I’m glad I make my own almond butter.
I like to read intersting food facts. This one I came upon today, surprised me. According to a Huffington Post article, Peanut Butter contains insect fragments? Really?
The article references FDA.
|PEANUT BUTTER||Insect filth
|Average of 30 or more insect fragments per 100 grams|
|Average of 1 or more rodent hairs per 100 grams|
|Gritty taste and water insoluble inorganic residue is more than 25 mg per 100 grams|
DEFECT SOURCE: Insect fragments – preharvest and/or post harvest and/or processing insect infestation, Rodent hair – post harvest and/or processing contamination with animal hair or excreta, Grit – harvest contamination
I doubt it.
