The Hi Oleic peanuts used in Pic’s Peanut Butter means that there is a higher ratio of mono-unsaturated fats. In fact, the fatty acid profile is similar to that of olive oil. These mono unsaturated fats not only have well established health benefits, particularly for cholesterol metabolism and overall heart health, but also preserve the freshness of the peanut butter, extending shelf life.
