Best Nut/Sunflower replacement available
Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2014
After my youngest daughter was diagnosed with a severe peanut (tree nut) allergy we began the hunt for something to replace my eldest daughter's favorite sandwich. We went originally with sunflower seed butter, which was by far my favorite due to the fact that I love sunflower seeds.
However, after a few months of usage my daughter began to exhibit mild allergic reactions to the sunflower seed butters (even though they were manufactured on equipment that does not manufacture peanuts). We also tried hemp butters but my daughters did not like the flavor. So we moved on to soy butter.
The Wowbutter started originally because of it's availability in our local grocery store, but was cemented as a house favorite soon there after. One of my daughters has a huge sweet tooth, but she will not allow us to destroy her favorite sandwich, bread and Wowbutter, nothing more, nothing less.
The flavor is more akin to roasted soy beans than peanut butter which is reassuring for my daughter, due to being able to definitively know that it is not peanut butter.
This product came w/out any excessive oils sitting on top, there was no need to mix the soy butter, just scoop and spread. The size is great for a family that eats soy butter sandwiches and/or "soy jam sams" at least twice a week, but in most cases more often. We used to go through about 10 (plus or minus 1) jars each semester, so this size is a lot more economical and has yet to spoil or encompass any quality degradation at all.
Update - still using this as our only nut butter substitute. It bakes well (read wow butter blossoms (sb cookie with a kiss on top) - which actually taste better than pb blossoms). It keeps well. It's better tasting than all other soy butter products we've tried. And overall the taste is great.
