Meridian Foods, the UK’s leading producer of nut butters, has launched two brand new premium peanut butters as it expands its exciting product range.

So what's new?

Meridian’s Rich Roast crunchy and smooth peanut butters are made using only blanched hi-oleic peanuts and will appeal to sophisticated nut butter connoisseurs looking for a more intense taste profile. The peanuts, sourced from Argentina, have been roasted for longer to deliver a richer and more intense flavour than traditional peanut butter.

The new peanut butters will continue to aid a healthy lifestyle as hi-oleic peanuts contain up to 30% more ‘healthy’ fats than Meridian’s standard peanut butters.

Available in 280g jars, Meridian Rich Roast peanut butters will be available to buy at Cardiff Sports Nutrition within the month. The nut butters make a delicious addition when added into smoothies, shakes, cakes & bakes, generously stirred into porridge & ice cream, or just simply spread on toast and crumpets.

Sue McIntosh, Head of Marketing at Meridian Foods commented: “We pride ourselves on continuing to drive innovation when it comes to nut butters, and we believe that this new premium Rich Roast Peanut Butter will appeal to any shopper looking for a more intense flavour.”

“Peanuts already provide a rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals, however by using hi-oleic peanuts we will be increasing the amount of healthy fats available which is something unique to the nut butter category. The new taste will be richer and packed full of more nutty flavour for those with discerning taste buds, and we hope people will be looking forward to trying something new!”
