Roasted peanuts are an old-time family favorite. These are no run-of-the-mill peanuts. Crack open these salted, roasted in-shell peanuts as a mid-afternoon snack, while cheering on your favorite team, or really anytime at all. We bet they’ll be the best you ever had.
Health Benefits Of Roasted Peanuts
1) Excellent Source of Antioxidants: Research published in the journal Food Chemistry shows that roasted peanuts contain higher concentrations of antioxidants than blackberries, strawberries, apples, carrots or beets. The process of roasting actually increases the peanuts’ p-coumaric acid levels, which improves their overall antioxidant capacity by 22%.
2) Protein Powerhouse: A serving of roasted peanuts provides seven grams of protein. Snacking on high-protein snacks can help you stay full throughout the day and prevent binge eating.
3) Fiber-Filled: Just a handful of roasted peanuts (approx. one ounce) offers four grams of dietary fiber. Not only can fiber help you stay full longer, it can also regulate blood sugar levels, lower LDL cholesterol and promote a healthy digestive system.
