They are very high in protein and other nutrients. Very healthful.

Peanuts are known to have high levels of alfatoxin and should be consumed in limited quantities.

Just doing a quick google seach provides very little information about this from legitimate health or news sources. There's a lot of hysteria from questionable sites.

The National Cancer Institute says: https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/...ces/aflatoxins

Quote:
You can reduce your aflatoxin exposure by buying only major commercial brands of nuts and nut butters and by discarding nuts that look moldy, discolored, or shriveled. To help minimize risk, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tests foods that may contain aflatoxins, such as peanuts and peanut butter. To date, no outbreak of human illness caused by aflatoxins has been reported in the United States, but such outbreaks have occurred in some developing countries.

The biggest problem with boiled peanuts would likely be the salt content.

A cup of shelled peanuts is about 1.4g of sodium.

They're high in fat, but good fats.

I am sure they will not hurt you but OMG, I think they are gross. Driving from CA to Wash Dc with my teen son many years ago we spent a night in Al.I think it was our first encounter with boiled peanuts. All we could think was, if this was what southern cooking tasted like we move back to Ca and let spoiled brat commute for the 7 years he was there. Thank God we later found many southern dishes we really enjoyed.

BTW: I don't think I would be concerned about the salt content, depending on where you got the peanuts or if you boiled them yourself they may not be hight in sodium.
