Soya butter, made (according to pkg label) for peanut allergic (NOT SOYA ALLERGIC) people, is made from roasted soya beans and taste and texture is very similar to peanut butter.

This was a product that a peanut (and dairy and egg) allergic child from our local support group brought with her to a hotel get together. Many of us peanut allergic and not (our families were with us) tried this product and were very happy with it.

For those with siblings/parents etc. who still fancy their peanut butter, this may be a very viable option. Peanut butter is not something that I have in my home, but I will track down a jar of this butter.

This product is from U.S. and is also available in Canada. Distributed by Sweet Mountain Magic the phone number is (703) 478-3049.

Please let me know if you try it and what you think about it.

COCO,
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE SOY BUTTER BUT MY NON ALLERGIC SONS LOVES ALMOND BUTTER. IT ALSO IS SAFE FOR MY ALLERGIC SON BUT HE DOES'T LIKE THE TEXTURE.THE ONLY INGREDIENT IS- ORGANIC ROASTED ALMONDS. I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE TO USE OIL TO ROAST. I'VE ROASTED THEM IN MY BROILER WITH OUT OIL.
IT IS MADE BY MARANATHA NATURAL FOODS, INC.
PO BOX 1046, ASHLAND, OR. 97520
I BEILEVE THEY MAKE LOTS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF NUT BUTTER. I KNOW LOTS OF YOU STAY AWAY FROM LOTS IF NOT ALL NUTS SO THIS MAY NOT BE THE BEST ALTERITIVE. BUT FOR MY FAMILY IT WORKS NICELY.
WE BUY IT FROM MOTHERS MARKET OR TRADER JOES
BUT I KNOW IT CAN BE ORDERED IN BULK FROM MOUNTIAN PEOPLE. GOD BLESS LORI

LSchubert,
Are you sure the almond butter is safe. I was using some for myself last year when I was on the "Zone" diet and I had called the particular company who made it and they also made a "natural" peanut butter. This was not the same brand that you are using.

"Sweet Mountain Magic Roasted Soyabean Butter" comes in a 510g jar.
On the front label there is a picture of a peanut with a circle around it and a line through it. Around this are the words CONTAINS NO PEANUT.
The soyabeans are roasted in soyabean oil and the only other ingredients are corn syrup solids, soya protein isolate, evaporated cane juice, salt, mono and diglycerides.
The back label reads "...with the roasted taste and texture of peanut butter has NO peanuts and is a GREAT CHOICE FOR THOSE ALLERGIC TO THEM"
Company is in Reston, Virginia USA Phone is (703) 478-3049.
I picked this product up at a specialty food shop (Denninger's) in Burlington, Ontario Canada for $5.99 (Canadian dollars)

Coco and all,
I just contacted this company two days ago regarding this product. They are no longer located in Virginia and are in the process of moving their plant to Chicago (you cannot reach them at their Virginia phone number anymore). They are not producing any soya butter at this time and they don't expect it to be on the shelves for a few more months. When I inquired as to the safety of the product, the woman said that she would give my message to the owner who would later call me. I still have not heard from him yet. My specific question will be if they make any other products that contain peanut. Once I get the info, I will post it.

Thanks for the update. My allergic son has had this a couple of times, but is not very fussy on stuff that is processed. (He's more of a fresh fruit and veg./whole grain kind of guy)
His sisters and my husband on the other hand, think that they have died and gone to heaven since none of them has eaten any peanut products in 4 years.
I'll let the local peanut allergic fans know that they should stock up. A fellow peanut allergic Mom introduced many of us to this product at a local conference.

(edited)"Natural Touch Roasted SoyButter". It, also, states that it contains NO peanuts. It has all the same ingredients as the above mentioned brand. Maybe it's from the same company?! It has an address in Ohio, though. It says Worthington Foods, Inc., in Worthington, Ohio.

I went to our local health food store today and found a product called SoyNut butter. It is made by the SoyNut Butter Company out of Barrington, IL. It contains Roasted Organic soybeans, naturally pressed soybean oil, soy concentrate, soy lecithin and salt. It also says Peanut free on the label. I'm going to call their 800 number on Tuesday to make sure it is safe. My daughter (nonallergic who loves peanut butter) gobbled it right up. Finally something easy I can send her for school lunch! I also liked it. It is a bit grittier than peanut butter but otherwise it's pretty good. When I called the 800 number tonight but of course there is noone there on the weekend. But it sounded like you could place an order. Their number is 1-800-288-1012.

Trader Joe's (a US national grocery store) also sells soy butter, both smooth and crunchy. The labels says "contains no PN"
You can call 1-800-shop-tjs to find a store in your town.
