WHAT IS MAYVER’S
Mayver’s are an Australian based company that make a range of nut butters and superfood spreads. They believe in using nothing but natural ingredients and the Mayver’s mission is to “make the tastiest, healthiest pure-state peanut butter that your taste buds have ever encountered!” Let’s see how their nut butter range lives up to this!
- Flavours: Smooth, Crunchy, Dark Roasted and Coconut
- Where: Aussie Supermarkets and Amazon worldwide SOON!
- Cost: Around $5.50 for
- Size: 375g jars (recyclable and reusable!)
Taste and Texture: The Mayver’s original Peanut butter has the perfect consistency – not too runny, not to thick, so it’s perfect for spreading and dipping! The original Peanut butter is available in crunchy and smooth – we LOVE the crunchy one – the peanut chunks are just the right size, whilst the rest of the peanut butter is still super creamy and smooth.
Ingredients: Just lightly roasted peanuts and a pinch of sea salt
Perfect if: …you want a PB with the perfect texture!
Taste and Texture: The Mayver’s Dark Roasted Peanut butter is all about the flavour – the full, rich flavour of natural peanuts is achieved through slowly roasting the peanuts before crushing them. Like the original, the dark roasted Peanut Butter is available in crunch and smooth. We love the smooth texture, it goes so well with the intense flavour!
Ingredients: Just roasted peanuts and a pinch of sea salt
Perfect if: …you want an intense nutty flavour!
Taste and Texture: The protein Peanut Butter is super thick, it’s perfect for spreading onto toast or fruit slices, and is great for adding into smoothies for an extra protein hit, with 32% protein per serve – (25% more than Mayver’s original PB). Both the added thickness and the extra protein is gained through the addition of peanut flour.
Ingredients: Roasted peanuts, peanut flour and a pinch of sea salt
Perfect if: …you want to add some protein to your meals or snack
COCONUT AND PEANUT
Taste and Texture: This was probably our least favourite of the range. It has a really subtle coconut flavour and to be honest, we missed the nuttiness from a normal peanut butter. It has a really runny texture (you can see it running off the spoon in the photo!),so it’s great for dipping and adding to sauces, but not so great for spreading – We prefer ours a little thicker!
Best for you if …you want to try something less nutty!
Ingredients: Roasted peanuts, Organic Coconut
Perfect if: …you want something a little different (and less nutty!)
HOW DOES MAYNER’S PEANUT BUTTER COMPARE?
Health: Mayver’s Peanut butter is definitely a healthier choice than many other nut butter brands – it contains only natural ingredients and is free from any preservatives or additives, added oils, unnecessary sugars and hidden salts. In fact, Mayver’s contains half the amount of salt compared to some other peanut butters. It is also ‘pure state’, which means it’s made from wholesome, natural ingredients.
Cost: There is a definite cost difference between any health conscious nut-butters (including Mayver’s) and supermarket own brand peanut butters, but when you look at the ingredients list – it’s worth the extra cost!!
Supermarket Brand: $0.49 per 100g
Mayver’s: 1.47 per 100g
VERDICT : #NAILEDIT OR #FAILED IT?
We LOVE Mayver’s Peanut butters and will 100% be buying the Dark Roasted Smooth Peanut Butter again! (…and maybe the original crunchy one too!!)
