Product Information

There is no question that walnuts are a nutritive food – higher in healthy omega 3 essential fats that any other nut, these gnarly looking tree nuts confer a long list of health-supporting credentials.

Plant based omega 3 fats are called alpha-linolenic acid or ALA - a small handful of walnuts daily is a convenient (and delicious) way to support your omega 3 intake.

Vitamin E fabled for its skin loving properties can be found in walnuts, and in particular in the paper-thin skin, plant compounds known as polyphenols. Both nutrients have antioxidant properties and are invaluable in preventing oxidative damage of LDL (that’s the not so good kind) cholesterol – it’s this attribute that makes walnuts a good choice for those looking to support heart health.

Magnesium and amino acid arginine can also be added to the nutritional profile of walnuts. There is also defence for walnuts being helpful in managing appetite, largely down to the healthy serving of fibre and healthy fats found in the nut, which satiate hunger.

Walnuts are a versatile accompaniment to myriad dishes – add to bread mixes, cakes, roasted and scattered over creamy blue cheese and pasta, they also make a tasty snack or addition to smoothies.

Why not try something different? Using Walnut Halves have a go at creating this simple yet flavoursome recipe.
