You read it right. The folks at PB2 have come up with a powdery substance that can be reconstituted into peanut butter with a few spoonfuls of water. It's called "PB2," and it contains 85% less fat calories than its fully constituted cousin.

Though the powder is a byproduct of the peanut oil extraction and therefore completely natural, we’re having trouble understanding the problem with the original version. Let the astronauts have the powdered form – we’ll stick with freshly ground.

Because you can get it past Security and have your fix in-flight.

I haven't seen it here in Aust, but it would weigh a lot less and that would make it awesome for carrying on multi-day hikes

I use it in my smoothies as well. Nothing wrong with the "real" pb, but it's nice to have an option that is natural but with less fat.

It's been around for a while. We like it in smoothies!
