POWER UP

with Plant Pro­tein

Escalon Times - - NEWS -

When it comes to get­ting en­ergy from the food you eat, it’s no se­cret that pro­tein packs a pow­er­ful punch. How­ever, re­search shows cer­tain plantbased pro­teins, like peanuts, may carry ad­di­tional ben­e­fits. Ac­cord­ing to a Har­vard School of Public Health study pub­lished in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Epi­demi­ol­ogy, sub­sti­tut­ing plant-based pro­teins like peanuts for animal pro­teins and low-qual­ity car­bo­hy­drates can re­sult in low­er­ing di­a­betes risk by 7-21 per­cent. Be­cause peanuts are known as a low glycemic in­dex food due to their slow di­ges­tion that causes sugar to grad­u­ally be re­leased into the blood­stream, they can have pos­i­tive ef­fects on blood sugar con­trol.
