Peanuts contain about
8 grams of cholesterol-free plant protein per ounce, which is more than any other nut.
The Mississippi Peanut Growers Association is organized and operated for educational and scientific purposes, to bring together, for cooperation and coordination, all persons, both public and private, interested in enhancing the production, marketing, distribution, and utilization of peanuts.
An ounce of oil-roasted salted peanuts is an excellent source of niacin and manganese and a good source of fiber, phosphorus, vitamin E, folate, copper, and magnesium.
Peanut oil is trans fat-free, cholesterol-free, low in saturated fat, and one of the healthiest oils.
Eating Patterns & Snacking
