Nutritious nuts

Nutritious nuts

Crunchy and delicious, nuts are wonderful gifts from Mother Nature – full of health-promoting “good” fats, minerals, quality protein and vitamins.

Nutritious nuts

Enjoyed in moderation, they make a great addition to your diet. Yet, not all nuts are created equal, each having their own unique nutrition profile and health benefits. Celebrate these parcels of goodness and boost your vitality this Christmas with this guide on the valuable properties of nuts.

Peanuts 

Technically a legume, peanuts are packed with polyphenolic antioxidants including resveratrol, rivalling many fruits in antioxidant content. They hold the title “food for the brain”, thanks to an abundance of folate, a mineral essential for brain development.

Pecans 

Get your fill of plant phytosterols

from pecans. These compounds

support immunity and help lower cholesterol levels.

Pistachios

Abundant in B-complex vitamins, vitamin E, potassium and fibre, pistachios are a delicious way to help maintain hormone balance, and said to be good for those with problem periods. They’re also the only nut to contain a significant amount of the carotenoid lutein. 

Walnuts
