Go nuts over this Peanuts
Peanuts are not actually nuts, as the name would imply. Peanuts are a member of the legume family, and are closely related to peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas.
Also known as Groundnut, moongphali, moongfali, sing, singdana
Loaded with protein, fiber, healthy fats (monounsaturated fats), vitamins (vitamin E, folate niacin), minerals( manganese) and phytonutrients, peanuts are nutritious.
Peanuts are associated with reduced risks for chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and hypertension due to the presence of RESVERATROL, a phenolic ant-oxidant usually found in grapes.
Peanuts may also help you control your weight if you consume them in moderation.
Peanuts do not contain cholesterol.
Peanuts have a very low glycaemic index.
It is recommended that peanuts should undergo some processing like boiling, roasting prior to consumption. The largest danger of the consumption of raw peanuts is the possible presence of aflatoxin, a poison produced by a fungus that may be present on raw peanuts.They are not poisonous, and it is unlikely you'll get a huge amount of toxins from eating a handful.However at times it can lead to problems such as diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea
This Monsoon enjoy a handful of boiled or roasted Peanuts.
