California Walnuts have it all…

California Walnuts are a nutrition powerhouse with #bagsofpotential

Lovingly grown in the Californian sunshine by many multi-generational farmers who work hard to bring a high-quality nut, that’s light in colour with a mild and creamy taste, for you and your family to enjoy all year round.

There are countless ways to use walnuts to add flavour, crunch, and depth to every course, from savoury to sweet dishes, to snacking on a handful a day. If you need some inspiration head over to our recipe pages for our latest dishes.

Tasty, yes. Versatile yes. Healthy too… California Walnuts have it all

With their heart-healthy seal of approval from cholesterol charity Heart UK, walnuts are also the only tree nut to contain significant amounts of the plant-based essential omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (2.7g/30g), as well as 4.4g of protein and 1.4g of fibre per 30g handful.

And it doesn’t stop there… walnuts are a good source of (antioxidants) copper and vitamin E and micronutrients magnesium, vitamin B6, folate and thiamin (vitamin B1) and a source of (antioxidant) zinc, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and minerals iron and potassium.

Just remember when looking for your #bagsofpoential look for Produce of USA on pack – this is how you tell you walnuts are from California.

Top tip: to maintain the freshness of California walnuts, keep them cold so the best place to store them is in the fridge or freezer…
