Peanuts are rich in important nutrients, above all the high protein content (the highest among nuts) and the high magnesium content (the second highest among nuts). In addition, the B vitamins, vitamin E, folic acid, manganese, phosphorus and zinc are very extensively contained in peanuts [1 and 3].
Among other things, peanuts are said to have a positive effect on heart disease due to the fatty acids they contain, which in turn can be closely related to a lower death rate.
Peanuts, especially the skin, contain many polyphenols . Phenols, in turn, are antioxidants and these have, among other things, the potential to prevent cancer, inhibit inflammation, render free radicals harmless and thus protect cells .
Peanuts contain a high antioxidant capacity of 3166 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).
By consuming foods rich in antioxidants, the body's defense mechanism can be strengthened and an overproduction of free radicals can be balanced out. An ORAC daily requirement of between 5000 and 7000 is recommended .
Our raw, blanched organic Fairtrade peanuts are a rarity, because the peanuts are usually roasted immediately and their actual taste is changed and adulterated very quickly. Raw peanuts taste even stronger and stronger, or even slightly bitter. The consistency is not that different from roasted peanuts, so roasting doesn't bring any benefits here.
Origin and manufacture:
We source our organic Fairtrade peanuts exclusively from Uzbekistan. This is the only way we can be sure that the quality meets our high standards.
The peanuts grow in fields around Samarkand. The fields are largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The 1000 or so farmers who take care of the sowing, ripening and harvesting belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba, or Turob Bobo. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
The peanuts are only plowed by the plant when they are sufficiently dry. After the careful harvest, the outer shell is removed from the peanuts and the peanuts are blanched so that they peel off the red skin of the peanuts. Finally, the peanuts are gently dried with the help of the sun. The solar drying method used is very environmentally friendly and gentle on the product.
Once in Austria, the peanuts are made by default depressurized. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. Regular controls guarantee a very high quality.
