Peanuts Join Red Wine, Blueberries as Power Food - Growing Georgia | Atlanta Food Industry | Scoop.it

After red wine, red grape juice and dark chocolate, roasted peanuts are one of the important sources of resveratrol. “And when consumed with skins, they provide about three times more resveratrol” compared to leaving off the skins, accoording to food scientist Anna Resurreccion.

 

“Roasted peanuts with skins also have antioxidant properties equivalent to blueberries, but more than in red wine, green tea or cocoa drinks,” said Resurreccion, who has studied peanuts for 25 years.
