Raw Peanuts
One Peanut. Two Names.

Pick up a peanut at random, and in all likelihood, it will be a Runner. Also known as Bold or raw peanuts, Runners are the most common variety in the world, and are grown especially intensively in the Western Hemisphere.

With many similar characteristics to the Virginia peanut, Runner peanuts are used in bulk processing, such as oil crushing, roasting, and blanching.

There are many subspecies to explore, with cropping cycles varying from 120 to 160 days, and they even come in a High Oleic type, which boasts a 30-40% higher monounsaturated fat content.

With a high yield and high demand, large mechanised farming regions have long favoured the Runner. Thanks to their nutty flavour, high protein content, and jumbo size, Runner’s a popular raw peanut snack in the EU, a dominant peanut butter ingredient in the US, and a key source of oil across Asian markets. Manufacturers can even make use of split peanuts for birds, processing them into sustainable and nutritious birdfeed.

Bold peanuts come in several subspecies, including

● G20 
● G10 
● Luhua 
● Haihua 
● Florunner 
● Georgia Runner 
● High Oleic

Runner peanuts with a high oleic ratio are heart-friendly and typically have a 50% longer shelf life than normal peanuts.

Perennial supply

Comprising over 60% of global peanut production, the Runner raw peanut variety is available throughout the year. That means you can get whole peanuts or split peanuts for birds whenever you need them.

High yield

Bold peanuts deliver a higher yield than many other varieties, both when harvested and when processed further.

Published on 24/06/2024 in Peanut News

It shocks me how many brands of peanut butter put sugar and palm oil in their product even the premium ones! Palm in in peanut butter should be avoided at all costs, it's highly processed, terrible for your healthy, and bad for the environment. It's not bad enough that we already eat way too much sugar in out diets, but to put sugar in peanut butter is completely unnecessary, yet so many brands do
