The classic monkey nut, loved by both humans and squirrels alike! These are the natural form of peanuts in their shell, which are gently oven-roasted giving the peanut a wonderful roasted flavour and crunch. With no added oils, salt or anything artificial they are as natural as can be and a great healthy protein-rich snack to nibble on. As well as containing one of the highest protein content of all nuts (peanuts are actually part of the legume family) their other great benefits are said to include memory improvement through niacin and a flavanoid called resveratrol. Recent studies have also shown that peanuts are as high in antioxidants as many fruits, which is important to the cardiovascular system. Other prominent vitamins and minerals found in these little legumes include manganese (roughly 84% of RDA), thiamin (roughly 53% of RDA), vitamin E (roughly 55% of RDA), magnesium (roughly 42% of RDA) and phosphorus (roughly 54% of RDA).
Many enjoy the wonderful roasted taste of these monkey nuts as a healthy popcorn alternative, shared between friends and as an energy boost whilst in the great outdoors. For some, the process of simply shelling them is enough reason for grabbing a bag! Why not also try making your own homemade peanut butter, satay sauce or adding to your favourite curries. Peanut soup is also a popular winter warmer. Comes in a resealable foil-lined pouch for added freshness and easy storage, also making them great for sharing.
