National Peanut Board – Peanuts: Energy for the Good Life
The goodness of USA-grown peanuts goes beyond the taste we all know and love, they’re also packed with nutrition. Peanuts have more energy-boosting protein than any other nut and more antioxidants than broccoli, carrots or green tea. And with more than 30 vitamins and nutrients, peanuts are a Superfood. In addition, peanuts are also naturally cholesterol and gluten-free. No wonder peanuts are the most preferred nut by consumers.
The latest U.S. Dietary Guidelines call for eating a more plant-based diet — rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and other plant-based foods. With 7 grams of protein per serving, peanuts fit the bill without sacrificing flavor.
