The peanut (Arachis hypogaea) is a fascinating legume that develops uniquely. After fertilization, the flowers bend and burrow into the soil, where the pods form and ripen underground, containing 2 to 3 seeds each. Peanuts are a significant crop in many parts of the developing world, especially in West Africa and parts of India and Latin America. Known as the “Gold of Senegal,” peanuts provide income for nearly 40% of Senegal’s population. While primarily cultivated for oil extraction, peanuts are also enjoyed roasted or as peanut paste.
Peanut Butter: A Staple in Food Culture
Peanut butter is a spread made from ground peanuts and is a staple in both American and African food cultures. It is a legume, similar to beans and peas, offering less than 1% trans fatty acids, making it cholesterol-free and an excellent source of energy. It supports tissue development and antibody production.
Health Benefits of Peanuts
Contrary to common belief, peanuts are not nuts but legumes, offering an excellent source of vegetable protein. They are ideal for athletes, especially those involved in weight training, due to their nutritional value, taste, affordability, and health benefits. Despite being calorie-dense, peanuts are beneficial and should not be avoided.
Peanut paste is particularly valuable for bodybuilders as a natural source of calories and protein. It also provides folic acid (vitamin B9), vitamin E, magnesium, and resveratrol. Resveratrol, a natural antioxidant, antimicrobial agent produced by the peanut plant, helps fight against pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and fungi).
