Some food such as peanuts is difficultly digested. So, not all their nutrients are absorbed. But what if we process peanuts? The current study analyzed the amount of unabsorbed fat after consuming 76 grams of fat provided by complete peanut, peanut butter, or peanut oil. Feces were used to determine the amount of unabsorbed fat. Regarding complete peanut, 18 percent of their fat was not absorbed, while only 5 percent of peanut oil and peanut butter fat were not absorbed. This means a discrepancy of 91 calories between complete peanut and peanut oil. Note that you should eat relatively high amounts of complete peanuts (153 grams) to receive 76 grams of fat as done in this survey. It can be true for other kinds of food that are difficultly digested. The un-absorption effect is not known, but insignificant. It is adequate to be aware of this concept. In conclusion, less fat is absorbed from complete peanuts compared to peanut oil or butter. Therefore, it seems that processing food considerably affects the digestion and absorption level.
