Can people with high blood sugar eat peanuts? What are the functions and effects of peanuts

Peanut is a kind of contradictory food for diabetics. It has rich nutritional value and tastes crispy and delicious, but its high calories are unacceptable!

Peanuts contain a lot of heat, about 580 kilocalories per 100 grams of peanuts, while a 22 Liang white bread contains 221 kilocalories, that is to say, the heat of 22 Liang peanuts is equal to half a jin of bread;

However, this does not mean that diabetic patients can not eat peanuts. In fact, as long as the consumption is strictly controlled, it will not have a great impact on blood sugar, and the rich nutrients it contains are also very important for diabetic patients!

Peanut is rich in linoleic acid and lecithin, which can reduce the synthesis of cholesterol in vivo, promote the consumption and excretion of cholesterol, eliminate oxygen free radicals and peroxides, improve blood circulation, increase the elasticity of blood vessel wall, and prevent vascular endothelial damage, which has a positive effect on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular complications of diabetes mellitus!

In addition, to be specific, there are about 120 peanuts in 100g. According to the previous heat calculation, each peanut has nearly 5000 calories, and each 100g of Apple has about 50 kilocalories. That is to say, eating 10 peanuts is equivalent to eating one or two apples, so it's better for diabetics to eat peanuts!
