A-Z of foods: P is for peanut butter

If you think peanut butter is high in fat, you'd be right. But the good news is that this is the healthier type of fat - unsaturated fat. Peanut butter gives you plant protein as well as nutrients such as phosphorus, potassium, zinc, folate, and vitamin E. What's more, there's no butter in peanut butter!
