Is it safe to eat raw peanuts?

Answer

Anyone who does not have a peanut allergy may eat raw peanuts safely. The peanuts should be inspected before they are eaten, according to the San Francisco Gate.

When inspecting raw unshelled peanuts, the shells should be clean and unbroken and should not procure a rattling sound when shaken. The San Francisco Gate points out that peanuts with an unusual odor should be avoided. Raw peanuts have a shorter shelf life than peanuts that have been shelled and processed. Peanuts have large amounts of certain vitamins and minerals including niacin, folate and vitamin E. They have negligible amounts of sodium and cholesterol and provide a favorable ratio of protein to carbohydrates.
