Wild Jungle Peanut Butter Raw

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 16, 2013 at 1:34 AM

HI guys,

i found this neat product today that i had to pick up at the store, tastes like tahini sort of, has anyone had this before or had any experiences? im looking to see if anyone has found a good way to enjoy it, i found spreading it on a pink lady apple is great so far.

"Nutritional Benefits

Wild Jungle Peanuts contain over 40% oleic acid???an oil essential for heart health and smooth, beautiful skin. This oil content is similar to other nutritionally praised nuts, like almonds.

Second, our Wild Jungle Peanuts deliver a whopping 26% protein???this is more than virtually any other nut or seed, including flax or hemp.

Third, Wild Jungle Peanuts boast a wide array of amino acids, including ALL 8 essential ones. This makes them a great source for amino acids like methionine, which is hard to find in other plant foods.

And finally, they contain arachidonic acid, a beneficial fatty acid usually found only in meat."

These are just heirloom peanuts, and definitely not paleo. *Nothing to see here, move along ...*

Peanuts are a legume, so they're in the same family as beans.

Peanuts are legumes, and legumes are not paleo. I have no idea where "jungle peanuts" fit in. I guess I have to research.

For what it's worth, this site says the jungle peanuts aren't that different nutritionally from common peanuts:

The website may be questionable, be he does provide references which could be followed...
