Dry-roasted peanuts (without salt) are a good source of healthy fats, protein and fibre. They also contain essential vitamins and minerals. Peanuts contain more protein than any nut (7g per serving) and have a low glycemic index (GI), meaning they don’t cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels.

However, if glucose levels are already low, consuming a high-fat meal containing a lot of peanuts may slow glucose absorption, leading to a flatline or out-of-range glucose reading and a low score on a blood glucose test.

Roast to perfection: The best way to optimise dry-roasted peanuts without salt for improved blood glucose management
• Combining peanuts with a small amount (30g) of simple carbohydrates like green banana or elaichi banana can keep blood glucose levels within a healthy range. Simple carbohydrates can provide a quick source of glucose, while peanuts can help slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream and provide longer-lasting energy.
• Try adding roasted peanuts to the salads. It will enrich them with protein, fibre and mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids. These components prevent sugar spikes and produce energy that lasts longer.

Dry-roasted peanuts without salt can be a healthy and nutritious addition to a balanced diet. They have been shown to provide several health benefits, including improved heart health, weight management, and blood sugar regulation. However, it’s important to consume them in moderation. Incorporating roasted peanuts into a well-rounded meal plan and being mindful of individual dietary needs can be enjoyed as a tasty and nutritious snack.
