For health conscious consumers who simply can't give up the taste of peanut butter, Jif Peanut Powder is a great alternative option. While there's little that's as good as a creamy dollop of peanut butter, there's no denying that the spread is high in fat and calories. Jif Peanut Powder offers a way to reduce those negative nutrition aspects without sacrificing flavor.

Peanut powder is made by pressing peanuts to remove the oil, then grinding them into a fine powder. This process removes 85 percent of the fat while retaining the protein and fiber -- not to mention the flavor. Comparatively speaking, a tablespoon of Jif Peanut Powder has less than 25 calories and 2 grams of fat, while a tablespoon of normal peanut butter has nearly 100 calories and 8 grams of fat.

Jif Peanut Powder is great for mixing into smoothies, dips, or baking recipes to add peanut flavor.
