New Delhi, June 1 (IANSlife) Peanut Butter is a thick spread made from grounded peanuts which are blended into a fine paste to get a smooth texture. It is the powerhouse of nutrients. Its health benefits are known by people far and wide. It is a preferred snack in the U.S.A. Peanut butter has been declared as a superfood because of the number of nutritional benefits it carries.

Talking of the health benefits, Chetan Kanani, Co-Founder of Alpino Health Foods, help us understand as to why peanut butter has unfailingly been the choice of all Indians for so many years now and break some existing prejudices.

* Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and therefore, is ideal for a person aiming to gain mass and muscle but only a small aggregate of people know that it also helps in losing weight. The fact that it contains trace amounts of calories per serving when backed up by the fact that peanut butter makes you feel satiated for a longer period makes one lose weight.

* Another prejudice that is heard quite often is that the fats in peanut butter will make you fat. But in fact, the fats in the peanut butter are mono-unsaturated fats that help in weight loss and shoot down the risk of obesity, thereby preventing heart diseases.

* Another prejudice that peanut butter contains a lot of sugar and oil, therefore, it has a lot of calories.
