Food Allergies have recently been in the news because of the attention of the public to peanut allergies in children. The Mayo Clinic defines a true Food Allergy (not sensitivity) as an event involving your immune system. In the case of a true Food Allergy, your immune system mistakenly identifies a specific food or a part of that food as a harmful substance. Your Immune System triggers specific cells to produce immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to fight it’s supposed “enemy” food or part of the food. Hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of your throat, lips or tongue, or a tingling in your mouth are all signs of a Food Allergy.

In Taiwan, Peanuts are known as “changshengguo” which means longevity fruit.  Peanut sprouts contain 30 parts per million of Resveratrol  compared with 1 part per million of Resveratrol in red wine.    According to Dr. Timothy Sanders, Ph.D. at North Carolina State University, in an interview with HeartWise Journal in Australia,  “Peanuts contain Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a phytochemical that is produced by plants, normally in response to some stress situation whether it be environmental, or it could be microbiological, for example. Resveratrol is an antioxidant and we know that high antioxidant activity certainly leads to a decrease in heart disease and cancer and some other types of human diseases.”
