    You Ask, I Answer: Serving Sizes

    I looked at the nutrition label for Jif To Go and now I am extremely confused.

    The label lists two serving sizes.

    One is for the whole cup, [which contains] 390 calories.

    The [other serving size is for] “1/2 cup (32g)” which has 190 calories.

    Okay, fine. But then I look at the regular standard jar of Jif peanut butter, and its label says:”2 Tablespoons(32g)=190 calories.”

    [What I can’t understand] is how, according to these two labels, a half cup of peanut butter weighs as much as two tablespoons?

    Ah, good ol’ serving size puzzles.

    Let’s work this one out.

    The “1 cup” mentioned on the Jif-to-Go food label is not a literal 1 cup measurement, but rather refers to container (AKA “cup”) of Jif-to-Go, which contains four tablespoons of peanut butter.

    In other words, one Jif to Go cup (notice my wording — it is very different from saying “a cup of Jif To Go”) contains a quarter cup of peanut butter.

    Therefore, half a container of Jif To Go offers the standard two-tablespoon serving you see on peanut butter jars.

    Dizzy yet?
