What are Nut Butters?

Nut butters have been around for quite some time, and they are the perfect go-to ingredient for various dishes. Nut butter is a byproduct of nuts – a paste you get after crushing nuts. All types of nuts can become nut butter - the result is almost similar - a coarsy and/or smooth, spreadable paste with an oily texture and a nutty flavor. No other ingredient is added unless it is made to be a flavor butter. They all have a rich taste and a creamy texture which makes them perfect for use in dips, baked goods, and even smoothies. A versatile nut ingredient, nut butters are often found in multiple applications across the food and beverage industry.
