Lightly Salted

Jim Greene May 1, 2001 01:02 PM

Planters dry-roasted peanuts come in 3 flavors: unsalted, lightly salted, and salted. The salted has a ton of other junk (spices) added, and even the lightly salted has maltodextrin, cornstarch, and sorn syrup solids added. Why? Will the salt not cling to the nuts otherwise? I don't want all that junk, so I end up buying the unsalted one and salting them myself.
