According to the National Peanut Board, in 2021, peanut consumption increased to 7.9 pounds per capita. To know how this legume has gained this recognition over the years, let’s look at its history. 

History of Peanuts 

The first evidence of the cultivation of Peanuts was almost 8,000 years ago in Peru. Peanuts were portrayed in art and were on sale when the conquistadors got to Tenochtitlan. From there, peanuts circulate globally through traders from Europe. And today, peanuts are grown in every place that meets the climate’s requirements. 

Peanuts have over thirty vitamins and nutrients with richer antioxidants than green tea, carrots, and broccoli. As a result, peanuts have cemented their place in several cuisines worldwide, including appetizers, desserts, snacks, and even main courses. 

For example, in South America, people drop peanuts in a bottle of coke. And that’s because the flavor becomes richer as it is a perfect mix of fizzy, sweet, crunchy, and salty.
