Walnuts contain important phytochemicals, which can help prevent chronic diseases. They also contain high amounts of polyunsaturated fats, which are are potentially beneficial for both brain health and function. Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, specifically alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Studies have shown that eating walnuts can help lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in particular (often referred to as “bad” cholesterol), but also lower your cholesterol overall. As nutritious as So Natural walnuts are, you don’t need more than 7-10 per day as part of a healthy balanced diet.

Serving Suggestions:
Walnuts are delicious raw, but can also be toasted in a pan to bring out more of their flavour. If you’re roasting a larger quantity, place the nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake on a medium heat for 10-12 mins. They are ready when the kernels turn golden brown. Mix your roasted walnuts into your rice pilaf and any green or quinoa salad. Because they’re mild, they’re also versatile, so try pairing them with sweet and savoury dishes.

Walnuts should be kept in an airtight container and stored in a cool, dry place. If stored in the refrigerator, walnuts will stay fresh for up to three months. Walnuts stored in the freezer can last for up to one year.
