The appearance of National Peanut Day is due to the mass distribution of this product. Watch many American TV shows or read Charles M. Schultz’s Peanuts comic and you’ll understand why it’s so popular.

Peanuts have been known to mankind for over 3500 years. It originally grew in South America. It would be wrong to call it a nut – it is a legume, which in its characteristics is closer to soybeans or lentils. Due to the fact that the fruits are dug out of the ground, the phrase “peanut” is used in relation to peanuts.

Peanuts are actively used in cooking. They make butter and flour from it, add it to pastries, sauces, and various snacks. It will be useful for people who are actively involved in sports – 100 grams of this nut contains 25 g of protein and 50 g of fat.
