Peanuts Caramelised Appetizer

The peanut is a type of crunchy nut that has been known to mankind for centuries and has many beneficial nutrients for health

 

The peanut is actually a legume, but it has almost all the qualities of other popular edible nuts, such as pistachios, almonds etc.

 

It is believed that the peanut originated in the central Americas, from where it spread to the rest of the world with the Spanish explorers.

 

Today, it is one of the most widely cultivated oilseeds and a commercial crop established mainly in China, India, African nations and the United States.

 

Health benefits of peanuts:

Peanuts are rich in energy (567 calories per 100 g) and contain nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimal health.

Peanuts are good for cholesterol

It has sufficient levels of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), especially oleic acid.

MUFA help to lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increase the level of HDL or "good cholesterol" in the blood.

Research studies suggest that the Mediterranean diet, rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, helps prevent coronary artery disease and the risk of stroke by favoring a healthy serum lipid profile.

 

Source of protein:

Peanut kernels are a good source of dietary protein; they make up fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth and development.

Prevents cancer, heart disease and degenerative diseases.

Research studies have shown that peanuts contain high concentrations of polyphenolic antioxidants, mainly p-coumaric acid.

This compound has been thought to reduce the risk of stomach cancer by limiting the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines in the stomach.

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 diseases, Alzheimer's disease and viral/fungal infections.

In addition, studies suggest that resveratrol may reduce the risk of stroke by altering molecular mechanisms in blood vessels.

This reduces susceptibility to vascular damage by decreasing the activity of angiotensin, a systemic hormone responsible for constricting blood vessels that would raise blood pressure, and increases the production of the vasodilator hormone, nitric oxide.

 

Antioxidant:

Recent research studies suggest that roasting/boiling increases antioxidant bioavailability in peanuts.

Boiled peanuts were found to have a two- and fourfold increase in antioxidant isoflavones bioquanine-A and genistein content, respectively.

 

Rich in vitamins and minerals:

The beans are an excellent source of vitamin E (?-tocopherol): it has around 8 g per 100 g.

Vitamin E is a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant that helps maintain mucosal and skin integrity by protecting against harmful oxygen free radicals.

Peanuts are packed with many important groups of B-complex vitamins, such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamine, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6 and folates.

100 g of peanuts provide around 85% RDI of niacin, which contributes to health and blood flow to the brain.

Peanuts are a rich source of minerals such as copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

 

Nutritional benefits: Although each type of nut has a specific combination of nutrients, in general, most are a source of vitamins B1, B6, E and folic acid and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus and iron, among others. The fat in nuts is predominantly unsaturated, a type of fat that contributes to maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels.

 

May contain traces of other nuts and soy.
