It’s easy to add the delicious flavor and nutritional value of peanuts to any protein shake or smoothie—without the fat. Our delicious Byrd Mill Peanut Flour adds enough protein to this breakfast and snack to keep hunger at bay. Ounce per ounce, Byrd Mill Peanut Flours pack a powerful protein punch of anywhere from 10 – 14 grams.
Peanut Flour adds a lot of other beneficial nutrients too. According to the National Peanut Board, peanuts contain “30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients like protein, B vitamins, vitamin E and magnesium. Peanuts are a plant-based source of protein and have more antioxidants than broccoli, carrots or green tea!” With all this information, it’s no surprise that both National Peanut Month and National Nutrition Month are celebrated in March.
