When you receive a tin of Hubs home cooked Virginia peanuts, whether as a gift or as a treat for yourself, you open the door to our home. Many years ago, in the small Virginia crossroads village of Sedley, Dot Hubbard developed a unique way to cook the Virginia peanuts grown on her father’s farm. She diligently used only the finest peanuts from the local harvest. Today, Dot’s recipe for using only the best remains unchanged.

From our home to yours...we hope you will enjoy Hubs.
Step inside Dot's kitchen in Sedley for a tour of Hubbard Peanut Company and learn how Hubs were born.

Powerful Peanut Lessons  

Peanuts are powerhouses of energy. With 7 grams of protein per ounce, peanuts give you 12% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of protein in each serving.

Peanuts promote weight loss. Peanuts create energy and control blood sugar so that you exercise more efficiently. The high fiber content in peanuts helps make you feel full quicker, so you snack less and keep hunger at bay longer.

Peanuts are naturally cholesterol free. Studies show that 2-3 servings of peanuts daily help to lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol levels) 11-14% without lowering HDL (“good” cholesterol).

Studies have shown that eating peanuts is part of a healthy diet and may lower your risk of heart attack. Eating 2-3 ounces of peanuts daily may lower your risk of heart attacks and cardiovascular disease by as much as 21 %. Peanuts contain mostly unsaturated fats and non-detectable levels of transfats. A high ratio of unsaturated fats to saturated fats helps improve your cardiovascular health.

Peanuts help inhibit cancer growth. Phytosterol beta-sitosterol (SIT),found naturally in peanuts, has been shown to inhibit cancer growth. SIT may offer protection against colon, prostate, and breast cancer, all of which tend to occur more in Americans than in other populations.

Peanuts create quick energy that burns calories and builds muscle. As a low response food on the Glycemic Index, peanuts satiate feelings of hunger, give you bursts of energy and help control blood sugar levels.

Peanuts are little gold mines of nutrients. Peanuts have almost half of the 13 vitamins essential for normal growth and health and 35% of the essential minerals.
