Which Is Better… Roasted Peanuts Or Fried Peanuts???
i am very much found of peanuts… i like fried peanuts… i want to know the cholestrol content of fried peanuts as well as roasted peanuts…
I’m not able to find nutrition information on fried peanuts. Peanuts themselves do not contain cholesterol - 0 mg. The calorie content of roasted peanuts is approximately 160 calories per ounce with 14 grams of total fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein. Frying a food usually requires the addition of fat, so it’s fairly safe to say that roasted peanuts are the better choice from a nutritional standpoint.
All the best,
