Peanuts

Peanuts have been the most popular nut to consume for years, and it's not hard to understand why. Peanuts are so readily adaptable as a snack or as a companion for a variety of foods. How many of us have consumed peanuts at a baseball game, or example? Boiled peanuts are considered a delicacy in the Deep South, and peanut butter has been a part of American households for decades. Here at Fastachi, we pride ourselves on roasting the most marvelous peanuts to be found. Here's a bit more information on peanuts, why they are good for you, and the type of peanut products we offer.



Why Peanuts Are Amazing

One of the reasons peanuts became so popular in the United States was because of George Washington Carver. Dr. Carver discovered that the peanut plant helped to invigorate the soil that was damaged through aggressive cotton farming. Peanuts restored missing nutrients to the soil, so Dr. Carver began looking for recipes to add peanuts too. Peanut butter proved especially popular.

Peanuts are extremely high in folate, which is vital for a growing baby's development and helps to prevent birth defects such as spina bifida. Even if you aren't a baby, peanuts can help with your memory, and work to keep your brain sharp! People also eat peanuts to help fight heart disease as well.
