I love peanut butter but it doesn't love me. Does anybody have any suggestions for a replacement that tastes the same.

I remeber someone telling me about a new product that is suppose to look,and taste like peanut butter, but it is made out of soy. They found a ad for it in a health food store magazine. Sorry, but that is all I remeber.

Most health stores carry different types of soy butter as an alternative to peanut butter. They don't actually taste like peanut butter but they do look like peanut butter. You have to be careful, however, since some of the brands contain the warning "May contain peanuts." So make sure you check. I have decided not to allow my pa son to have soybutter because it resembles peanut butter and I don't want him to ever confuse the two. He is very young, and I don't want him to think he is eating peanut butter.

Hi Gail; Welcome to the boards. I found this product called Soy Wonder but have not purchased it because my PA daughter is only 3 yrs. old and I don't want to confuse her with a product that is even similar to peanut butter. ut I wrote to the company and they assured me that it is made on an entirely separate line without any peanut products made on it. Here is the link: [url=""][/url]
Here is their letter to me:
Dear Diane -
Thank you for your e-mail regarding our Soy Wonder Product. Rest assured, this product is not produced in the same plant as our Peanut Wonder product. The plant that produces Soy Wonder does not process any other peanut or nut items. Those with allergies to peanuts can enjoy our product Soy Wonder

The question is now, are you allergic to soy? Can you have other nut products, such as cashew? Cashew butter is good, but expensive. Again though, you would have to check the label for the "may contain peanut" label. Me personally, I am allergic to peanuts but not with the severity that my boys are. I can consume products that "may" be contaminated with peanut particle without a problem...but there again it depends on your severity of the allergy. Good luck.

almond butter is delicious! It is great, if you are not allergic to almond, that is! It is creamy and had a roasted flavor to it. I happen to love peanut butter and would eat this as a substitute any time...But It tastes so similar to pb that I won't keep it in my house. Also, I was told by my allergist that where there are any nuts, there are peanuts, so the cross contamination with any of these pb substitutes is an issue.
