About peanuts:

Although you might think that peanuts are a type of nuts but in reality they are a type of legumes. The pods of peanuts grow underground and for that reason it is oftentimes called Arachis hypogaea. The term hypogaea itself means “underground”. Peanuts actually help in injecting nitrogen into the soil thereby increasing fertility of the soil. A type of symbiotic bacteria resides in their root nodules that produce ammonia from nitrogen. The peanut plant utilizes this ammonia to make necessary proteins and the bacteria in its turn lives off the sugars produced by the plant.

Nutritional value of peanuts:

As it is rightly said, proteins are building blocks of life and peanuts are a great source of protein. An average cup of peanuts contains about 38 grams of protein which the body needs for doing its day to day activities.

Fats:


If you want your diet to be healthy then it must include fat. Although you might think that the ideal diet has to be fat free, it is not actually so.
