Protein helps keep you satisfied. And peanuts—which are not actually nuts But, like peas and beans, are legumes—have seven grams of protein per one–ounce serving. Peanuts are a good source of dietary fiber, which can help keep you feeling full longer and can aid digestion. Not too many snacks contain fiber! Niacin is a B vitamin that the body uses to convert food into energy. A one–ounce serving of peanuts delivers about 15% of the niacin you need each day. A one–ounce serving of peanuts delivers a good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps you protect cells from damage. “Good” fats experts recommend limiting the intake of foods high in saturated fat and replacing them with foods high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated–“good”—fats. And 80% of the fat in peanuts is composed of these “good” fats.
