Nuttzo Nut Butter Giveaway
When one of my readers (Hey Jen!) emailed me about Nuttzo, I knew I must try it, and company founder, Danielle, was kind enough to send me some samples. After adopting two boys from the Ukraine who were vitamin deficient, Danielle decided to create her own nutrient dense nut butter. Nuttzo contains 7 organic nuts and seeds, providing the body with protein, minerals, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Good job Danielle.
How does it taste you ask?
As soon as my Nuttzo samples arrived, I dolloped a big spoonful on top of a new grain (more about that in a later post). Check out the nutrition info:The taste is not sweet at all which I liked, and it definitely has a strong flax flavor. Nuttzo contains both ground and whole flax seeds. The whole gives it more flavor and fiber, but grinding the flax seeds makes it easier for your body to absorb the omega 3s. According to the company, as long as the shell of the whole is chewed you do get omega 3s from that as well.
I’m guessing Nuttzo is made up mostly of peanuts and flax seeds based on the taste and the amount of ALA Omega-3′s it provides per serving. Let’s just say I haven’t hit any huge almond or Brazil Nut chunks in my jar yet. However, still yummy.
Many thanks to the Nuttzo folks for sending me not one, but two jars so that one lucky reader can try some as well. All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me about your favorite nut. I’ll leave the comments open until tomorrow night at midnight (Tuesday, September 22), and the random winner will be announced on Wednesday.
