My favorite was the Almond Butter with Chia, Hemp Seed and Goji. This uber-nutritious source of complete protein, heart-healthy fats, and wide-ranging micronutrients made for a delicious afternoon snack. I topped my brown rice cakes with the butter and felt re-energized for the afternoon.
So how does this compare to regular almond butter?

Which one would you rather eat? I’ll stick with Yumbutter. I do not want added sugar or hydrogenated oils in my food thank you very much.
Refrigeration is not necessary. Yumbutter will last for several months without refrigeration. Do store it out of direct sunlight and in a cool place, if possible. That said, refrigeration will help Yumbutter keep even longer. It will also keep some of the natural oils from rising to the top. Many of the potions remain creamy even while refrigerated. Experiment and see what works for you. I keep mine in my desk drawer at work.
