THE CASE FOR NUT BUTTERS!
THE CASE FOR NUT BUTTERS!
We all love our butter, don’t we? As young Indians growing up, our mothers have fed us enough butter on parathas, dosas, toasts, etc. that our love for butter is akin to our love for food. We cannot keep up with the heavy dose of dairy butter as we grow up and one of the greatest superfood innovations has been are the nut butters, made from pasting nuts and extracting it’s healthy fats to make some sinfully tasty yet healthy alternatives to butter.
Initially, people only knew about the classic peanut butter but over time, the nut butters have become more and more familiar to them. Nut butter is a dense paste made by crushing nuts and extracting its healthy fats . The nuts used in nut butter may be raw or roasted. The end product using roasted nuts is richer, more intense in flavour, while raw nuts result in a milder flavour. When the nuts are very finely ground, the result is sometimes as creamy as butter, in contrast with a chunky one, in which chunks of whole nuts are allowed to remain intact to get that bite.
While most nut butters have plenty of nutrients, they can also be calorific and contain high amounts of sugar, which is why it is better to have measured amounts in order to integrate them into a healthy diet.
Consumers are now more aware that not all fats are bad and that they should be eating them as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle which these nut butters provide. It helps in regulating your energy, mood, and even your weight. Gone are the days of the low-fat diet, instead the focus is now on low-sugar (which natural nut butters are). Nut butters have now become more widely available in a whole range of different flavours to offer. Such is the versatility of understated nuts like almonds, cashew, macadamia, hazelnuts, walnuts etc.
