Dieters and athletes love the taste; parents love that it is made in a peanut free facility
FRESNO, Calif., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to viral marketing, growing demand and increasing sales, Barney Butter Almond Butter www.barneybutter.com has expanded its distribution, including 128 locations of Raley's Family of Fine Stores. Barney Butter is an all natural, no-stir, no-refrigeration almond butter. Demand prompted a move to a much larger facility that is peanut free (almond only). "We had repeated customer requests for almond butter made in a peanut-free facility. We now are the only almond butter manufactured in a peanut-free facility," states founder and partner Jennifer Barney.
"It's fun to check my Google alerts and read all the blogs where people talk about how they love it. It is especially gratifying when a mother writes to me and tells me that she can finally feed her child a healthy protein that is free of peanuts," adds Barney.
Almonds are nutrient dense and considered a 'superfood'. The American Heart Association has specifically identified a daily intake of almonds with reduced cholesterol levels. In comparison with other nut butters, almond butter has the least saturated fat, and the most heart-healthy mono-saturated fat. The fact that Barney Butter sports a superlative taste, it can satisfy even those not striving for healthy foods. An Oregon school district has been offering Barney Butter in its school lunch since September 2008 not only due to concern about peanut allergies, but because students loved the taste and requested it.
Barney Butter features all natural almond butters in Smooth and Crunchy 16 oz. jars, gallon buckets for food service and convenient, on-the-go 90-Calorie Packets.
Barney Butter can also be found on the shelves of Whole Foods Markets, The Fresh Market stores, Henry's Farmers Markets and other independent retailers.
About Barney Butter and Jennifer Barney - Barney's Premium Foods was founded in 2006 by Jennifer Barney in her Fresno California home when she was searching for a healthy alternative to peanut butter for her four young children.

She is proud to use only California almonds, most of which grow within 40 miles of her plant.
