Since 1974, March has honored America’s favorite (not actually a nut) nut: the peanut! Whether roasted, ground, or used as cooking oil, peanuts have become a big part of American cuisine.

Peanuts are actually legumes in the same family as beans and pack a lot of nutrition in one serving. They are a great source of muscle building protein, heart healthy monounsaturated fats, disease fighting vitamin E, and essential B vitamins.

Since 1998, Peanut Butter & Co. has been dedicated to helping the world find delicious new ways to enjoy peanut butter every day! Mighty Nut ® Powdered Peanut Butter keeps the protein and delicious peanut taste while reducing the fat and calories.
