According to an article published by Healthline, groundnuts are a great legume for the body because they contain many beneficial elements.
Peanuts also contain fibre, protein and fat. Because of peanut health concerns, people with type 2 diabetes are not advised to eat peanuts.
In this article, two arguments for limiting peanut consumption by diabetics will be presented. Some of them include:
1. The presence of omega-6 fatty acids
Peanuts contain higher amounts of omega-6 fatty acids than any other type of nut. Excess omega-6 fatty acids can cause inflammation, which research suggests worsens diabetes symptoms. The levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body must be balanced.
2. Sugar and salt are sometimes added to peanut products.
Salt and sugar may be added to many peanut products. If you have diabetes, sugar can be harmful because it can raise your blood sugar.
