Does my peanut butter or almond butter need to be refrigerated?

Our products are best stored in a cool, dry, place and there is a recommended "best by" date placed on the bottom of each jar. If you're hoping they have less separation everytime you open it, you may store them in the fridge, but it is not necessary if you don't mind giving them a stir or if you eat them fast enough 😂

Why is there oil on top when I open up a jar of peanut or almond butter?

We do not use emulsifiers, hydrogenated oils or preservatives ( the stuff that keeps the oils from separating from the nut after it's ground). Because Americano nut butters are all-natural, the oils naturally rise, so be sure to give it a good stir for ultimate tastiness! We recommend using a fork to stir and if you're hoping for more you can pour the whole jar into another bowl and stir. 

Are the peanut and almond butters gluten free? 

Though we are not certified gluten-free, we do not add any gluten ingredients into our nut butters. We list all of our ingredients in the description of the product, you can check those out here. We know how important that is to people especially with allergies! 

Is peanut butter keto?

KETO friends rejoice! With 3g net carbs and ZERO added sugar you can still enjoy our peanut butter.⁠

FUN FACT: The typical serving of peanut butter has 6g net carbs. Ours has 3g net carbs.

Are Americano nut butters smooth or crunchy?

Our peanut butters have a smooth consistency! The chunkiest option that we offer is our almond butters since almonds have a little less naturally occurring oil they tend to be the chunkier grind! You can check out all of our flavors here

Can dogs have peanut butter?

Yes! Our peanut butter is an energy boost for your pooches! 🐾⁠

It is with pride that we say yes because of our no added sugars or preservatives. PB is safe for furry friends so long as it is xylitol free and fed in moderation. 

Make sure to check labels because some peanut butter brands may be disguised as safe but include Xylitol, a sugar-replacement sweetener. An ingredient which is also present in chocolates. This is poisonous for our canine besties!⁠

I saw that you're based out of Arizona, where can I find your PB locally?

You may find Americano Foods products with the "local" tab in the nut butter section of all Arizona Sprouts (they carry our peanut butters, but not the almond (yet!)).  You can also find us in Arizona Fry's and Aj's Fine Food locations!
