Dr Zak's peanut butter

Functional food brand Dr Zak’s has added a range of peanut butters to its protein-enhanced portfolio. 

Available online from health food stores, the five-strong range comprises Fresh Raspberry, Salted Caramel, White Chocolate & Coconut, Apple & Cinnamon and Cherry Bakewell flavours (rsp: £6.99/450g). Each 100g portion contains 36g protein - compared with 25g in a typical peanut butter - and is made with partially hydrolysed whey protein isolate to make it ‘easier and faster’ for the body to absorb, said the supplier. 

The range, which targets the fitness and wellbeing markets, is free from palm oil and artificial sweeteners and is approved by the Vegetarian Society. It joins the brand’s existing protein-enhanced bread, pasta, coconut oil and liquid egg white products.
