I just bought this Chinese book on fruits and vegetables, and boy, it's chock full of information.
Peanuts is nicknamed as "Long-Life Fruit" because it is highly nutritious. It contains fat, protein, phosphorus, calcium, iron, vitamin A and B.
Peanut is also considered to have anti-aging functions. It is indeed a nourishing yet inexpensive food.
From the book of "Cook Easy! Eat Healthy! Fruits and Vegetables.
Author To Siu Pang
The book is directly translated from Chinese, so, it's a little hard to read, but isn't this interesting?
I am assuming that they are talking about good old fresh peanuts, and not those beer nuts or any peanuts heavily sweeten with sugar and salt and oil.
