Hi Vic, I've been using this product for my non-pa kids for a while now. I don't give it to Wade yet because at 3 he's still to young to know the difference between Soy Nut Butter and Peanut Butter. The product is similar in consistancy and colour to peanut butter, even tastes similar. Nice alternative to peanut butter but I would also hesitate sending it tp school in a lunch, the teacher would have a hard time believing that it is safe.

Thanks Katiee, we tried it and like it. And won't be sending it to school for the exact reason you wrote. Thanks for the reply.
Peanut/Nut-free wishes,

Wow, I just bought some today. It's really good. It doesn't taste EXACTLY like PB, but I think I like it better--it's a bit milder than peanut butter. I'm going to let my older, non-PA daughter have it. I'm not going to tell her it's soy--I wonder whether she'll notice the difference. I got the chunky kind. The only bad thing is it's twice the price of peanut butter, so I don't really think it will catch on with non-PA families.

We use this brand too. I buy it by the case at [url="http://www.nutbusters.com"]http://www.nutbusters.com[/url] They have excellent customer service and are very allergy aware. Also, I don't give it to my kids out of the jar-I only use it in recipes.

Just found I.M. Healthy Soy Nut product at my grocery and bought it right up! I was so excited and got it home to have some but got a bit protective as I opened it. I don't think I will give this to my daughter out of the jar because it looks so much like PB. She is only 3 and I don't think she could tell the difference. It is great to have and I look forward to Soy Nut sandwiches as I have missed PB &J.

SaraO, my dd has enjoyed soy butter since she was 2-3 years old. Basically as soon as I found it and realized it was safe. Not trying to talk you into it, but just sharing how we handle having it, in case it is helpful to you. My dd is very picky, eats no meat or cheese so we really need protein sources. She eats this and chicken nuggets for protein(milk and yogurt, too).
However, I only give it to her at home, and occasionally out and about with other folks only if dh and I are with her, and I have one friend who keeps a jar on hand because dd is there alot playing with her sone. I never send it to school or when she goes alone anywhere(which is rare) except this one friend I mention. I explain to dd directly it is alot like PB, and it would be very confusing to others to see her have it. She understands. She is 4 now. It is nice to have it to offer her friends if they are wanting PB at our home and I have them for lunch. I never pretend it is PB, and am very clear to tell them what it is(they usually do not want to try it then, LOL, being 4, and it being a "new" thing).
Just thought I would share how we deal with it. But enjoy! I like it once in awhile. I love a fluffinutter, but the soy butter seems a bit gritty in that for some reason. Still better than nothing for a craving!
BTW, if you have Trader Joe's. they have it too. becca

Thanks Becca, After a few days of thinking it over I have decided to give some SoyNut Butter to my daughter. I guess my quick reaction came as I tasted it for the first time and realizing the similar packaging. I think it will be a great thing to have on hand for snacks and a quick sandwich and I appreciate the advice on when and how you give it to your daughter. I will probably try to follow those same guidelines....not to have it out in public or with others eating PB. THANKS FOR THE ADVICE! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

We've been using SoyNut butter for a couple of years now. Just love the stuff. I wish they'd drop the 'nut' in the name though.
Someone made the mistake of referring to it as "Hannah's special peanutbutter". She set them straight. She said "it is NOT peanut butter. it is made from soybeans and *I* can have it" She's six and just now really grasping that she can't eat everything other people do.

Actually Jennifer, my dd only knows it as *soy butter*! We do not call it soynut butter. Funny, too because I had to twist my tongue around it originally, dropping part of the name, and now, it is so natural for us.
I never tell another child it is PB, as their parents have suggested(to get them to try it when here). I only call it what it is. I might tell them it "tastes like PB, but it isn't and it is safe for dd", but they may try it and see if they like it. That is as far as I go.
Kids can get confused too easily! becca
