Organic almond butter has never tasted so delicious. The first in line of our signature Almond Buddahs, made fresh weekly in small batches for our San Diego farmer’s market customers.
Asana Foods’ hand-crafted, artisan Almond Buddah™ is sweetened with coconut palm sugar. If you’re wondering if there’s really a difference between coconut palm sugar and regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup, the answer is a definite, “YES!”
Coconut palm sugar, unlike regular sugar does not contain empty calories; it naturally contains minerals such as potassium, calcium, zinc and iron. The coconut palm sugar that sweetens our gluten-free and organic almond butter also contains antioxidants and healthy natural fatty acids.
The organic almonds in our Almond Buddah contain protein and natural fat, which also further slows the blood-sugar raising effect of the coconut palm sugar. And whether or not you believe it’s important to eat nuts that are organic, we believe that almonds are truly one food you should eat from certified organic sources–see below.**
The gelatinized maca powder provides you with the starch of this Peruvian superfood root, making it highly bio-available and easy to digest. The raw maca powder we get from Fair Trade sources has a natural nutty-butterscotch-y flavor. This superfood may increase longevity and help balance hormones and restore endocrine function.
Roasted organic California Almonds ground into crunchy, sweet, delightful organic roasted almond butter with the added benefits of superfoods and healthier sweeteners!
Suggested Uses: Spread or dip with your favorite fruits and veggies! Or just enjoy the butter straight outta the jar!
**We only use organic almonds. While there are some crops where conventional and organic processes are similar, there is a wide disparity with almonds. Nine pesticides were found by the USDA on conventional almonds, including 3 known neurotoxins and one carcinogen. Conventional almonds may also use propylene oxide (PPO) during pasteurization, which is also a probable carcinogen. Our organic California almonds are grown without pesticides and are steam-pasteurized, which leaves the almonds uncooked, pathogen-free, and chemical-free.
