Product Description

Walnuts are nutritional powerhouses.

Organic Walnut Pieces are a brilliant source of nutrition and a great cupboard staple for any health food fanatic.  Choosing pieces is an economical way to enjoy these tasty nuts, but we also sell organic walnut halves.

Walnuts are high in protein so make a good addition to vegetarian and vegan diets.  Some say that food that looks like a body part is beneficial for that body part and walnuts look similar to the human brain.   They are rich in omega fats and contain a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals.

In the nutrition stakes walnuts win the nut contest hands down.  If you don’t like the slightly bitter skins then buckle up, because this is where all their antioxidant power lies.

Walnuts are one of the oldest tree foods known to man and their use dates back to 7000 BC.  The ancient Greeks and Romans recorded the medicinal use of walnuts for a range of ailments.  Today we have the nutritional knowledge to show these nuts are a powerful health tool for any diet.

Storage

Walnuts have a very high oil content. Given the right conditions they will go mouldy. Keep walnuts in an airtight container in a cool dry place.

For optimum storage keep in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
