- Peanuts do not contain trans fat and have 52 percent monosaturated and 33 percent polyunsaturated fat content.
- The fat in peanuts helps maintain our immune system with a natural anti-inflammatory function to fight disease and infection. Unsaturated fat is a component of cell membranes, called phospholipids, which is needed for cell growth and daily repair in most of our body’s cells.
