ROASTED FRESH EVERY DAY
The fresh shell peanut has been a well-known Maastricht delicacy from Blanche Dael for years. Traditional cafes in Maastricht give fresh peanuts with a beer. I think we can say that Blanche Dael is the epicentre of the freshly roasted peanut in Northwest Europe.
Peanuts are rich in healthy fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals that help the body with many processes. In addition, there are antioxidants and tryptophan in peanuts. Tryptophan is a vital amino acid that is used for the production of serotonin. And this, in turn, is important for your brain; when your body produces too little of this, your mood can become unbalanced. And we can use a good attitude in these times. In recent years, peanuts have also been added to the "five-slice diet" and are considered a healthy snack. But as with any healthy delicacy, the rule is: enjoy in moderation and do not overeat.
The peanut (Arachis hypogaea), also called groundnut, groundnut, oil nut or monkey nut, is, despite all these names, botanically speaking, not a nut, but a legume containing two or three seeds. Like potatoes, the nuts (legumes) grow underground on the roots of the plant. The peanut plant is an annual plant that originated in South America and was distributed throughout the world in tropical and subtropical areas by the Spaniards in the 16th century. The largest producers are China, Israel, the United States, Egypt, Argentina and South Africa. Blanche Dael buys only the best quality raw peanuts and ensures their optimal processing of freshly roasted peanuts.
