How we test peanut butter


We tested peanut butters that are available nationally in major supermarket chains, looking at crunchy, smooth, no added sugar/salt and light varieties. A total of 47 supermarket peanut butter products were tested.


Our experts tasted the peanut butter samples blind (without knowing the brands) in a randomised order, which was different for each expert. 


Experts independently judged all peanut butters, scoring each sample for flavour followed by texture, aroma and appearance. The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of 80% taste and 20% nutrition (we calculated a Health Star Rating from the details in the nutrition information panel and converted it to a percentage). We recommend peanut butter products with an overall score of 80% or more.
