When it comes to eating peanuts, peanut butter, and peanut oil, the research is clear: they benefit our health. Large population studies show that when eaten in small amounts daily, peanuts reduce the risk of many chronic diseases (Sabate, 2006; 2009). Human feeding studies also show that they help manage weight and provide many key nutrients that are important to our diets (Sabate, 2006; 2009).
The myriad of healthy components in peanuts offers natural nutrition to all populations and age groups. You can feel good getting filled up on a crunchy pack of peanuts or a spoonful of peanut butter, knowing that each bite is leading to having a better body and a better diet.
