    Yes
    I eat generally only "organic" peanut butter, but will say on occasion eat the fresh gound peanut butter at Whole Foods. Think this is okay or need "organic"?

    On jelly side, I very seldom eat jelly, but when I do it's not "organic" but NO SUGAR (not artificially sweetened either).

    Great topic as never really thought about should I purchase "organic" peanut butter too. Like to see what others post.

    Thanks,

    You can also purchase regular peanut butter that's NOT organic with NO SUGAR!! That's what I purchase when can't get organic at a particular store.

    Think organic in these products is worth it? Curious...

    No peanuts or peanut butter for me!
    for what it's worth.....

    I'm following diet recommended by a homeopathic doc who said no peanuts. Don't really know why. I am also on NO SUGAR or additives or processed food. I would eat fresh strawberries and almonds or walnuts.

    Best wishes. Mary Ann

    Peanuts = beans
    and are source of carcinogenic called aflatoxin. (The China study, but we learned about that at school these 30 or so years ago)
