Our 5kg walnut pieces pack is offers a great saving over our individual 1kg or organic walnut pieces packs. They are of different origin, usually Indian, and noticeably darker than our USA or Chilean 1kg packs, however they offer the same excellent nutritional profile, but at a significantly lower cost. If you are looking for the highest quality in terms of lighter colour, and less bitterness, please choose our 1kg USA/Chilean varieties.

Walnuts are a tree nut and are a rich source of monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Unlike many walnuts, our walnuts come with the skin on as the skin has been found to contain 90% of the phenols including key phenolic acids, tannins, and flavonoids, which is why the skin has a somewhat bitter tase..

As well as being rich in antioxidants, walnuts are also a good source of manganese, copper, molybdenum and the B vitamin biotin. Many other minerals are provided by walnuts in valuable amounts. These minerals include calcium, chromium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, vanadium and zinc. Vitamin B6, while not especially concentrated in walnuts, may be more bioavailable in this food. In terms of phytonutrients, walnuts contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, including more than a dozen phenolic acids, numerous tannins (especially ellagitannins, including tellimagrandins), and a wide variety of flavonoids. The form of vitamin E found in walnuts is somewhat unusual, and particularly beneficial. Instead of having most of its vitamin E present in the alpha-tocopherol form, walnuts provide an unusually high level of vitamin E in the form of gamma-tocopherol.

Please note we also sell Walnut Halves
