About Walnuts Organic

Whole walnuts are green as they grow and then ripen to a pale yellow. Once fully ripened, they fall from the walnut tree. They’re harvested from the ground, where the outer husk is first removed, leaving a hard shell. That hard outer shell is removed, or shelled, to reveal the nut meat inside. Walnuts are filled with healthy fats (polyunsaturated fats) and vitamins. It’s a good source of Antioxidants; have more antioxidants than any other common nut and are especially high in vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids.

Walnuts can be used a variety of ways in the kitchen—the whole fruit (inside the walnut husk) can be pickled when young (“green”, “wet”) and shelled walnuts can be eaten raw, toasted, or even candied. In recipes, walnuts are used as an ingredient in many kinds of dishes, often to add a crunchy texture to soft or liquid foods.

Other interesting information

The ancient Greeks noticed the similarity of the kernel with the human brain and healers have considered them to be a “brain food.” They prescribed walnuts for headache and for soothing sensitive heart. Modern medicine has discovered a number of evidence to support this hypothesis.

Walnuts contain healthy essential oils, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber, which makes them a true super food. The high levels of fatty acids, omega 3 and omega 6, in Walnuts help to improve memory and cognitive function of the brain and they also help to prevent depression. Their high content of 16 phenol antioxidants, vitamin E, and ellagic and gallic acids, protein and fiber make walnuts anti-inflammatory and they support immunity and have anticarcinogenic properties. Walnuts are able to regulate sleep with the help of melatonin, which is contained in these nuts, in a bioavailable form. Walnuts are an excellent source of biotin or vitamin B7, which is considered good for the hair and nails and helps them grow stronger and healthier.

Local
There is minimal commercial production of walnuts in the Netherlands, of which most is exported. So, we needed to look abroad for other sources. China, US and Argentina are increasingly suppliers of EU walnuts, but these options aren’t as sustainable, so we selected a supplier who sources from Ukraine. Ukraine is one of the largest producers of organic walnuts.
