Salted peanuts are a high-fat and moderate-protein snack with a relatively low carbohydrate content. Its impact on glucose levels is minimal due to its low glycemic index. The presence of fiber, protein and fats in peanuts can also result in slower digestion, leading to a gradual increase in glucose levels.

Tips for optimizing salted peanut intake
• Salted peanuts are high in sodium. But they can be included in a balanced meal or as a snack in small proportions.
• Salted peanuts and simple carbs such as 30 g green bananas or elaichi bananas can be a delicious and nutritious snack option. The fiber, protein and fats in peanuts can help slow down the absorption of carbs in the banana, leading to a more gradual rise in glucose levels.

Salted peanuts are a good source of protein, and they are high in healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. They range low on the glycemic index. So, when you eat salted peanuts, they can show a glucose flatline or hypoglycemia (if your glucose is already low). It’s important to keep in mind that salted peanuts can also be high in sodium, so it’s best to enjoy them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
