To avoid aflatoxins - get these
If you can eat peanuts - it's important to only buy the safest types. As most peanuts and peanut butter (according to several health related websites and well regarded authors) unfortunately contain aflatoxins. Usually because they are harvested in wet or moist environments - which allows this dangerous fungi to form. Whether you can see it or not, aflatoxin can disrupt good health. It can even cause cancer (according to the NIH - National Cancer Institute). So then, it was nice to find that these particular peanuts (no specific variety mentioned by OMFoods) do come from Mexico. ie. where it's hot and dry. So the chances of aflatoxin are greatly reduced, if not eliminated (especially if you keep them in the fridge once opened). You can also look for Valencia peanuts, as those are usually grown in Mexico or Texas too.
