Peanut butter doesn't usually bother me, but for some reason my CD doesn't like PB M&Ms or Reeses Pieces and I had to cut those out of my diet. Everybody is different.

I seem to tolerate very small amounts of peanut butter that is 100% peanuts and smooth. But sometimes i get very bad pain i think when i eat too much of it. So i am scared of it but it is nutritious and i like it. I try to eat less than a teaspoon full per day.

Prior to the Crohn's I could eat any kind of nuts with out problems. Now they have become a no go food for me along with many other rich foods. They cause cramping, constipation, diarrhea and alot of gas.

Smooth peanut butter is one of my safe foods, crunchy no way but smooth is good!

I make it myself so there's no added sugar or anything else in there.

I eat a ton of it...that and tahini. Stick to all natural. Only one ingredient. (Or 2 if there is salt). You canít compare eating natural peanut butter and say a peanut butter snack. Junk food is junk food and should be eliminated as much as possible. When something has a long list of ingredient sometimes hard to tell whatís causing the distress.

My stomach simply refuses to tolerate peanuts in all different kinds.

I like to cook/make my own food, and I used to make a homemade peanut butter before I was diagnosed with Crohn's and sadly enough I can't even take a spoonful of it without my stomach acting up.

The best way is to try it in small proportions and see how your stomach reacts.
