Product Description

SunButter is a great tasting alternative to peanut butter made from specially roasted sunflower seeds. All of our products are completely peanut free, tree-nut free, and gluten free. Our sunflower seed spreads are all processed in a peanut & tree-nut free facility. SunButter is packed with nutrition and an excellent healthy alternative to other nut butters. It is nutritionally superior to peanut butter with 1/3 the saturated fat, 27% of your vitamin E in one serving, as well as a much higher iron & fiber content. All of this extra nutrition is derived from the sunflower seeds which are also a great source of protein.

My kids with multiple food allergies (including peanuts) already have enough on their plate without having to explain why they're eating weird looking stuff. So I am thrilled to be able to recommend Sunbutter as a peanut butter substitute. My kids don't have to do without that childhood lunch staple, the peanut-butter sandwich.

Sunbutter doesn't taste like peanut butter; it tastes like sunflower seeds. However, this is not an unpleasant taste, just different. It has the exact same texture and mouth-feel as peanut butter, though, so it can be used as a straight substitute for peanut butter in all kinds of recipes. We've used it as a substitute to make peanut-free peanut sauce, peanut butter cookies, and peanut butter fudge. It functions exactly as peanut butter does, and as long as the sunflower-seed taste goes well in the recipe, it does just fine. I should warn you, though, there are some contexts where the flavor just doesn't work with the recipe. On the other hand you may find that some people will prefer the flavor. Our neighbors don't have a single peanut-allergic kid, but they bought some Sunbutter anyway because their kids had it over at our peanut-free house and loved it.

Sunbutter does have a couple of quirks. First, if you expose it to alkali, it turns green. So if you use it in a recipe that is heavy on the baking soda, you may get an unexpected result. And of course since detergent is alkali, if you leave any on the knife and put it in the dishwasher, that which doesn't wash off will be a harmless but very ugly fecal shade of green. Rinse thoroughly before putting Sunbutter-covered utensils in the dishwasher. Second, it has more of a tendency than peanut butter to separate into oil and solids.

I am an adult who has been allergic to peanuts since childhood. I have never eaten peanut butter, but have always been envious of the idea of peanut butter...a quick, tasty, healthful food that goes with a multitude of other things and is found in recipes everywhere. Unfortunately, since peanuts = death for me, I put it out of my mind. Then one day I found this Sunbutter. Not only is it peanut and tree nut free, it explicitly states on the label that it is manufactured in a facilty that is peanut and nut free. A good thing, because it was with fear and trepidation that I opened and then tasted sunbutter...I mean, it looks and smells just like peanut butter. Obviously, I can't say if it tastes like peanut butter, but I can say that it is DELICIOUS! I have been gleefully eating it on crackers, with apple slices, on sandwiches, and out of the jar straight. It is a major food discovery for me, and I am oh so thankful.

I accidentally purchased this product, thinking it was the Natural SunButter I usually buy in the store. I thought the red cap looked different (the Natural has a yellow cap), but couldn't pinpoint what was different. I quickly realized after reading the ingredients (sugar, mono-diglycerides) and tasting the product (YUCK!) that is was different. It was harder in texture than the Natural SunButter because the mono-diglycerides prevent separation, and the taste was so bland and fake-tasting compared to the Natural SunButter. Don't get confused. Buy the Natural SunButter with the yellow cap. Same company, different (and better) product altogether.

This product tastes great. In fact I think I like it more than I used to like peanut butter. It has a taste which is sweeter than peanut butter and I believe sunflower is better for you anyway. It's definitely made a perfect substitute for something I found out I couldn't have. The price I paid was a lot better than I get locally

I have been eating Sun Butter instead of peanut butter since I first discovered it about 10 years ago. We go through this stuff fast, which is why I'm glad I found this great deal on a 6 pack of jars. I live in the Fargo-Moorhead community where this stuff is made, and it is way cheaper to order from Amazon vs any local store.

Highly recommend for those with peanut allergies, or for those looking for a little variety when it comes to nut butters. YUM!

My son has severe NUT allergies so this was a miracle find for us because he loved PB&J until we found out about the nut allergy with a severe reaction that triggered every nut under the sun, including the Peanuts!! We have used both the 'natural' and the 'creamy' versions. I even made sunbutter cookies (faux peanut butter cookies) with this and they were very good!! The only thing is that I used the 'natural' jar and next time I will use the 'creamy' jar of sunbutter. The natural had a little too much oil and made it hard for cookies to hold together, but the creamy is much thicker so in the future I will use the natural for sandwiches as it is easier to spread, and the creamy for baking. I buy this by the Pack of 6 as sold and go thru it in about 4 months, that's how much my kids love & eat it!! Highly recommend product, especially for those with NUT ALLERGIES, this is a must buy.

I am sadly disappointed with this product. I think I got a bad batch, becaused I have purchased and enjoyed Sun Butter for a number of years. I have tried the Creamy Sun Butter and the the Organic and Natural Sun Butter before and really liked them and far prefer them over Peanut Butter, Almond Butter and all other nut butters. For some reason this batch has almost no flavor at all. In the past I have found Sun Butter to have a subtle sunflower flavor that I have really enjoyed. The texture is very much like peanut butter, of course, but sunflowers are much healthier and better for you than peanuts are. I checked the expiration dates on this batch of six bottles and none are expired, and all are sealed.... so I have no idea at all why they don't taste at all like the Sun Butter I have enjoyed for maybe 5-6 years now. I really can't blame Amazon. They offered them at a good price. These six bottles came packaged from the manufacturer.... so I just don't know what the deal is. I have only opened the first one too.... which means I still have five more to choke down. Disappointed, but not because of the brand necessarily. I think I must have received a bad batch. An UPDATE: I recently purchased a bottle of Sun Butter "Natural" to mix with the Creamy butter style. As the Natural version separates the sunflower butter and oil it tends to be smoother. When mixed 50/50 it made a much better Sun Butter. To anyone looking to buy, I'd recommend the Natural style.
