SunButter: the perfect alternative to peanut butter

Living without peanut butter is one of the toughest parts of having a peanut allergy. It's versatile, a nutritious source of protein, and, worst of all, it's ubiquitous - especially for children.

Fortunately, it's also easily replaced with SunButter, a completely nut-free peanut butter alternative. Great-tasting SunButter stands on its own as a nutritious and delicious food (it's not a "substitute" that makes you wish for the real thing) and is available in creamy, crunchy and organic varieties.

Made in America

Made in the USA from specially roasted sunflower seeds, SunButter was developed by SunGold Foods, a company that controls the manufacturing process from start to finish. As lower-quality sunflower kernels from exporters began to flood the market in the late 1990s, SunGold's parent company Red River Commodities invested in specialized production and created a peanut-free and tree-nut free environment to manufacture what became known as SunButter.

Nut-Free and Nutritious

When you purchase SunButter, you not only buy a product that is nut-free from the soil to your shelf, you also support American jobs and domestic manufacturing.

And check out SunButter's nutritional value compared to peanut butter (per 2 tbsp serving):

  • One-third less saturated fat
  • 27 percent of a day's recommended allowance of vitamin E
  • More iron
  • More fiber
  • Same amount of protein

SunButter is available in a variety of flavors

Where to Buy

SunButter can be purchased online or at grocery chains and health food stores. It is used in many school lunch programs, including at those schools that have decided to be peanut-free and tree-nut free.

Note: All SunButter® products are made on equipment that processes soybeans. Products are made in a peanut-free and tree nut-free facility.
