They believed that about 10% peanut allergy people in foreign countries can overcome the symptoms through continuous intake of peanut kernel.
At the same time, peanut as raw materials for processing is gradually tend to specialization due to the rapid growth of processing technology like peanut oil press, peanut protein processing, leisure peanut processing and waste comprehensive utilization process technology in recent years, which make the peanut industry practitioners understand that not only kernel is useable but also all parts of peanut is precious.
Research found that peanut shell and peanut stem has many functions, it not only can be processed as feeding, fertilizer and culture medium for edible fungi, but also can be used to extract dietary fiber, brewing liquor and soy sauce, processing adult artificial plate and activated carbon. While the peanut skin can be excellent natural pigment in the food industry through rational utilization, it can be used as coagulant in the medical industry and play a role in beauty, skin care and hair care of cosmetics industry. Therefore, the whole peanut body is treasures, which has big development value for comprehensive utilization.
