So what makes this childhood favorite snack such a powerhouse of antioxidants, proteins, vitamins and minerals? Well of course: peanuts! Peanuts are a truly powerful nut that encompasses all the goodness of nature in its essence.

First their fat is good fat – 12 grams of the 14 grams total fat are unsaturated – the kind that we should eat more often.  As part of a balanced diet, peanuts and peanut butter provide great tasting nutrition.

Second they are packed in plant-based protein extremely important for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. With seven grams per ounce, peanuts have more protein than any nut.  Protein is essential for muscle growth and maintenance.

What’s more peanuts are loaded with Vitamin E, the dietary antioxidant that helps to protect cells from oxidative stress; a normal yet damaging physiological process; magnesium, folate, copper, phosphorus and 9 grams of fiber per 100 gram serving among more than 30 traced minerals.

And last scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, including peanuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
