Nut Butter

So I was looking at some Tahini paste at Whole foods and saw Tahini Nut butter by Once Again Butter Inc. and I also Sesame Tahini by Arrowhead Mils. The Once Again brand was still combined, but the Arrowhead Mills had oil at the top. I was wondering what is the difference between the two, and why oil got seperated on Arrowhead Mills brand?
Ingredient list on Once Again: Dry Roasted, Mechanically Hulled sesame seeds
Arrowhead Mills: Mechanically Hulled Roaseted Sesame seeds.

Seems like the same thing to me.

Thanks
UD

One was made by the prolateriat, the other was made by the bourgeoisie. I will leave you to figure out which is which, comrade.

When you see the title "Nut Butter" in Foo, it's hard to know what to expect. Usually, if it does not separate, you can find the word "hydrogenated" in the ingredients somewhere, and it's supposed to be bad for you. So, go with the one that separates.

The nut butter that has oil on top is un-hydrogenated AND the oil was added after packaging. You will HAVE TO refrigerate this type of nut butter or it will go rancid (unlike "normal" skippy which will keep forever on your kitchen counter without spoiling). Just stir before using to mix the oil into the nut paste. If you run out of oil and the paste gets too stiff, you can add some canola or oilive oil to make it creamy again.

Yep know all about hydrogenated oils. I can't believe people feed skippy to their kids, I wouldn't give it to my pets. After some googling I found my answer. Seems like Once Again brand does add some conola oil so it won't separate. Anyway glad I have discovered the goodness of tahini. It is awesome, goes great with savory oats, or mixed with honey and unsweetened cocoa on some toast.
