Think they’re just a sidekick to chocolate? Hazelnuts resent the implication! Apart from their fine crunch and taste, they’re a nutritional goldmine. They’re high in vitamin E for skin health, copper for iron absorption, and manganese for bone health. They’re a good source of magnesium and brain-boosting flavonoids. They contain more folate, a B vitamin that fights heart disease and depression, than any other tree nut. Protein, fiber and unsaturated fat make them a satisfying, heart-healthy snack.
Our raw, organic sprouted hazelnuts have an intense, bittersweet, almost buttery flavor. They are a lovely addition to baked or raw treats, salads, ice cream, vegetable dishes, and pasta. If you’re really feeling creative, try blending them into pesto or pie crust… or (okay, fine) cover them in chocolate.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful nut. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! In the Blue Ridge Mountains, people have long gathered wild hazelnuts from the forest and prized them for their taste. Two of the most popular uses: drop them into kids’ stockings as a treat or enjoy them as a toothsome complement to foraged morels.
