Answers to your questions


How do you make your peanut butter?

Our Whole Earth peanut butter is made very simply – there is very little processing involved. Our high quality peanuts are carefully shelled,
taking care to leave behind the peanut skins which lock in the natural nut goodness. The peanut are then gently roasted and crushed together
to form a paste. We sprinkle a little sea salt and the peanut butter is slowly poured into a glass jar and finally lovingly sealed with a lid.
We use a tamper seal to lock in the delicious taste and ensure that it’s untouched until you get it home! We also add sustainable palm oil
to ensure the product does not become too dry or too oily – perfect!

Where are your peanuts sourced from?

The peanuts in our Whole Earth Peanut Butter are sourced from the Far East and South America.

Are your products free from trans fats / hydrogenated oil?

hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils) in our foods.

Palm Oil

Are your jars recyclable?

Yes our glass jars are 100% recyclable. Our new metal lids will be recyclable in many regions –
please check with your local authority to check whether they are able to recycle steel based metal
lids in your area.

Does any of your packaging contain BPA? (Bisphenol A)

In line with EU legislation the metal lids on our peanut butters, our baked bean cans and
sparkling drinks cans all contain BPA to prevent the erosion of the metal and subsequent contamination of the products.

Does the new tamper seal on the peanut butter affect the shelf life?

The new tamper seal on our lids plays exactly the same role as the previous foil seals on our plastic caps –
it acts as a tamper evident seal. Neither the shelf life nor the freshness of the product will be affected.


Should I keep my peanut butter in the fridge?

Our lovely peanut butter should be stored in a cool dry place, even once opened, but not in the fridge
because it will go hard and make it tricky to spread. It can be used until the best before date on the base of the jar.
