Peanut allergies affect around 400,000 UK adults and one in fifty children, and can be deadly. Even being around someone who is eating peanuts can trigger an allergic reaction. This has meant peanut butter has been off the menu for many families and in some schools. That is until now. Wowbutter is a 100% peanut free spread, which is providing a great tasting alternative which is completely free of the allergens gluten, dairy, egg and nuts.
Available in creamy and crunchy varieties, Wowbutter is made from non-GM soya beans and is a source of protein and Omega 3 and is suitable for vegans.
Ian and Freddy are big peanut butter sandwich fans. Freddy calls them 'daddy sandwiches' and will always happily tuck into one for his lunch. So I decided to test out the quality and taste of Wowbutter on them, without telling them that it wasn't made from actual peanuts!
They both enjoyed their sandwiches and when I asked Ian what he thought of the new 'peanut' butter he said it was the most peanutty tasting peanut butter he had ever had. He assumed it was a really high quality brand with extra peanuts in it. He was shocked when I told him that it was 100% peanut free! He loves the stuff!
Under the label is a sheet of stickers which can be stuck on school lunchboxes to show that your sandwiches are 100% peanut free in case of any issues with children with allergies, letting the school know that your sarnies are safe!
The Wowbutter can be used as a tasty spread in sandwiches or on toast, or can be used to make a satay sauce or in baking.
It's won Gold in the Quality Food and Drink Awards 2013.
Available in Holland and Barrett, Whole Foods and Booths for £4.99 for a 500g jar.
