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......

Answer

Hi Davinder,

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,
