Here at L’Orenta, we believe the peanut is a prestigious goody that has earned a harshly judged reputation. A truly healthy snack in reality, the peanut’s place in the home has long since been disputed. Rest assured, we only use the finest quality ingredients to craft premium peanut mixes that will set your taste buds to tingling!
The options are endless
Peanuts present so many flavor combinations that we barely know where to start. Technically a legume rather than a nut, the peanut grows below ground in calcium rich soil – and that should give you a clue as to some of the health benefits found in our Roasted Redskin Peanuts. The red skins of these baked beauties are known to boost antioxidant levels in your system, so here at L’Orenta we toast them until the skins flake off in the mouth, providing a counterbalance in texture to the crunch of the nut beneath.
While both our Southern Sweet Mix and our Summer Sunrise Mix include peanuts in their natural form – each flavor combination lifts their eloquence in a different way. The Summer Sunrise will add the refreshing fruitiness of sun-drenched raisins, while the Southern Sweet Mix will boost your potassium levels with its hint of sweetened banana (and toffee to boot).
If sweet is more your style, then we have something especially for you. We take chocolate covered peanuts to the next level by providing Double Dipped Peanuts cast in the most pristine, silken chocolate you could ever dream of.
Alternatively, the delicacy of French Burnt Peanuts is a unique experience that must be tried by everyone. There are so many things you can do with this versatile little nut; but they’re not just tasty, they’re a smart snack choice too!
Snack Food that’s Good Food!
Let’s take a look at some peanuts nutrition facts to answer the famous questions, “are peanuts good for you?”
- Peanuts contain 25% protein per 100g – that’s a quarter of the average adults daily intake.
- They are high in natural dietary fiber, Omega 6 and both Mono and Polyunsaturated healthy fats.
- They are a naturally low sugar, low sodium snack that will help your body maintain optimum functioning while tasting fantastic in the process.

Peanuts Fun Facts
It takes roughly 540 crushed up and toasted peanuts to make up your average jar of peanut butter. That’s approximately 200 individual peanuts that need to be shelled, skinned, and baked. Luckily for farmers, modern technology makes that process much easier than it used to be!
