Pip & Nut: What are hi-oleic peanuts?

Hi-oleic peanuts are a special variety of peanuts that are only grown in a few places around the world; we source ours from Argentina. We use these peanuts not only because they are naturally sweeter and more delicious than standard peanuts, but they actually also contain higher levels of mono-unsaturated fats (the ‘good’ kind of fat, which helps support normal cholesterol levels). In fact, hi-oleic peanuts contain around 30% more monounsaturated fats than regular peanuts, which puts them up there with other heart-healthy foods like avocados and olive oil.
All of our peanut butters and peanut butter blends are made using these hi-oleic peanuts. We gently roast them to bring out their wonderful naturally sweet flavour.
