I have mild psoriasis and have always steered clear of peanut butter because it's on the DO NOT EAT list. Is it the fat content that causes these adverse reactions on the skin? I've been afraid to try any nut butter for this reason. Are all nut butters the same in terms of nutritional benefits?

I always thought psoriasis was caused from a deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

Could be. But nut butters are higher in Omega-6.

I don't think it's the fat content; I would think it would more likely be the fact that peanuts are a common allergen and that peanuts are infected with a carcinogenic mold called aflatoxin. Actually, other nut butters are healthier than peanut butter. Try out almond butter, pumpkin seed butter, soy nut butter, and my favorite, sunflower seed butter. They are delicious and I don't think you would have a problem with them.

I am a big fan of pumpkin seed butter - tons of iron. Lots of these can be alot more costly than peanut butter, but definitely worth it as far as nutritional value is concerned.

If peanut butter is on your do not eat list, and you don't exactly know why, ask your doctor before eating any nut butter. Better to be safe then sorry!

Grind nuts (generally roasted, but I think raw works as well) into a paste. You can add a bit of oil to some nuts to make it a bit easier to do so.
