Peanuts were known to ancient people as the "fruit of longevity", which is a great indication of how rich they are in nutrients. In fact, peanuts contain more than just protein, fat, and carbohydrates. They also contain unsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, vitamin B1 and B2, beta carotene, niacin, and other nutrients. For example, the lecithin and phosphatidylserine contained in peanuts are vital to the nervous system. They delay deterioration of brain function and also enhance the memory of teens and children. In Chinese medicine, cooked peanuts are temperate in nature and non-toxic. They have the effect of nourishing the lungs, stomach, and strengthening the spleen. Those who have a poor appetite due to a weak digestive system can fortify their digestive system and also ingest more nutrition through eating some peanuts with each meal.However, people often think only of calories when peanuts are mentioned nowadays. In fact, although peanuts are high in calories, you can enjoy their health benefits without gaining weight as long as you eat only a small amount each day. But as peanuts can easily oxidize and go bad at room temperature due to their high unsaturated fatty acid content, they can easily become moist and affected with aflatoxigenic Fungi and produce aflatoxin if stored under the wrong conditions. This is why many health-conscious people are wary of consuming peanut products.Gojinshan Peanut Brittle makes top quality peanut snacks which allow people to enjoy peanuts without a care in the world. The owner's wife said humbly that peanut brittle is simply a common snack for the children of farmers. Almost every mother on a farm knows how to make it.
