24710Re: [israel-food] separating skippy
- Oct 16, 2013My guess is improper storage at the store/warehouse or even just proximity to the use by date.It shouldn't happen since all the major commercial brands of PB, including Skippy, all add a very small quantity of solid veg. fat to prevent separation.This said, it does happen every now and then that the PB has separated (yes- even Skippy!) or is much runnier than usual without the taste being affected in any way and no sign of rancidity or spoilage. If the date is good and the seal intact we just give it a good stir and carry on.ElanaOn Thu, Oct 17, 2013 at 7:01 AM, Sharon Beth-Halachmy <sharonbh@...> wrote:I store my PB upside down - the oil rises to the bottom of the jar, making it much easier to stir when you open it!

It does not smell bad, the seal was not bulged, it just is odd.
I called the manufacturer and their customer service person does not
I sent the US parent company an email via their online contact form, but
have yet to receive a response.
A second jar bought from the same store shows the same thing. Once I
knew to look for it, you can see it without breaking the seal.
Any ideas? Breakfast time is fast approaching. :-)
