How to Care for Your NuttZo 7 Nut & Seed Butter

About NuttZo

From Danielle, Owner and Founder of NuttZo:

“Fitness and nutrition have always been an integral part of my life. After adopting two boys from Ukraine who were nutrient-deficient, I became even more focused on preparing creative, flavorful, super-nutritious foods. NuttZo is a powerhouse of nutrition blended into a delectable butter. I’m honored to share it with you and your family.

Adoption was a life changing event for my husband and me. After meeting so many of the beautiful orphaned children while adopting our two sons, we founded Project Left Behind, a 501c3 non-profit organization focused on providing education and living essential to orphans. I am so pleased to announce that NuttZo is a proud supporter of Project Left Behind.”

Product Specific Questions

Well it’s kind of up to you!  We recommend first stirring your nut butter really well with a butter knife and then feel free to store your jar at room temperature so that it is easier to spread or put it in the refrigerator if you think it will take you more than a couple of weeks to consume; this will keep your nut butter tasting fresh, longer.  (hint.. Our Chocolate NuttZo has the consistency and taste of fudge when you chill it!) Here is also a great article on storing your nut butter.

We loved the glass jars too!! Unfortunately, our co-packer that packed our product in glass for more than eight years went out of business forcing us to find another co-packer. After much diligent searching, the only co-packers we have found that meet our standards are ‘glass-free’ facilities and will ONLY produce our product in BPA-free, PET plastic. It has been a challenging transition for us and we are so grateful to our loyal fans for sticking by our side as we navigate these manufacturing challenges.

NuttZo prides itself on finding the best quality products we can find and that includes the factories we produce in, to the packaging it’s put in. The substances used to manufacture our jars are free from the chemicals Bisphenol A (BPA), Bisphenol S (BPS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and ortho-phthalate plasticizers (commonly known as phthalates). Because of this they are considered BPA-free, BPS-free, PVC-free and ortho-phthalate-free. Based on our current knowledge of the raw materials and processes used in the manufacture of our jars, we have no reason to expect these substances to be present in this product.

Are you seeing white in your NuttZo? In the Direct Trade Certified Taza 65% dark Paleo chocolate there is cocoa butter. In the colder months when the natural oils start to separate, you may notice the cocoa butter solidify and turn white. This is naturally occurring and your NuttZo is still perfectly good. With a little friction it will melt right back into the butter!  Enjoy!

Remember NuttZo is natural so the oils do separate. Therefore, when you first open NuttZo, all the oils will be at the bottom of the jar. Just like with all natural nut butters, after the oils separate the nut butter can be quite hard at the top. Keep pushing a butter knife down through the nut butter paste into the oils. The nut butter paste will start to combine back into the oils. Once you’ve knocked all the paste into the oils stir into a creamy butter. You must stir the oils before you refrigerate. Refrigerate lid side up once it’s opened. No need to stir again.

Tip: make holes in the nut butter paste with a butter knife before you start stirring and this will make it easier. Once you’ve stirred it completely then refrigerate and you will not have to stir again.

NuttZo’s label is on upside down not just because we think its eye-catching but also because we want it stored on its lid while sitting on the store shelves waiting for you to purchase it. The natural oils then separate to the bottom of the jar which is really the top and this makes for NO mess when you finally open it at home and stir in all that nutty goodness.

Because a lot of our steps to making your yummy NuttZo is by hand, it creates an inconsistency in the chopping and grinding of NuttZo. Each jar has the same amount of the seven nuts and seeds but it may vary on chunkiness and thickness from jar to jar. Remember, it’s a jar made with love every time.

Bold BiteZ need to be refrigerated because we don’t add any emulsifiers and the oils would start separating at room temperature. Also there are no preservatives in our bars so the bars could start to taste rancid after two weeks.

Ingredients, Allergens & Certifications

All peanuts, nuts, and seeds, are roasted into our delectable blend to create NuttZo. One of the reasons we roast our nuts and seeds is to keep them free from pathogens. The dry roaster is what we use for nut butters. We roast at 309 F for 9 to 12 minutes depending on the nut and moisture. Every batch of NuttZo is tested in a private lab. We are committed to safety and giving you the highest quality ingredients.

All of our nuts and seeds are Non-GMO, unpasteurized and roasted.  We source our nuts and seeds from various farmers around the world in order to maintain our high standard of quality.

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state’s drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

  • All of NuttZo production has been tested for a list of possible chemicals that could be found in our products.
  • Each chemical has its own limit that if it test over that limit a warning must be listed.
  • If there are multiple chemicals found the warning must only list 1 chemical that covers all possible issues. In NuttZo’s case that is acrylamide which is known to cause cancer, birth defects and reproductive harm. Acrylamide is naturally formed when food is roasted.

Consumers with peanut allergies should be directed only to our 12 oz. or 26 oz. Power Fuel products. Our Power Fuel is made in a production facility without peanuts, but the facility that packages our 2Go Power Fuel also packages peanut products.

Yes! But here is some important information you might want to know:

NuttZo Power Fuel flavors are made in a facility that also processes other tree nuts.
NuttZo Peanut Pro flavors are made in a facility that also processes peanuts and tree nuts.
NuttZo Power Fuel Allergens: Tree nuts, (cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, and hazelnuts) and seeds (chia, pumpkin, and flax seeds).
NuttZo Power Fuel Chocolate Allergens: Tree nuts (cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, and hazelnuts) and seeds (chia, pumpkin, and flax seeds).
NuttZo Peanut Pro Allergens: PEANUTS, tree nuts (cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, and hazelnuts) and seeds (sunflower and flax seeds).

Nope. Never. We don’t believe in it. The original source of ‘natural flavors’ must be plant or animal material. However, natural flavors are typically highly processed and may contain many chemical additives. In fact, natural flavors usually aren’t much different than artificial flavors in terms of chemical composition and health effects. From a health and safety standpoint, we think the best best is to avoid foods with natural or artificial flavors by choosing fresh, whole foods whenever possible – like NuttZo!
