix, only premix what you will use within 48 hours and be sure to store it covered in the refrigerator.
- One tablespoon of mayonnaise has 90 calories, and if that's all you're using, you're making a relatively healthy choice. "It's high in fat but not saturated fat," says Keri Gans, dietician, nutritionist and author of The Small Change Diet. Mayonnaise at restaurants, Gans says, can get tricky, though.
- Mainly the reason is that store mayonnaise adds water, rather than relying on the moisture in the egg yolks and vinegar. Though cookbooks often say that the ratio of oil to egg yolk is critical, that one can only emulsify a half-cup or cup of oil, this isn't true.
- Mayonnaise that has been continuously refrigerated will generally stay at best quality for about 2 to 3 months after the "Best By" date on the package. The best way is to smell and look at the mayonnaise: if mayonnaise develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, it should be discarded.
Two tablespoons of Jif's natural, creamy peanut butter spread contains 190 calories, 16 grams of fat and 3 grams of sugar. The same amount of Bell Plantation's PB2 has 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 1 gram of sugar. The standalone stats might make you think that peanut butter's powdered version is a dieter's dream.
- In a nutshell (pun intended), PB2 contains roasted peanuts, sugar, salt. It's got 45 calories, 1 gram of fat, 1 g sugar and 5 grams of protein.
- PB2 is made from slow-roasted peanuts that are pressed to remove 85 percent of the fat and calories. Sugar and salt are added to give the roasted peanuts a little bit more flavor. With PB2 you make your own peanut butter by using the ratio of two tablespoons of PB2 powder and one tablespoon of water.
- PB and J is the easiest snack to make. All that's needed is peanut butter, jelly, and bread, that part is pretty self explanatory. Even with the added sugars and fats, PB is still a fairly healthy option, especially if the regular old JIF is replaced with organic PB. Jelly isn't much of a healthy option.

- Although not a perfect test, your senses are usually the most reliable instruments to tell if your foods have gone bad. The first signs of bad pizza are a hard and dry texture, still safe but not too tasty. A spoiled pizza may also give off a rancid odor and become moldy if left too long.
- Properly stored, leftover pizza will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. To further extend the shelf life of leftover pizza, freeze it; freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.
- Place your pizza in the fridge within two hours of preparation, and it will last for up to four days, three days being the recommended shelf life of the average slice. After that, bacteria can begin to grow and lead to food poisoning.
