Heart Healthy Recipes with California Walnuts

As the only tree nut to contain a significant amount of the plant-based omega-3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), 2.7g/ 30g and 1.4g of fibre[1], California Walnuts are the heart healthy nut*.

Perfect for enjoying on their own, their mild and creamy flavour means they can also be used to add extra taste and texture to a variety of dishes.
