Peanuts

Diet Nutrition

Peanuts have a very high protein content and a significant amounts of iron, zinc and magnesium. In particular, their high protein and iron content makes them an excellent replacement for red meat in any diet, particularly for vegans and vegetarians.

Peanuts are one of the few food sources of vitamin D.

Peanuts are the most common nut allergen. Peanuts, like all nuts, retain their vitamins and minerals better if bought in their shells. Many peanuts, including peanut butter, are sold with a high added sodium content. It is best to buy unsalted peanuts and peanut butter.
