Default Store brand and natural peanut butter

Could someone please explain to me why the nutritional differences are between store brand and natural peanut butter. Is one really better than the other, I guess that's my question.

i asked a nutritionist this one time and they told me, the price is the biggest difference. HAHA, I was like really. Was told that the sugars in namebrands was the biggest diff but there really wasnt enough to justify the extra cost of all natural.

The label and brandname. A natty PB jar's ingredient label should read the same if it's from a store brand, or name brand. If ti says anything other than, Peanuts, it's not natural. Maybe some palm/peanut oil and salt, but that's it.

I prefer to use my $35 blender, a jar of Planters, and make my own. Easy and cheap. Clean-up does suck, but a spray with some hot water and it all washes off. I can also add other flavors if I want, vanilla, cocoa, whatever...

Sugars and oils are the big difference. Look at the labels. I prefer Smuckers Natural, ingredients are peanuts and salt. A true natty will almost always separate, leaving a layer of oil on top. The name brands typically add something to keep the oil from separating.

Coop, look above. Making peanut or almond butter really is as simple as ricka182 said. Drop some in a blender and chop and blend until creamy. It will be loud. Some people add a little honey or butter to help things mix and to affect flavor, but that is not necessary.
