  • Do I need to refrigerate my jar after opening? How long will the product last after opening?

    Nope! We recommend storing our nut butters at room temperature so that it is easier to spread. 
    The optimal shelf life of our nut butters is 1 year from its manufacturing date. From a microbiological or food safety standpoint, our nut butters are safe to consumer past the optimal shelf life, however product quality will decrease the longer it sits past the optimal shelf life. As with any product made without artificial preservatives, we recommend eating our nut butters by the Best By Date (which is printed on the jar).

  • Do your products contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?

    At Justin's, we are committed to sourcing the highest quality ingredients, and we believe that our consumers should be able to make informed choices about the foods they eat. That is why we only source GMO-free ingredients in our products, and why we will have verified our entire product line through the Non-GMO Project by 2019. See the list of our currently verified products here.

     
  • Why does Justin's use palm oil? Is it sustainably sourced?

    The reason that we use palm oil is because it is a non-hydrogenated oil that acts as a stabilizer and reduces oil separation. This means less stirring for you every time you dip into a jar! Adding other liquid oils wouldn't stabilize the nut butters and would increase the oil layer at the top of the jar.

    From the beginning, Justin's has been focused on the responsible sourcing of all our ingredients, including our palm oil, and we are constantly pushing the supply chain for advancements in this area. We are members of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm), which currently represents about 20% of the total palm oil supply. The RSPO encourages sustainable growing practices and human rights initiatives at the farm level, while promoting education about the cultivation and use of certified sustainable palm oil. RSPO is the leading organization to date for sustainably sourced palm oil and Justin's is proud to be among the companies who are actively involved and invested in supporting these initiatives. To learn more about RSPO's certification standards, click here.

    All of our Certified Organic palm oil in our peanut butter cups is sourced from Central and South America and is certified under the IP supply chain model. The palm oil used in our nut butter jars, squeeze packs and snack packs is also certified sustainable under the mass balance supply chain model. In addition to their RSPO membership, all of our palm oil suppliers have built their own independent sustainability policies, and the mass balance suppliers have plans to be fully traceable by 2020.

  • Are your nut butters dairy-free and vegan?

    All of our nut butters are dairy-free. Additionally, most do not contain animal by-products, excluding Honey Almond Butter and Honey Peanut Butter jars, Squeeze Packs and Snack Packs, which all contain honey.
  • Are your products gluten free?

    All of our products, with the exception of our Nut Butter + Pretzel Snack Packs are certified gluten free by the GFCO with the certification stamps clearly displayed on the packaging. Our NEW Peanut Butter + Banana Chip Snack Packs are also certified by the GFCO. However, this item is made on shared equipment with our Nut Butter + Pretzel Snack Packs, which contain wheat-based pretzels . A sanitation process is performed between each production run, however, as a precautionary measure we include “contains trace amounts of what” for allergies and those avoiding gluten.
