Peanut flour contains 40-50% protein, is gluten-free and vegan, and has even been shown to have heart health benefits. Partially defatted peanut flour also works well as a fat binder in confectionery products or to add flavour and extend shelf life. It can also be used as a flour alternative in gluten-free breads and baked goods. Other ways to get creative with this unique ingredient include adding it to sauces and soups for texture and flavour, using it as a crumb topping for chicken and seafood, and even blending it into smoothies and shakes to increase the flavour and protein content.

Nutrient Dense

Peanut flour is a gluten-free and vegan alternative that can add powerful plant-protein and lots of nutrition. Because most of the fat is removed, it is highly concentrated protein and contains about 10 to 15g of protein per 30 g. It is also packed with essential nutrients and bioactives. One small scoop (2 tablepoons) is a good source of folate, zinc, and potassium and an excellent source of fibre, magnesium, phosphorus, and niacin .

Heart Healthy

Peanuts, peanut butter, and peanut oil are known for their heart health benefits, and peanut flour is no exception. In fact, one study showed that hamsters on a high cholesterol diet fed fat-free peanut flour had significantly decreased cholesterol and slowed development of atherosclerosis .

Peanuts contain more Arginine than any other food and peanut flour contains twice the amount than peanuts per serving. Arginine has been shown to play a role in opening up blood vessels to improve blood flow. Also, peanut flour is an excellent source of niacin, a vitamin often prescribed by doctors for its heart protective qualities, a good source of potassium and an excellent source of magnesium, which help to maintain normal blood pressure.
