Information @ a Glance


  • Peanut butter is a food made of roasted and ground peanuts, usually salted and sweetened. It is commonly sold in grocery stores, but can be made at home. Many styles are available; the most popular are creamy (smooth) and crunchy (with small chunks of peanuts), but honey-roasted, whole-nut varieties, varieties mixed with chocolate, and other variations can also be found.
  • All of the peanuts used for peanut butter are grown in the USA, either in the Southeast (Georgia) or the Southwest (Texas and Oklahoma). The two best-tasting varieties for peanut butter are Spanish and Runners


  • Creamy peanut butter is made by grinding all of the mixture very finely. The crunchier styles are either more coarsely ground or have larger pieces of peanut added back into the mixture after grinding.
  • The peanut butter manufacturers first dry roast the peanuts. Dry roasting is done by either the batch or continuous method. In the batch method, peanuts are roasted in 400-pound lots in a revolving oven heated to about 800 degrees Fahrenheit (426.6 degrees Celsius). The peanuts are heated at 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius) and held at this temperature for 40 to 60 minutes to reach the exact degree of doneness. All the nuts in each batch must be uniformly roasted


  • Peanut butter is frequently used in sandwiches, particularly the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, candy, cookies and pastry.
  • Peanut butter is one of the many products that fall under the bread spreads category. (Other well-known spreads include butter, cheese spreads, jams, jellies and marmalades, sandwich spread, and mayonnaise). Like the other spreads, peanut butter is normally added to ordinary bread to give it a distinct and specific flavor. At times, it is used in baking, and also in cooking to create savory sauces for various vegetable, meat, and pasta dishes


  • The peanut butter industry is an important processed food industry in the U.S. Approximately fifty-three percent of all domestically produced peanuts are used in the production of peanut butter.
  • In the United States and most of the 53 peanut-producing countries in the world, the production and consumption of peanuts, including peanut butter, is increasing.
  • The market for peanut butter has remained relatively steady in the past years. The entry of breakfast substitutes like instant noodles, however, have led companies to be more creative. Players have learned to address consumer demand and preference for more nutritious and healthier foods by fortifying their products with Vitamins A, B1, D3, and E.
