Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

On second thought, Monkey nuts, cracker nuts, spicy niys, wasabi nuts, etc DO NOT declare that the product contains peanuts.  Withdrawal of the product was necessary.  FoodieDoc, Anna Resurreccion, Ph.D., CFS

What is the Difference Between a Food Allergy, Food Intolerance and Food Sensitivity? - IFT.org

What is the Difference Between a Food Allergy, Food Intolerance and Food Sensitivity? - IFT.org | Peanuts, bioactive superfood in a shell | Scoop.it

What is the Difference Between a Food Allergy, Food Intolerance and Food Sensitivity?

 

"Eight foods account for 90 percent of all food-allergic reactions: milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. While a lot of people will eventually grow out of allergies to milk, eggs, wheat or soy, allergies to peanuts and shellfish tend to be longer lasting and impose severe symptoms"-- Aurora Saulo. .

 

While most people define any negative reaction to food as a food allergy, many actually suffer from a food sensitivity or intolerance. This videoclip  from  the Institute of Food Technoologissts, IFT, features Aurora Saulo, professor and extension specialist in food technology at University of Hawaii Manoa,

 

Dr. Saulo Internationally recognized specialist on food safety,    discusses  food allergies, food intolerances and food sensitivities. This story is curated by FoodieDoc, Anna Resurreccion, Ph.D.  Both

Drs. Saulo and Resurreccion are Fellows of the IFT.

Muscadine Grape Resveratrol. Home grown, natura... | Peanuts, bioactive superfood in a shell | Scoop.it

Muscadinex is made from pure North Carolina Muscadine grape extract. Now you can take all American resveratrol, ellagic acid and quercetin.

Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

This article is not about peanuts but about resveratrol, a polyphenolic antioxidant compound found in peanuts.

 

Science has not shown whether more resveratrol than what one gets in wine is beneficial to humans. For now, it is prudent to eat/drink more food and beverages rich in these bioactives. The benefits of loading up with supplements contains these poly phenolic anti-oxidants has not been fully elucidated. Wine, peanuts, grapes are good food/beverage source.

Flavor and Antioxidant Capacity of Peanut Paste and Peanut Butter Supplemented with Peanut Skins - Hathorn - 2012 - Journal of Food Science - Wiley Online Library

Flavor and Antioxidant Capacity of Peanut Paste and Peanut Butter Supplemented with Peanut Skins - Hathorn - 2012 - Journal of Food Science - Wiley Online Library | Peanuts, bioactive superfood in a shell | Scoop.it

My former  graduate student, Dr. Lotis Francisco and I conducted  conducted several studies that revealed the high concentration of health beneficial polyphenolic antioxidents iin peanut skins.    

 

Scientists from North Carolina State University studied their use in peanut butter:

Peanut skins are a low-value residue material from peanut processing which contain naturally occurring phenolic compounds. The use of this material to improve antioxidant capacity and shelf-life of foods can add value to the material and improve the nutritional value of foods. The improved nutritional qualities and unchanged flavor profile occurring with low levels of peanuts skins in peanut paste and peanut butter suggest potential application of this technology in various food industries.
