Blanched peanuts are a primary ingredient in a vast number of confectioneries consumed worldwide. The blanching process typically uses Runner, Virginia, or Spanish peanuts, and removes 80% of aflatoxin, making blanched peanuts safer to consume than raw, skin-on peanuts.
At Agrocrops, our blanched peanuts come in highly customisable specifications, from uncooked peanuts dry-blanched at 80°C to peanuts fully roasted at 180°C. Our air-blanching system ensures zero scorching and avoids the use of mechanical skin removal, resulting in a lower peanut meal and a fine finish. Similarly, our roasted peanuts are produced using precision roasters with multiple heat zones, ensuring that the peanuts are unaffected at the molecular level. We use Hunter L*a*b scale colour specifications to correctly match the finished product.
Uncooked blanched peanuts are typically used for making boiled snacks, peanut soups, or as an initial stage before further roasting processes.
Blanched and roasted peanuts are made from the following types of peanuts
● Standard Runner/Bold
● High Oleic Runner/Bold
● TJ 37
● Western 44
