Are peanuts healthy or not?

  1. Indispensable with a drink and delicious as a snack: a handful of peanuts. But are peanuts healthy or should they be left out? Some say peanuts are sneaky fatteners; others say that peanuts contribute to the waste process. In addition, various health effects are attributed to it.

  1. For example, peanuts are said to be healthy, because they reduce the risk of Alzheimer's, have a cholesterol-lowering effect, contain anti-cancer substances and help to keep the heart and blood vessels healthy. That sounds good! Let's quickly find out if peanuts are healthy and which health claims are true.

What are peanuts?

  1. They are on the shelf with nuts, between the cashew, pecan, hazel and walnuts. They also taste nutty. Yet peanuts are not nuts, they are actually legumes. How about that? The Peanut plant, on which the peanuts grow (or actually underneath, because peanuts grow underground), belongs to the legume family.

The Peanut plant, on which the peanuts grow (or actually underneath, because peanuts grow underground), belongs to the butterfly flower family.

  1. These are legume-bearing plants, just like the plants that grow peas, beans, broad beans and soybeans. When the peanuts are harvested, they are first put to dry. Just think of the â € ˜old-fashionedâ € ™ doppindaâ € ™ s; these are peanuts in their pure form. However, most peanuts are roasted and salted before disappearing into bags as snacks.

Did you know…?

  1. In some southern parts of the United States, the peanuts are cooked undried, while still green, and eaten like beans. Sounds good!

Nutritional value of peanuts

  1. Looking at the nutritional value, they make a nice contribution to your health. So a handful of peanuts is a great snack, especially if you choose the raw and unsalted variety.

Are peanuts good for the heart?

  1. Peanuts are said to be healthy for the heart and blood vessels. But is that also the case? Would a handful of peanuts a day reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease? According to the Heart Foundation and the Nutrition Center, regular consumption of unsalted nuts and peanuts is part of a healthy diet.

  1. Peanuts contain a high content of healthy fats; the unsaturated fatty acids â € “which have a beneficial effect on the LDL cholesterol level in the blood â €“ and thereby reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Resvera-what?

  1. In recent years more and more has become known about the substance resveratrol, which is found in red wine, grapes, blueberries, but also in peanuts. Although there is still plenty of research into the effect of resveratrol, it has already become clear that the substance has the properties of antioxidants.

  1. Antioxidants fight bacteria, have an antiviral effect and reduce the risk of cancer. Resveratrol, due to its high antioxidant effect, therefore also has a beneficial effect on heart and blood vessels. Another good reason, then, to nibble some peanuts!

  1. Important note 😠‰ from the researchers: it really concerns half a hand, about 15 grams of peanuts a day and no more. It is therefore not the case that the more peanuts you eat, the greater the health effects. Unfortunately.

Do peanuts make peanuts fat?

  1. So far it is clear that peanuts are healthy. They are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fatty acids. But then the big question is whether they are sneaky fatteners or contribute to weight loss. Opinions are divided on this.

  1. While one group claims that the high calorific value of peanuts makes you gain weight, the other group argues that peanuts and nuts in general - because of their high protein and fiber contents, they quickly ensure a feeling of satiety, which in turn contributes to the slimline.

  1. Probably the truth lies somewhere in the middle. As with everything - and therefore also for healthy products - too much is never good. Half a hand or a tablespoon of unsalted peanuts or nuts are a perfect and healthy snack. This way you enjoy the taste, the health effects and you can be sure that you will not get fat.
