SATVIC FOODS’ HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE
Homemade peanut butter is a great way to avoid the chemicals and artificial ingredients of commercial peanut butter and still enjoy all the health benefits of the latter.
When buying commercial peanut butter, you will come across a long list of ingredients that are hard to pronounce, and ones we know are not good for our health.
Hydrogenated oils, sugars, and food colorings are some added ingredients in store-bought peanut butter that can adversely affect our health when consumed for a prolonged period.
However, that’s not the case if you use natural ingredients in your homemade peanut butter recipes. Opting for naturally produced homemade peanut butter saves you from consuming harmful components with nothing to offer but taste.

- Prevents Cancer: It may help prevent cancer. One of the most significant discoveries related to peanut butter nutrition is its ability to prevent certain cancers, especially the colon, breast, and prostate. Peanut butter contains beta-sitosterol, a substance known to control the formation and spread of cancerous cells in the body.
- Alternative to Sugar: Peanut butter has a naturally sweet and salty flavor. Hence, homemade peanut butter can be used instead of sugar to make healthy dishes such as peanut butter besan laddoos, peanut butter banana muffins, and baked foods.
- Improves Sleep: As an ideal midnight snack, homemade peanut butter can help improve sleep as it is rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which helps regulate the sleep hormones like serotonin and melatonin.
- Excellent Protein Source: As a rich, healthy protein source, you may add homemade peanut butter to a vegetarian diet for muscle building. It also contains other nutrients like vitamin B3, B6, magnesium, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, which help strengthen bones and promote muscle growth.
- Helps control Blood Sugar Levels: Peanuts help control fasting blood sugars and postprandial levels (after a meal). Another reason why peanut diets help control blood sugar is that they are rich in magnesium.
- Aids in weight loss: Although peanut's calories are high, the good news is some of the fat in peanuts is resistant to digestion and is not fully absorbed by the body. The fiber and protein content in peanuts promote feelings of satiety and may also result in higher resting energy expenditure, increasing overall calorie burn.
- May Lower the Risk of Gallstones: Undissolved cholesterol in the body accumulates inside the gallbladder, known as gallstones. Peanuts help control blood cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of developing gallstones.
- Boosts brain Health: Peanuts are high in vitamins E and B, called niacin, which has been shown to reduce the rate of cognitive decline in older adults. Although supplements are available, a high vitamin E intake through foods like peanuts benefits by reducing or delaying the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and Dementia.
- Improves Vision: When it comes to improving eye health, green leafy vegetables and peanuts go hand in hand. The zinc in peanuts helps your body produce vitamin A, promoting eye health. Also, the high amount of vitamin E in peanuts helps slow down age-related macular degeneration and cataract formation.
