Barney Butter is all set to launch in India by Oswal Organics!

Barney Butter, a leading California based almond butter brand all set to get launched in India by Oswal Organics.
Founded in 2008 in Fresno, California, Barney Butter is one of America’s leading producers of almond butter, and one of the few specialty nut butter brands devoted exclusively to almond products. Barney’s obsessive focus on the quality of its all-natural almond butters has inspired a three-year growth rate of 553%, earning the company a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in the U.S. Barney crafts its small batch, artisanal almond-butter with organic, fair-trade, non-GMO ingredients whenever possible to create the taste and promote the values rooted in its California home.

Company President & CEO Dawn Kelley states “We’ve always seen Barney Butter as the kind of dietary staple that deserves to be as good to your body as it is to your taste buds,” says Kelley. “That was the thinking that inspired us to develop an all-natural product in the first place. It also drove us to become one of the first specialty nut butters to earn the non-GMO Project Verified Seal, almost five years ago.”
 
They’re creamy and smooth, and they don’t need to be stirred or refrigerated. Why choose almond butter? Almond butter has less saturated fat/ more calcium, iron, vitamin E, fiber and magnesium than peanut butter. Launching in India with a bang of 8 variants Smooth, Crunchy, Raw & Chia, Honey & Flaxseed, Vanilla & Espresso, Cocoa & Coconut.

Natural nut butters in general are VERY good for you.  That’s because they contain a lot of healthy, unsaturated fats that help to maintain good cholesterol levels, slow digestion, and can actually be used as a good fuel source by your body on ketogenic diets.  Almonds themselves contain a lot of Omega-6 fatty acids, which when balanced properly with Omega-3 fatty acids, can ensure your body stays in top form and is resistant to excessive inflammation.

Finally, almonds may actually help you to lose weight, despite being a high calorie, high fat food.  There have been all sorts of studies done on the consumption of raw nuts, including many tests on human subjects regarding diet and weight gain.  People who eat nuts at least twice a week were drastically less likely to gain unwanted fat when keeping their diet in check.  So what are you waiting for?  Have some almond butter, and don’t you dare feel guilty. 

Currently available on Amazon India and all the leading stores at 999 MRP for 284 grams.
