You Ask, I Answer: Salted Peanuts

planters coctail peanutsWhat’s your opinion regarding salted vs non-salted peanuts? I personally prefer the non-salted type, but they’re hard to find.

When it comes to peanuts (and tree nuts, like almonds, cashews, and walnuts), salted versus unsalted is really a moot point.

Whereas unsalted varieties offer 0 milligrams of sodium per serving (shocking, I know), salted ones only offer 115 milligrams per one-ounce serving.

Let’s put that into perspective.  A hundred and fifteen milligrams of sodium is:

  • Slightly less than what you get in a slice of bread or a cup of cow’s milk
  • One third of the sodium content of an Au Bon Pain cinnamon scone
  • Less than half the sodium in one slice of a 12″ Domino’s cheese pizza
  • One fifth of the sodium in a Dunkin’ Donuts corn muffin.

So, then, why do salted peanuts taste so salty?  They are an example of foods that contain surface salt, which is more noticeable to the taste buds than the salt in sweet baked goods.

    I have noticed in perusing the (plain old peanuts) nut jar labels that many have sugar (in the form of dextrose, I think), or oils like cottonseed oil. What’s up with that? It took a lot of label reading to find peanuts that had simply peanuts and salt listed as ingredients
