Is oily peanut butter healthy?
I recently bought two products of peanut butter and I wanted to try because I was curious of the local peanut butter in my country.
I tried two brands of chunky peanut butter.
1. Royal Brand
Ingredients mentioned: peanut, sugar, salt
I was surprised by the amount of oil in the peanut butter because oil isn’t mentioned on the label. However, the taste of this peanut butter is delicious as the taste of the peanut is perfect.

2. Morin Brand
Ingredients mentioned: roasted peanuts, sugar, vegetable oil, hydrogenated vegetable fat, salt
This product is less oily, but it’s still quite creamy.
I can’t really taste the peanut and I think that this product put more sugar and salt in it.

I also want to compare these two products to JIF
3. JIF extra crunchy peanut butter
Ingredients mentioned: made from roasted peanuts and sugar, containts 2% or less of: molasses, fully hydrogenated vegetable oils (rapeseed and soybean), mono and diglycerides, salt
JIF is one of the most well known peanut butter, and the texture is drier that the two products above.
From the taste, royal brand and JIF is the best
From the price, JIF is definitely the most expensive.
Royal brand is the oiliest and JIF is the driest.
I’m really curious about the Royal Brand, is the oil in peanut butter healthy? and is normal for peanut butter to be that oily?
If you were to buy, which would you prefer and why? maybe based on nutrition and health factors? thanks :)
