Peanuts are the legumes that originated in South America and are rich in protein, fat, and various healthy nutrients. They also contain plenty of potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and B vitamins. Despite being high in calories, peanuts are nutrient-rich and low in carbohydrates. These are small-sized, crunchy nuts which vary in colour from light brown to deep red.

Health benefits

  1. Peanut kernels are a good source of dietary protein; compose fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth and development. (1)

  2. Peanuts are an excellent source of resveratrol, another polyphenolic antioxidant. Resveratrol has been found to have a protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease, and viral/fungal infections. (1)

  3. Peanuts Are an Excellent Source of biotin. Biotin is an enormously beneficial nutrient for your physiological well-being. Biotin is involved in dozens of enzymatic reactions in the body, including processes that regulate the expression of your genes. (2)

  4. Peanuts Contain Copper. Although often overlooked in dietary considerations, copper is necessary for several important physiological processes. In particular, copper forms a crucial part of enzymes that govern energy production and neural activity. (2)

Selection Guide

Try to buy unshelled (intact outer shell) nuts instead of processed ones. They should be free from cracks, mold, and spots and free of rancid smell.


Peanut allergy affects 1-2% of the world's population. It is dangerous, and usually lifelong. Although there is no feasible solution to peanut allergy at present, many methods have shown great promise. (3)
