  • The answer depends on the brand, your state of health, and whether you are observing any dietary restrictions.

    Most peanut butter is very high in fat content. Most peanut butter does not contain cholesterol or carbohydrates, but some do, especially the reduced fat varieties. If you are following a low carb diet, peanut butter that has no carbs is great, despite the high fat content. If you have diverticular syndrome and have bouts of diverticulitis, some physicians recommend that you avoid eating nuts and seeds, but this recommendation is controversial.

      But peanut butter has more unsaturated fats than saturated. Fat content in this case really doesn't matter.

      I agree, but diverticulitis is really only of concern in elders, not so much during youth.
      I would also recommend anyone to use "natural" peanut butter rather than the norm.

      @Vertical807 "Elders" to you. Mayo Clinic says diverticulitis becomes a concern around age 40. That's young, son! :)
