Peanuts are a long-time favourite food of many people in the UK. They’re also one of the most popular foods in the world, and they can help you stay healthy. Peanuts are beneficial in a variety of ways, including helping to lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and reduce the risk for some chronic diseases. So, what are they good for? And how do they fit into your health portfolio? We take a look at how peanuts might be helpful for you—and maybe even impact your diet (or even your waistline!).
Nutrición Hospitalaria published: In various research, the relationship between eating peanuts and postprandial blood sugar, food intake, higher fat oxidation rate, and increased satiety has been examined. Despite varying portion sizes (42.5 to 63 g/day) and high-calorie content, there is no correlation between eating peanuts and a reduction in body fat. Large quantities, up to 70 g per day, were consumed, however, there were no alterations to the body's composition.
Nutrition Journal: In comparison to a peanut-free diet, persons with type 2 diabetes who consumed 46 g/day of peanuts and/or peanut butter during the 24-week study had higher ratios of the nutrients with cardioprotective effects (MUFA, PUFA, PUFA/saturated ratio, -tocopherol, niacin, and magnesium). Because the body weight, BMI, and WC decrease were the same as those who followed the ADA meal plan that excluded peanuts, the intervention provided evidence that the inclusion of peanuts and peanut butter was not obesogenic.
Additionally, adding high-oleic peanuts to an energy-restricted diet helped overweight participants burn fat and improve their body composition. Those who ate peanuts lost more weight than was anticipated by energy restriction, even though the energy restriction was identical across those who got or did not get peanuts. Particularly high-oleic peanuts boosted diet-induced thermogenesis in obese and overweight males, ostensibly via increasing the gene expression of uncoupling proteins (UCPs), as well as decreasing appetite through caloric compensation and boosting satisfaction. Furthermore, consuming a lot of high-oleic peanuts (50–70 g/day) for 12 weeks without limiting one's caloric intake had no impact on body weight or waist circumference.
Another randomized trial examined the acute intake of 42.5 g/day of whole peanuts without skins and peanut butter added to a morning meal with 75 g of accessible carbohydrates in obese women with a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The first meal NEFA and second-meal glycemic responses were reduced in breakfast meals that included whole peanuts or peanut butter. Additionally, they boosted the peptide YY levels while decreasing the appetite.
Ground-roasted peanut consumption of 63 g/day at breakfast also resulted in lower carbohydrate intake and postprandial glycemic response, which may assist to enhance glycemic control and minimize the risk of developing diabetes. According to the study, the reduced glycemic response shown following this processing approach may be the consequence of the peanuts' cell walls cleaving, releasing their fat content. Therefore, it is proposed that consuming peanuts (42.5–75 g/day) over three weeks, regardless of changes in body composition, enhances glycemic control, promotes satiety, and lowers NEFA concentration. As a result, adding peanuts to the diet enhances the quality of the food while simultaneously promoting satiety, boosting fat oxidation and thermogenesis, and lowering glycemic response. Furthermore, consuming 70 g of peanuts in large amounts did not cause weight gain.
To make including peanuts in your regular diet easier, they come in a variety of tastes. They can be consumed raw or blanched. We also have red-skin mini peanuts, which are smaller and tastier after toasting. If you like sweet snacks, Honey peanuts, caramelized peanuts, and honey chilli coatings are all available. We prepare them in a special Mediterranean manner by adding salt as well. You may also get the kinds of peanut snacks you choose from our online store.
