    Maybe you should try another brand or you haven't mixed the peanut oil inside it right. Seperation is natural, don't forget to stir.

    I leave my natural peanut butter in the fridge because it says to do so on the lid. Why is this though? I leave raw peanuts in the drawer and they seem fine to me.

    I refrigerate mine, too, cause it says so. Non-natural PB doesn't say to refrigerate it... Just figured it was because of all the preservatives and junk in it.

    But I let it set out for 10 minutes or so before I make my sandwich so it warms up and spreads easier.

    When I put my jar back in the fridge I lay it on its side and the contents seem to stay more spreadable that way.

    natural peanut butter should be refridgerated, or it could go rancid.

    when I grab my PB out of the fridge i put in the fork and mix it up until its a little more plyable, then spread.

    Smart balance penut butter is far superior to all other penut betters. It has a great taste, has healthy fats and is easy to spread I prefer to use creamy rather than crunchy.

    yes it is; i have yet to meet a chemist who will eat or drink anything that's been heated in a plastic container in the microwave.
