To Make the Best Nut Butters on the Market, We Tapped Health Expert Thomas DeLauer 

Last Update: September 1, 2023

What makes a deliciously creamy, slightly sweet, supremely spreadable nut butter? In many cases, nothing good — think processed oils, high doses of sugar, and artificial flavors — but not here at Thrive Market.

When we set out to make our own line of healthier, low-sugar nut butters that the whole family would love, we tapped renowned health expert and longtime friend of Thrive Market Thomas DeLauer to lend his nutrition expertise. The result is a line of better-for-you macadamia, brazil, and hazelnut butters made with the very best ingredients (and as always, at the very best, member-exclusive low prices).

Meet Thomas DeLauer, Health Expert and YouTuber Extraordinaire  

Thomas DeLauer wasn’t always a fitness pro with a following of nearly 3.5 million people. Not so long ago, he was overweight and struggling with his health in the same ways that many people are: feeling lethargic, distracted by his busy life, and faced with an increasing number of health issues in his family. 

He knew it was time for a change. DeLauer set out to totally overhaul his lifestyle, focusing on eating primarily a keto diet, setting the bar high with challenging fitness goals, and researching all he could to learn more about health and nutrition. DeLauer lost nearly 100 pounds and set into motion a completely new life trajectory as a health coach and fitness expert. He landed magazine covers, amassed a massive online following, and, lucky for us, partnered with like-minded brands like Thrive Market. 

Made in collaboration with DeLauer, our new nut butters lean into everything he has learned about nutrition over the years, from his beginnings adhering to a strict keto diet to his current routine prioritizing whole foods and a Mediterranean diet. They’re a healthy indulgence, and one that you can feel good about feeding to yourself and your children alike. 

“I wanted to create nut butters that satisfied some of the gaps I see in terms of micronutrients and minerals… but in a way that was focused more on fun flavors for the whole family to lower their sugar intake,” DeLauer says. 

What makes a healthier nut butter? 

With this in mind, we made our nut butters with MCT oil and sweetened them with allulose and monk fruit, which are natural cane sugar swaps that won’t spike glucose levels, but still have a craveable sweet taste. They’re also made without gluten and grains, which means they’re free of common allergens and able to fit into many diets and lifestyles. Yet another plus? These low-sugar treats are keto-friendly, plant-based, and naturally creamy — no vegetable or seed oils required. 

So, how does Thomas DeLauer himself like to enjoy his namesake nut butters? “I put them on toast for the kids, in smoothies, but most of all, I just scoop them right out of the jar!” DeLauer says.
