Peanut butter provides protection against cardiovascular disease due to high levels of monounsaturated fats and Resveratrol, an excellent source of protein, and vitamins B3 and E. Peanuts also contain magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, arginine and high levels of an antioxidant called p-coumaric acid.
Peanut butter, also known as peanut paste, is a food paste made primarily from ground roasted peanuts. There are many claims about the origin of peanut butter. Africans ground peanuts into stews as early as the 15th century. The Chinese have crushed peanuts into creamy sauces for centuries. Civil War soldiers dined on 'peanut porridge.' These uses, however, bore little resemblance to peanut butter as it is known today. In 1890, an unknown St. Louis physician supposedly encouraged the owner of a food products company, George A. Bayle Jr., to process and package ground peanut paste as a nutritious protein substitute for people with poor teeth who couldn't chew meat. The physician apparently had experimented by grinding peanuts in his hand-cranked meat grinder. Bayle mechanized the process and began selling peanut butter out of barrels for about 6 cents per pound.
