Our walnuts halves have a delicious rich taste, are moist yet crunchy with an excellent nutritional profile.
Walnuts are a tree nut and are a rich source of heart-healthy 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. Our Chilean walnut halves have a slightly less bitter taste than our organic walnuts which some people find more pleasant, while still getting all the beneficial nutrients present in the skin.
As well as being rich in antioxidants, walnuts are also a very 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. This gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E has been claimed to provide significant protection from heart problems. The antioxidant and anti inflammatory makeup of walnuts has also been claimed to help treat those with type 2 diabetes, help weight loss and prevent obesity, improve bone health and reduce problems in metabolic syndrome as well as providing many anti cancer benefits.
Like most nuts, walnuts can be easily added to your diet. Chop and add to your favourite salad or yoghurt. Make your own granola or porridge topping with our goji berries and chia. Mix with our other nuts, dried fruits and seeds in homemade snack mixes. Alternatively just open the bag and snack!
