federal consumer attorney (Profeco) warned that the consumption of Japanese Peanuts Mafer brand is injurious to health.
The company has different lines of this product: salty, enchiladas, fried and, of course, Japanese; The latter are made with a coating mixture of wheat flour, starch, salt and soy.
However, the agency noted that Japanese mafar peanuts are among the worst on the market due to their excessive sodium content.
As indicated by the agency in 2021, these peanuts contain 436 milligrams of sodium per 100 grams of the product.
Profeco indicates that high salt consumption can trigger so-called “non-communicable diseases” (ENT), such as cardiovascular, pulmonary, respiratory and cerebrovascular diseases.
Likewise, diabetes and high blood pressure that comprise this type of disease are exacerbated by sodium intake.
The World Health Organization has reported that they are the cause of 41 million deaths worldwide.
According to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), 151 thousand 19 citizens lost their lives in Mexico in 2020 due to diabetes.
Because of this, mafar peanuts may be harmful to your health, as the WHO recommends a sodium intake of less than 5 grams of salt per day.
