HEALTH BENEFITS - Nutrition in a Nutshell

There are many health benefits to hazelnuts, but the most widely documented benefits are the benefits they provide for the circulatory system. They have no cholesterol, and are low in saturated fats but high in monounsaturated fats.

Hazelnuts are a whole food and contain many nutrients that can be beneficial in managing circulatory health, weight loss and onset of Type 2 Diabetes.

They contain significant amounts of B group vitamins including folate and Vitamin B6. Plus, they are the highest in fibre of all the nuts.

The best way to eat them is raw and you only need about 25-30 grams (about a handful) of these delicious nuts each day to obtain the maximum health benefits.
