Myth: Reduced-Fat Peanut Butter Is Healthier

Truth: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not necessarily a better choice over the regular kind. In fact, more sugar and sodium are often added to make up for the lower fat content. “Beware and read the fine print as many brands contain trans fatty acids or partially hydrogenated oils -- those pesky bad-for-you oils -- to enhance each jar's shelf life as well as the flavor of the lower-fat version,” says Retelny. Instead, she says pure, unadulterated ground peanuts are your best bet.
