Peanuts are rich in nutrients, providing over 30 essential nutrients. Peanuts can be used in many ways. They are eaten raw and  used in recipes and also in medicines. Many recipes can be made with these peanuts like peanut butter, peanut candy, peanut butter cookies, and also used in making snack bars. Not only as nuts, peanut oil is also used in cooking.
