Yoga Bar 100% Pure peanut butter is made using just ONE ingredient. Slow-roasted peanuts. It is a known fact that the more roasted the peanuts are, the better-tasting the resultant butter is. The peanuts used are non-GMO.

The USP of Yoga Bar’s peanut butter is that it contains no palm oil, added sugar, or salt. To add to this list, it contains no preservatives. That’s another plus!

That being said, the nutrition label of this peanut butter does contain added flavor that is rosemary extract.
