Hazelnuts

Good for you.

Hazelnuts are loaded with protective antioxidants and are one of the richest food sources of proanthocyanidins, which are effective in lowering LDL or “bad” cholesterol.

Each 100 gram serving of hazelnuts offers 15 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber, and an abundance of vitamins including: thiamine, vitamin B6, riboflavin, alpha-tocopherol, vitamin E, and essential minerals like magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus.

Despite their nutrient density, hazelnuts have the least fat, saturated fat, and carbohydrate content of any nut.

Good for the planet.

Hazelnut trees have extensive root systems that help build and increase organic soil matter and prevent soil erosion. Once a hazelnut tree's root system is large enough, usually after one to two years, it no longer needs irrigation.

In comparison, a mature almond tree requires regular irrigation as often as every two to four days. This may not seem like a lot, but almonds—along with pistachios—are the second largest users of agricultural water in the state of California.

Hazelnut trees can be grown in areas of the United States with abundant rainfall and groundwater, ensuring they don’t drain already stressed ecosystems. We believe that these tiny nuts have the power to change our planet - one sweet, buttery bite at a time.
