Health Note:

Peanuts and peanut butter are nutritious! Peanut butter was invented around 1890 as a health food for undernourished patients. To this day, peanut butter provides an inexpensive source of plant protein, monounsaturated fats, and many nutrients.

One ounce of peanuts is a good source of protein and contains several vitamins and minerals. Peanuts are good sources of vitamin E and B vitamins. They supply minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium and zinc
