New in the Market: NuttZo Seven Nut & Seed Butter

blue-jarWe love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think. 

If you love chunky peanut butter, NuttZo is a brand for you. When we first received product samples we thought, what a quirky product, the labels on the jars are upside down. This was intentional. All the ingredients are natural with no emulsifiers to prevent the natural oils from separating during storage. The inverted label is to encourage the grocer to shelve the nut butters on their lids, keeping the oil at the bottom of the jar. When you open the jar you are directed to stir the nut butter to mix in the oil and store it right side up. It never separates again – very clever packaging and marketing.

All three NuttZo Seven Nut and Seed Butters have no additives, preservatives or added sugar. They are USDA-certified organic, vegan, and kosher certified (OU). Because of the high nut and seed content, all NuttZo flavors are rich in health-promoting omega-3 fats

  • Original – peanuts, cashews, almonds, Brazilian nuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, hazelnuts and sea salt has 170 calories in 2 tablespoons and 70 milligrams of sodium.
  • Chocolate – peanuts, dark chocolate chips, cashews, almonds, Brazilian nuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, hazelnuts, and sea salt has 180 calories in 2 tablespoons and 90 milligrams of sodium.
  • Peanut Free– cashews, almonds, Brazilian nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds and sea salt has 180 calories in 2 tablespoons and 130 milligrams of sodium.

Each variety is excellent. They have a rich nutty flavor and a crunchy mouthfeel with a lot of chewing satisfaction. At first we thought the Chocolate flavor was somewhat gimmicky, but we were wrong. It was delicious, not overly sweet, and turned out to be a favorite. This brand is definitely worth a try.

The founder of the company is a mother who adopted two sons. She is committed to helping orphans around the world and 1% of NuttZo gross revenues are donated to Project Left Behind to benefit orphans worldwide.
