Does Peanut Butter contain palm oil?

Suma peanut butter

Suma peanut butter is palm oil free

Suma Peanut Butter contains nothing but peanuts. We used to jar it ourselves by hand in the good old days – that was a sticky and time-consuming job! Nowadays you
could say that production is a little bit slicker.

We’re really proud to say that our Organic Peanut Butters contain nothing but peanuts. Nothing added, no sugar, no hydrogenated fats, and no palm oil.
Why? Because we never thought it was necessary! You may find that some oil might separate a little to the top of the jar, but it easily mixes back in with a quick stir. Suma Peanut Butter is available in small and large jars, crunchy and smooth, with sea salt or without. We also have a Fairtrade Peanut Butter.

    I congratulate on your Efforts as I did NOT think it NECESSARY to put any OIL Peanut butter BECAUSE peanuts CONTAIN OIL!!!!but discovered today that it does when it is Tescos OWN brand. I shall be examining the others.
    Having researched the terrible destruction of the world’s tropical forests by Agribusinesses planting and buying up vast acres of these forests ALL over the world , I am truly shocked and amazed.
    So I thank you for realising this and producing something I can consume with a clean conscience.But, how can I put this on FACEBOOK?
    Kind regards
