Peanut butter: hero or villain?

In Brazil, peanuts are grown mainly in the Southeast, South, Midwest and Northeast regions, with the State of São Paulo being the largest producer, responsible for about 80% of the national production. It is a palatable food, low in cost and high in nutrients, it is highly energetic, composed of 48.7% of oils, these are composed of 80% of unsaturated fatty acids, it is a good source of vegetable protein, dietary fiber, vitamins Antioxidants, minerals (selenium, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin B3 and B6, manganese) and phytochemicals like resveratrol and other polyphenols.

When we consume the more “natural” versions of this cream, made only with peanuts of good origin and a little salt we can consider that it’s the good version. You can make your peanut butter at home, just buy raw peanut without skin, toast it and then hit the processor, if you want to step up you can put a little cinnamon, cocoa powder, dry grated coconut.

It tastes good and it’s higly functional!

Peanut butter becomes a villain when it’s added sugar, additives, sweeteners, hydrogenated fats. When you come across with this kind of villain, just run! Always read the label before you buy it. Choose the wholefood, meaning that always choose the ones with shredded peanuts.
