Peanut butter brand Mayver’s is adding five new products to its offering, which aim to offer extra nutrients in each spread.

Mayver’s Super Peanut Butters and Tree Nut Butters look to target consumers who are interested in “conveniently and quickly boosting their nutrient intake via everyday foods”.

The Super Peanut Butters have added flaxseed, premium organic MCT oil, and an algae-based omega-3.

“For children or adults who don’t enjoy eating fish or swallowing tablets but do love peanut butter, Mayver’s Omega-3 Super Peanut Butter is a tastier way to get an extra dose of goodness into your diet,” said Mayver’s owner Paul Raff.

“100 per cent plant powered, our Probiotic Super Peanut Butter contains both probiotics and prebiotics and is mixed with the delicious taste of Mayver’s Peanut Butter, to help your body optimise its gut and immune health.”

Mayver’s has also developed Tree Nut Butters – including Almond Butter and Hazelnut Cashew and Cacao Butter – to its range, which offer an alternative to chocolate spreads.

The five new products - Probiotic Super Peanut Butter; Omega-3 Super Peanut; Dark Roast Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter; Almond Butter, and Hazelnut Cashew and Cacao Butter – are now available in Coles stores nationwide.
