Vegan-certified variations include creamy and Super Chunk® in regular and natural varieties, as well as squeeze packs and no-sugar-added spreads
Good news for those searching for products that fit with their plant-based diets. Skippy® peanut butter varieties are now certified vegan by the Vegan Awareness Foundation. The brand’s portfolio of vegan-certified products includes both creamy and Super Chunk® peanut butter in regular and natural varieties, as well as squeeze packs and no-sugar-added peanut butter spreads.
“We’re proud to be the only vegan-certified peanut butter that’s as delicious and widely available as Skippy®,” said Sarah Johnson, director of Nut Butters Marketing. “Peanut butter is well regarded as a protein source for vegetarians, and now those adhering to a vegan diet can choose the Skippy® brand too.”
Obtaining vegan certification required a meticulous screening process of Skippy® peanut butter products and the production facilities where they are made. One of the most trusted and best-recognized vegan certifications, the Vegan Action logo indicates the ingredients used to make certified Skippy® products are plant-based and free of products that have been tested on animals. Unlike some peanut kinds of butter that are made in facilities that process animal products and/or contain animal byproducts, Skippy® peanut butter is classified as 100% vegan.
Skippy® peanut butter products are widely available at retailers across the United States. For more information about the Skippy® brand or the vegan certification, visit peanutbutter.com.
