Protein peanut butter
Protein peanut butter can be included in your healthy diet as long as you choose the right product to use.
What is peanut butter
Peanut butter is a relatively unprocessed food. Basically it contains peanuts, which in most cases are roasted and ground to become a paste. However, this is not the case for many commercial brands that contain various added ingredients such as sugar, vegetable oils and even trans fats. These ingredients are a factor in the onset of various health problems.
Pure peanut butter is rich in heart-healthy fats and is a good source of protein in itself, which can be useful for vegetarians who want to include more protein in their diet. The jar also contains vitamins and minerals including vitamin B, iron, potassium and vitamin E.
Useful peanut butter
Pure peanut butter is a fairly balanced energy source that supplies all three macronutrients. A 100 g serving of peanut butter contains:
- Carbs: 20 grams of carbs (13% of calories), 6 of which are fiber.
- Protein: 25 grams of protein (15% of calories), which is a lot compared to most other plant foods.
- Fat: 50 grams of fat, about 72% of calories.
As you can see, pure peanut butter contains only 20% carbohydrates, making it suitable for a low-carb diet. In addition, eating pure peanut butter results in a very low rise in blood sugar, which means it is a suitable food for people with type 2 diabetes. These benefits are partly due to oleic acid, one of the main fats in peanuts, as well as the antioxidants found in pure peanut butter.
Although it is quite rich in protein, it is lower in the essential amino acid methionine than animal proteins. For those who rely on peanut butter or beans as their main source of protein, methionine deficiency is a real risk.
Because pure peanut butter is very high in fat, a 100-gram serving contains a hefty 588 calories. However, consuming moderate amounts of pure peanut butter is appropriate on a weight loss diet. Half of the fat in a jar of peanut butter is from oleic acid, which is a healthy type of monounsaturated fat. Among other things, it provides improved insulin sensitivity. Pure peanut butter also contains some linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid found in most vegetable oils.
Peanut butter full of vitamins and minerals
Pure peanut butter is quite rich in vitamins and minerals. A 100-gram serving of peanut butter provides:
- Vitamin E: 45% of recommended daily allowance (RDA)
- Vitamin B3 (niacin): 67% of the RDA
- Vitamin B6: 27% of the RDA
- Folate: 18% of RDA
- Magnesium: 39% of the RDA
- Copper: 24% of RDA
- Manganese: 73% of RDA
In addition, pure peanut butter is high in biotin and contains good amounts of vitamin B5, iron, potassium, zinc and selenium.
Peanut oil rich in antioxidants
Like most real foods, quality peanut butter contains many other biologically active nutrients that can deliver real health benefits. Good peanut butter is quite rich in antioxidants such as p-coumaric acid and resveratrol, which is associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
