Project 365-097: What’s a Golden Pea?

image

Last week Melissa’s coworker bought a jar of No Nuts Golden Pea Butter for Jacob. She felt bad that our little guy couldn’t have peanuts anymore. So when she say this one the shelf of the supermarket she bought it. First I want to say how thoughtful that was, second I want to know what a golden pea is?

Of course it doesn’t really matter what a Golden Pea is, Jacob loves it. Ever since I first gave it to him he’s wanted it every morning. I never really realised how much he missed peanut butter. Now you might be wondering how it tastes I can say it’s pretty good. It’s got the consistency of peanut butter and most of the taste. It’s probably a little bland, but could probably be traced to the lack of salt. On its own, how Jacob likes it, it’s pretty good. With jam you can’t tell the difference.  It’s good to know that though Violet will never have real peanut butter she will have a opertunity to have a substitute that’s almost as good. We’ll have to make sure that Violet, Jacob and the people around us understand that it’s not Peanut butter. That any Peanut butter could be very bad for little Violet.

  • I'm glad you found a substitute that Jacob likes, hopefully Violet will like it as well. The most important thing is that Violet is safe and you know what to watch out for.One of the things that allergies do is remind us to look at labels. I find it interesting that this product can say "Trans-fat free" when there are 0.2g of trans-fat per serving. Health Canada doesn't have a rule on what you can claim as trans-fat free, but they do allow for a claim of "low-fat": http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/label-etiquet/nutr…..
