Peanut butter is made from dry and roasted peanuts and is eaten as a paste or spread in many cultures. It is absolutely safe to eat it unless you’re allergic to peanuts and its products. Peanut butter is loaded with a ton of vital nutrients like dietary fiber, vitamin E, vitamin B5 and B6, and niacin. It is also packed with minerals like manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and copper, and is a moderate source of thiamin, iron, and potassium. All these nutrients have several benefits such as increased metabolism and enhanced immunity in the mother and prevention of birth defects and development of bones, skin, and brain in the baby. The ingredients present in peanut butter even prevent miscarriages, stillbirths, and premature births! So, you may want to add this low maintenance, yet highly beneficial food, in your pregancy diet.
