The major difference between peanut butter and jam is the ingredients from which they are made. Peanut butter is a paste produced by roasted peanuts, while the jam is made from various types of fruits. Peanut butter also contains other ingredients, such as vegetable oil and molasses.

Peanut butter has a fair amount of protein in it, and it contains essential nutrients vitamin E and niacin, and it also contains resveratrol, which is an antioxidant. Jam, on the other hand, is created from mashed up fruit, which is boiled with water and sugar and then stored in jars, which keep it from spoiling.

The result is usually a jelly-like substance. Jams will often have both the flesh and juice of the fruit. There are many types of different jams, such as strawberry, blueberry, grape, and cherry.

As the name suggests, peanut butter is a food item made from ground peanuts. You can make peanut butter by treating the paste of the roasted ground peanuts with ingredients such as vegetable oils, dextrose, salt, and sweeteners. On the other hand, the jam is a type of fruit preservative. At times, it can contain fleshy vegetables or fruit pieces. The process always starts by cutting the fruits into pieces, after which they are cooked, and crushed. Some people might decide to add other substances like preservatives or sweeteners. There are so many varieties of peanut butter out there; it all depends on the materials or ingredients used. While a variety of peanut butter is perfect for cookies, others are eaten with sandwiches. There are different varieties of jams as well. The fruit jams do not take too much time to cook. According to researches, peanut butter has more health benefits compared to jam.

Peanut butter and jelly are known to be two different types of spreads that you can use when you want to make a sandwich. There are some people who will place these two spreads together because they just work perfectly well. Peanut butter is a type of spread that is made out of peanuts. There are different levels of sweetness available depending on the amount of sugar that will be placed on each product. Jelly, on the other hand, is normally made from different fruits. They have been processed so that they can have the jelly consistency that a lot of people are familiar with right now. Jelly comes in different flavors and it is very likely that you can choose the flavor that you like the most to add to your peanut butter.
