Our Review Factors
What were we looking for? A creamy peanut butter with a pronounced roasted peanut and dark chocolate flavor. Claims about its protein content were checked as well.
To review the MuscleBlaze High Protein Peanut Butter, we checked for the following –
We checked for two things primarily – the fresh flavor of roasted peanuts and the intense flavor of dark chocolate.
The balance between these two ingredients and sweetness levels were checked as well.
2. Texture (Consistency + Spreadability)
The peanut butter is labeled as creamy. We were looking for a smooth textured PB with impressive scoopability, creamy consistency and easy spreadability.
3. Ingredients + Nutrition Label
MuscleBlaze’s PB claims to be high on protein and that’s what we checked for. Fats and sugar were also put under scrutiny. Ideally a creamy peanut butter provides anywhere between 8 gms of protein. What about this one?
A clean list of ingredients with no preservatives and additives is what we were looking for. What is this PB made of?
4. Other Parameters
Smooth, dark and rich? Is there any oil separation?
Roasted peanuts or dark chocolate – which is the dominant aroma?
What is the shelf life of this peanut butter and how to store it to maintain freshness?
Is this PB priced competitively?
