Powdered peanut butter available from Bell Plantation called PB2.

http://www.bellplantation.com/

It is an ultrafine powder made by roasting and pressing peanuts, which removes much of the fat.

If anyone has tried this or plans to please post how it tastes, etc. I was wondering if anyone made this product and am excited about saving a couple of pounds from my packs weight.
Thanks. Mark

Well, but isn't it exactly fat we need on long trips?

I beleive Wild has taste tested this product....I know she had experienmented with powdered sour cream and found it lacking, I can't recall what she said about PB....contact her here:
http://www.outdooradventurecanada.com/forum/default.asp
yes the funny looking link works

Very interesting question Lester......ask Laurie tonight at the food seminar what the trade off would be. You would have to source the fat elsewhere in your diet.
she is going to cover nutrtion needs in a caloric burn environement
PB has 12% of your RDA of fat.....1.5 grams of saturated.
I wonder if it is worth removing the saturated part by taking powdered and replacing it with a better profile like olive... or a neutral taste with higher omegas like Safflour?

anyone have the powdered prodcut on hand and could send me the nutrient profile?
Thanks.....the processing might be removing nutrient as well or nenaturing protein....... the meat is in the details

Powdered Peanut Butter ( Walton Feed Mills)

You will not like it as a reconstituted spread . Better to use it for baking purposes. i.e. peanut butter cookies.

Powdered Sour Cream is best for cooking purposes, such as adding it to a dish such as Stroganoff, or one another pasta sauce....
I don't think you would want to reconstitute it for consumption by itself.

When I saw this product I was thinking more in the lines of Thai noodles dishes and increasing the protein content in other dishes.

Yes, there are not very many fatty foods with low water content suitable for long storage. Peanut butter and other nuts are one of them. Cheese isn't too bad--but more water and shorter shelf life. Canned meats are another possibility. Pure oil is another possibility--but hard to make palatable.
This isn't really dehydrated--peanut butter is already pretty much free of water and carbs. It is defatted--leaving pure protein--good supplemental animal feed, but not so good for people--especially people on a high calorie diet--who probably get enough protein from their grain products--plus a few fatty nuts or animal products.
