Where do the peanuts in Bega Peanut Butter come from?

We make it a priority to source Australian ingredients where possible, including our nuts! Australian peanuts are in extremely short supply so we are working hard with our Aussie farmers to help increase peanut production.

Our most popular Peanut Butter contains at least 85% peanuts which are sourced from Australia and Argentina.

For those who love 100% Aussie goodness, our Bega Simply Nuts range is made from 100% Australian Peanuts grown in Queensland.

For specific information on ingredient origin, refer to the label of your favourite product or visit Our Range.

We also make sure that none of our peanut butter products contain any GMO ingredients, artificial colours or flavours.

Is Bega Peanut Butter suitable for Vegetarians or Vegans?

Yes! All Bega Peanut Butter products are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Is Bega Peanut Butter Gluten Free?

It sure is!

How do I store Bega Peanut Butter?

Our original Bega Peanut Butter (in the yellow jar) is shelf stable and once opened, can be stored in the pantry right up until the best before date listed on pack. We wouldn’t recommend keeping it in the fridge, as it makes it harder to spread.

Bega Simply Nuts (our natural peanut range) is shelf stable and once opened, can be stored in the pantry right up until the best before date listed on pack. The separation of oil in a natural peanut butter is completely normal so once opened, make sure you give the product a good stir to mix the peanut oil in with the peanut butter. If you like your natural peanut butter a little thicker, you can store Bega Simply Nuts in the fridge (once it has been opened), just be sure to stir in the natural peanut oils before you place it in the fridge.

Can I recycle my Bega Peanut Butter jar?

Absolutely! You can recycle the lid and the jar and help do your part for our planet. We always recommending checking with your local council on their recycling guidelines.
