DID YOU KNOW?
The peanut, also known as the groundnut is a legumecrop grown mainly for its edible seeds. It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers. As a legume, the peanut belongs to the botanical family and related to both peas and beans.
Peanuts are similar in taste and nutritional profile to tree nuts such as walnuts and almonds, and as a culinary nut are often served in similar ways in Western cuisines. The botanical definition of a "nut" is a fruit whose ovary wall becomes very hard at maturity. Using this criterion, the peanut is not a true nut, but rather a legume. However, for culinary purposes and in common English language usage, peanuts are usually referred to as nuts.
KEY HEALTH BENEFITS
High in Copper
Health benefits of ROASTED PEANUTS
Roasted Peanuts are high in dietary fibre. The soluble dietary fibre in the peanuts plays a role in glucose absorption and maintaining a healthy blood cholesterol level, while the insoluble dietary fibre helps to keep the gut healthy and contributes to regular laxation, thereby helping help to treat constipation.
Roasted Peanuts are a source of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA’s). Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats (such as MUFA’s) in the diet, contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
Roasted Peanuts are high in copper (30 g serving). Copper aids in the formation of bone. It also contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and nervous system.
Roasted Peanuts are a source of manganese (30 g serving). Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue. It is necessary for normal bone formation, the formation of cartilage and lubrication of joints. It also contributes to cell protection from free radical damage.
Roasted Peanuts are a source of zinc (30 g serving). Zinc is necessary for normal immune function and cell division. It promotes healing of wounds. It contributes to the normal metabolism of macronutrients. It also contributes to cognitive function, DNA synthesis, fertility and reproduction, maintenance of normal hair, skin, nails, bones and vision. It contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and has a role in the process of cell division. It is necessary for normal taste and smell and is a constituent of insulin and many vital enzymes. Sufficient intake and proper absorption of zinc is needed to maintain proper vitamin E levels in blood and increases the absorption of vitamin A.
Roasted Peanuts are a source of potassium (containing more than 200 mg potassium per 30 g serving). Potassium is necessary for normal water and electrolyte balance. It contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and muscle function. Potassium also contributes to normal blood pressure and regular heart rhythm.
Roasted, Unsalted Peanuts are very low in sodium. A high intake of calcium, magnesium and potassium, together with a low sodium intake, is associated with protection against bone demineralization, arterial hypertension, insulin resistance, and overall cardiovascular risk.
