Along with their healthful nutritional profile, peanuts are a calorie-rich food, so they are most healthful when enjoyed in moderation.

Health Benefits:

  • Peanuts can improve hearth health for the people with diabetes. Peanuts contain more healthful monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats than they do saturated fats. This fat ratio makes peanuts better for the heart than fat sources with a higher proportion of saturated fats.
  • Eating peanut butter or peanuts may help women with obesity and a higher type 2 diabetes risk to manage their blood sugar levels.
  • Peanuts are very filling and can be considered an effective component of a weight loss diet.
  • Peanuts are a good source of dietary fiber. Fiber is a heart-healthful nutrient. Few studies have shown that eating fiber-rich foods improves blood cholesterol levels and lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
