Dear Rae
Peanuts contain 49% fat so they have a very high energy content. How you react to peanuts in terms of heartburn is an individual reaction. Some individuals may develop heartburn from peanuts and other people won't. If you find that you do react with heartburn to peanuts then you need to avoid them in your diet.
