Our organic walnuts 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 monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Unlike many walnuts our organic 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. The flaky, waxy skin can be slightly bitter to taste which is why many recipes call for this to be removed. It is recommended eating with the skin for maximum walnut goodness.
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.
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!
