Peanut butter tends to be a universal crowd pleaser. After all, it pairs well with both sweet and savory recipes. Jelly would be lost without it, and sometimes there’s nothing better than simply enjoying it by the spoonful all on its own. But peanut butter isn’t exactly a low-cal, low-fat snack—that is unless it’s Bell Plantation PB2. For over a decade, Bell Plantation has been revolutionizing the way we think about this beloved nut butter by offering a lower calorie, lower fat powdered version that’s free of unwanted chemicals and preservatives. Thanks to Bell Plantation, peanut butter is no longer off the menu just because you’re watching your waistline.
The History of Bell Plantation
As one of the original manufacturers of powdered peanut butter, Bell Plantation got its start in 1991 by J.C. and Jo Bell. The brand was initially conceived as an agricultural research company but began developing consumer-friendly products to improve the profitability for family farmers. In an effort to make use of a significant peanut surplus, the brand’s star product PB2 was born in 2007.
Bell Plantation Company Mission
Bell Plantation was launched with a mission to help its consumers to find balance in everyday life and feel confident in their choices. The brand continues to work with a family of farmers to craft pure, wholesome products that will help others to live better and healthier lives. The brand takes its time to ensure that every product in its line is both healthy and delicious at the same time.
Benefits of Bell Plantation
If you’re a peanut butter fan then you probably already know that nut butters are a terrific source of plant-based protein. However, that doesn’t make peanut butter without flaws (like a high calorie and fat content). Bell Plantation’s PB2 takes a cleaner, chemical-free approach to peanut butter by offering all the creamy goodness you love about the classic spread without preservatives, artificial sweeteners, oil, or high fat. The result is a naturally produced peanut butter that just needs a bit of water to be just as rich and flavorful as its predecessor. Bell Plantations products are enjoyed by dieters, plant-based eaters, and parents who are looking for a healthier alternative to the other spreads on the market.
