If you need raw peanuts, you can't find them any bigger or fresher than these. Peanuts are high in Protein, low in saturated fat and helps lower LDL cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. A study by 2 biologists from Pennsylvania State University and the University of Rochester reveals that diets that include peanuts are as heart-healthy as those containing olive oil and more heart-healthy than many low-fat diets. In fact, subjects who consumed peanuts were found to have lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels than before they began the study. A study by the USDA Agricultural Research Service discovered that Reservatrol, a naturally occurring phytochemical, is found in peanuts. This compound, which is also present in red wine and grapes, has been associated with breaking down LDL cholesterol in the blood, which can help prevent the start of heart disease. Price is per pound.
