Welcome to the site, my 18 month old is PA and this site has been so helpful to me. It is scary the ignorance some people have towards life threatening allergies. Take care

Hi Brian (and family). Welcome to the board. Have you known about your son's allergy for a while? or is this relatively new information?
Hope all is well.

Hi DJ's mom! I am in Canada, and I have seen Pea butter here. Haven't tried it yet, but it is in most supermarkets. Try checkeing out the link for Manufacturers...
you might find some info there
We have tried Sunbutter - its great!
And IM Healthy Soy Nut butter products are excellent.
Good luck [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My 4 year old peanut allergic son eats this product all the time, so its O.K., as long as you are not avoiding all legumes. I have heard that some peanut allergic people will have an aversion to the smell and/or taste of this product because it is so similar to the real thing.
It tastes quite a bit like peanut butter, especially of you eat it with jam or honey. It really gives you the texture and stickiness of peanut butter. It also works for baking (ie. peabutter cookies).

I am in the US and have never heard of peabutter. I assume it's made out of peas? My son loves Sunbutter. Our local supermarket only carries the natural. I wish they carried all the varities because we got thru that one pound jar in a hurry! :lol

I buy my Peabutter on-line at [url="http://www.jsfoods.us"]www.jsfoods.us[/url] Also got great recipes. My family loves it better than any other of the PB subs. The one you buy on-line from the U.S. company tastes better than the one found in Canada. Found out it's a better receipe. Soy free also.
Hope this helps
