The U.S. produces between 3 and 4 billion pounds of peanuts annually, and about 40 percent of these go into processed foods, from salted peanuts, candy, crackers, and cookies to peanut butter. They're a major source of vegetable oil too. U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists have worked to improve peanut flavor and quality both by breeding better peanuts and by finding better ways to process them. With the help of precision lab instruments and the sensitive noses of volunteers, USDA ARS chemists have pinpointed chemicals that are crucial to that unmistakable peanutty flavor. This work reveals that roasted peanuts probably owe their rich, nutty aroma to a blend of about a dozen natural compounds. The findings could be used to enrich the flavor of roasted peanuts by adding back compounds that are sometimes lost in processing. USDA photo by Scott Bauer.
