About Nuts: What You Should Know



At John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. (JBSS), parent company of the Fisher® brand, we pride ourselves on knowing everything there is to know about nuts. For example, did you know that peanuts are not actually nuts at all? They are legumes. In the U.S., the average annual consumption of peanuts tops 1.3 million in-shell tons, with over 50% of that quantity going into the production of peanut butter.
