The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating : 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
Unlike natural, home-made peanut butter, Disano Peanut Butter has added hydrogenated vegetable oils which are a source of transfats and transfats are harmful. Transfats are known to be responsible for a wide range of diseases. 
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 4- (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
Peanuts are high in fibre, nutrient dense and a healthy wholesome food. Studies show that people including nuts in their diet lower their risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
However, the fact that the manufacturers of this product have used hydrogenated vegetable oil which contains trans fat gives this a low rating.
Ingredients of concern in Disano Peanut Butter Creamy

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (rapeseed)

Sugar
This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose.  We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
Sugar is a carbohydrate found naturally in a host of different foods from lactose in milk to the fructose in fruit and honey. In fact, we need some sugar in our diets to supply ready energy to fuel our muscles and keep our brains active. The problem is that many processed foods have added sugar which supplies energy in the form of calories – and very little else. This means our body has to draw on the nutrients from the rest of our diet to process it and this can affect our health, including our immunity – leaving us more prone to bugs and colds. A high intake of sugar causes our blood sugar levels to shoot up, giving us that feel-good ‘high’ followed by a crashing slump which leaves us tired, irritable and craving more sugary foods. It’s a vicious cycle that may be contributing to our weight problems as well as health concerns like diabetes and heart disease.
Salt
High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (rapeseed)
Partially Hydrogenated and Hydrogenated fats are a source of trans fatty acids or “transfats”, which are harmful to health. Transfats increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, cancer and many other ailments.
Transfats are toxic and some cities like New York have banned them from use in restaurants.
Transfats have been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with risk of coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death. They may also be responsible for alzheimer’s disease, cancer, liver disease and many more ailments
Other ingredients that are in the product but not a major source of concern in our opinion are:
Roasted peanuts, 
Palm oil
