Do we really need powdered peanut butter

Recently at a fitness expo in Melbourne, a beautiful but unfortunate young girl tried to sell my partner powdered peanut butter. Boy was she in for a treat!

“Where is the fat?” he asked, confused. “We take the fat out so it’s 85% less fat calories” she replied enthusiastically despite his look of horror.

She then described how amazing the powder is in smoothies and balls and that you can enjoy a (very highly-priced!) peanut butter without all the fat. “Then what’s the point?” he asked slightly annoyed by now. Dumbfounded she replied “peanut butter flavour, without the fat”. “And why is there added salt and sugar?” he asked. In response, she continued on about how good it tasted.
