Yes, you heard it right. Those peanuts lying in your snack box could be used to produce dynamite.
Dynamite contains a compound called nitroglycerine, an extremely unstable explosive that could detonate at the slightest jolt. This in turn, is obtained from a substance called glycerol. The rich oil that peanuts contain is extracted and used to make glycerol. As long as it has not undergone the nitration process, glycerol is a safe liquid. In fact, it is also used in the manufacture of soaps, cream, and certain food products. Peanut, in its natural form, continues to be a healthy food. So go ahead, try these delicious peanut-based recipes at home.
