How Many Peanuts Does It Take to Make a Jar of Peanut Butter?

As part of our ‘Wanna Know Wednesday’ segment a listener wanted to know how many peanuts it took to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter.

How the topic originally came up was while going through our ‘Big Book of Stuff’ we mentioned it was National Peanut Day (9/13).

That, in turn, raised the question of how many peanuts it took to produce a jar of peanut butter.

To find such an answer you start where? – by Googling the National Peanut Board of course. And low-and-behold the first ‘Fun Fact’ that came up was the answer.

It takes a total of 540 peanuts to make one 12-ounce jar of peanut butter. By law, any product labeled ‘peanut butter’ in the United States must be at least 90% peanuts.

So, now you know.

If you’re interested, there are a whole bunch of interesting facts regarding peanuts on the National Peanut Board website.

And feel free to use our peanut question this evening if you’re meeting your friends after work. You may get a free drink out of the deal.
