Peanuts – Roasted Nigerian Peanut are rich in monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that is emphasized in the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet. Studies of diets with a special emphasis on Africa peanuts have shown that this little legume is a big ally for a healthy heart.
In addition to their monounsaturated fat content, Africa peanuts feature an array of other nutrients that, in numerous studies, have been shown to promote heart health.
Africa Peanuts are good sources of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese.
Africa Peanuts provide resveratrol, the phenolic antioxidant also found in red grapes and red wine that is thought to be responsible for the French paradox: the fact that in France, people consume a diet that is not low in fat, but have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared to the U.S.
