Peanuts can be removed from their shell and eaten raw. However, it is important for consumers to know that roasting it releases antioxidants and improves digestion.

There are also many people who use peanut butter or peanut paste. This is probably one of the most famous forms of this legume and one of the most used in some countries. It is perfect for sandwiches and cookies.

However, to avoid consuming too much sugar, it is best to buy it in its purest form; made entirely from peanuts and consume no more than 1.5 tablespoons a day.

Peanuts can be eaten raw, blanched, roasted, boiled, fried, powdered, or in peanut butter. Eating them with their thin, papery skin is more nutritionally beneficial, as the skin contains many antioxidants and phytochemicals.
