The original PB2 Peanut Butter Powder formula has only 3 simple ingredients — roasted peanuts, salt and sugar. In other words, all of the basic nutty goodness that dogs love, without any of the filler or chemicals we’ve come to expect from a lot of other off-the-shelf brands.
And yes, the original PB2 peanut butter powder is perfectly safe for most dogs.
In this article we will first explore some of the bigger red flags to keep an eye out for when shopping different peanut butter products for your dog and then will use that information to evaluate the current lineup of various PB2 nut butter formulas (spoiler: not all of them are safe for dogs).
PB2 Pre + Probiotic Peanut Powder
Rating: Safe For Dogs
Ingredients: Roasted Peanuts, Inulin (from chicory root), Salt, Bacillus Coagulans
PB2 Pre + Probiotic Peanut Powder is a new release. Unlike the other products listed here, at the time this article was written PB2 Pre + Probiotic Peanut Butter is not currently available on Amazon or at Walmart. While some readers may recognize chicory as a coffee alternative, it doesn’t actually contain any caffeine or theobromine. Bacillus Coagulans is often used similarly to lactobacillus and other probiotics as “good” bacteria.
We are a little skeptical about any benefits Inulin, Bacillus Coagulans, or other “pro biotics” may lend an otherwise healthy dog, both of these ingredients are commonly included in probiotic foods marketed to dogs and should generally be regarded as safe.
