Almond Butter brands

Recommended Posts

I know almond butter is allowed, but I am wondering about a specific brand. Justin's classic almond butter I bought it then a friend I am doing it with said it might not be approved it might have added sugar. Can someone help I don't want to eat something not approved! I am working hard at this whole eat clean thing! (:

We are hesitant to recommend specific brands, as ingredients change and can vary by region. Look at the ingredient list to check whether all ingredients are compliant. If you still have a question, post the ingredient list here.

Whoops, I see you edited your post to add the nutritional info and ingredients.

The ingredients list is what to look at for Whole30 compliance.

I'm confused by 'other ingredients' - is there another ingredient list on the label?

The 2g of sugar could just be naturally occurring. I have almond butter, the Whole Foods store brand, that only has "almonds" as the ingredient and it has 2g of sugar listed in the nutrition data.

Ok thanks! EVEN though it still has 2g of sugar in the nutrition label? I mean I think it is natural sugar but I am no expert lol

 

What shortystylee said.

 

Again, the ingredients list rules for Whole30.
