Power-Packed Properties of High Oleic Peanuts

In a nutshell, (yes, we said it) not all peanuts were created equal!

High oleic peanuts vs. regular peanuts

Montagu sources only high oleic peanuts for our peanut products.

High oleic peanuts contain more than 75% oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid (good fat) which reduces LDL (bad cholesterol) and boosts HDL (good cholesterol). They contain more monounsaturated fatty acids than several vegetable oils.


Longer shelf life

They last up to 15 times longer than average peanuts and are easily stored for long-term freshness.

Studies indicate that high oleic peanuts take 10 times longer to oxidise (go rancid) than regular

Increased flavour and flavour stability

High oleic peanuts are more full-flavoured than regular peanuts.

Lowered risk of cardiovascular disease

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that high oleic peanuts had “enhanced oil chemistry” that reduced risk for cardiovascular disease.

They lower triglycerides, fats known to increase risk for heart disease.

Blood sugar support

High oleic peanuts help Type 2 diabetes sufferers manage their sugar levels.
