Fitzgerald - - A South Georgia businessman is introducing a familiar product with a whole new twist. 

It's called PB 2.

J.C. Bell invented a powder form of peanut butter that he says has 75 % less fat than most peanut butter you'll find in stores. All you have to do is add water to the mixture and stir it up.

It took almost 2 years to get the product on the market.    

"The way we make this, we roast peanuts and blanch them just like you're making regular full fat peanut butter. We take that paste and put it into a 50,000 pound hydraulic press and squeeze it. We squeeze the oil out," Bell says.

His company has met with several schools to make the low fat mixture a part of school menus.

Friday, he met with a company to discuss distributing the product around the world.
