Who doesn’t love peanut butter right? It is one of the most delicious spreads that one can find. However, some people may think it is unhealthy and they want to try out the more “healthier” version of it. The reduced fat peanut butter is actually very bad for your body. While they do remove the fat from the product, this is the monosaturated fat which is actually good for the body. In its place, they insert a lot of corn starch and sugar to maintain the creamy texture of the product. In short, you are taking out the good stuff and replacing it with lots of calories which are simply bad for you.
