Unblanched almonds are dry roasted and milled smooth to create this smooth almond butter. Oil separation occurs naturally. To prevent, stir and refrigerate or freeze. This is a gluten free product. No hydrogenated oil, preservatives, or sugar is added. Occasionally, because of the natural manufacturing process and the lack of artificial ingredients, the nut butter may separate from the oil. To restore, simply stir the contents together with a metal utensil. Heating the jar slightly may help the stirring process.
