TerrasanaPeanut crunchy peanut butter - organic
Peanut crunchy peanut butter, without added salt, has a unique flavour and is very popular but it is also precious for health as source of proteins, healthy fats, vitamins (especially B and E) and minerals. Without salt, this paste allows seasoning to taste. Crunchy, it gives a nice crispy side to the food it is added to and invites to chew better the food, a health must and often a discovery of multiple flavours.
Peanuts, although less rich in the essential amino acid lysine than the other leguminous vegetables, contain a good proportion of amino acids and healthy fats (mostly mono-and polyunsaturated). They have preventive properties against cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes and are also useful in weight management because, as nuts, during a moderate slimming regime they improve perseverance, allowing increased weight loss compared to a low-fat diet. Peanuts have moreover an antioxidant capacity comparable to broccoli and tomatoes and contain a lot of resveratrol (even larger quantities than red grapes), a naturally antimicrobial antioxidant substance which many studies confirm as being anticancer.
Peanut butter is also known as earth-nut, ground nut, goober pea, monkey nut, pygmy nut or pig nut paste.
Peanuts, corn, nuts, cereals, leguminous vegetables ... may be contaminated with a mouldiness, invisible to the naked eye, which produces a carcinogenic toxin called aflatoxin. To make this mouldiness turn out, both heat and humidity are necessary and therefore it mainly concerns products grown in hot and humid countries. Fortunately European legislation was strengthened in 1999 by lowering permitted aflatoxin levels and since 2003, Europe imposes systematic control of the batches, which must be returned or destroyed in case of non-compliance. Because of this fact the of cultivation- and conservation-conditions in the countries of origin have been greatly improved in order be able to offer quality products henceforth. One of the possible preventive measures is a quick drying of the harvests by roastening.
