Why do my baked goods turn green when I use SunButter in place of peanut butter?

When substituting SunButter in your existing recipe, you may have to reduce the baking soda/powder by about 1/3. The chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) in sunflower seeds reacts with the baking soda/powder when baked, causing the green color when the cookies cool. This is completely harmless! Depending on the recipe, a splash of lemon juice may help. You can also check out our tried and tested SunButter recipes.

Why is there oil on the top of my SunButter?

While our foodservice products are formulated to prevent separation, sometimes natural separation may occur and it may be necessary to stir the product to mix in the oil.
