Walnuts have the highest levels of omega 3 fatty acids (linoleic acids) of any nut and are a good source of minerals and vitamins, in particular vitamin E, A, the B vitamins, zinc, potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium [1 and 2].
It is a well-known fact that nature develops its full potential in wild growing nuts in particular and that they can provide optimal supplies of nutrients to the human body.
Research has shown that the vital substances contained in walnuts reduce blood cholesterol levels, stabilise blood sugar values, strengthen the vessels, lower the risk of contracting stomach or prostate cancer and heart attacks, inhibit inflammatory reactions, strengthen the heart muscle and aid the liver. Walnuts are also said to positively influence type 2 diabetes, and to protect the body in stressful situations .
Walnuts are therefore an excellent choice for a balanced healthy diet and should be consumed daily.
Our wild organic Fairtrade walnut halves are very light throughout and very attractive, as they are carefully hand sorted. Their flavour is pleasantly nutty and strong, as found only in wild growing walnuts. The nuts are slightly crunchy in texture, just as they should be. The walnuts do not contain any shells, as they undergo several checks and are laser cleaned.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade walnuts exclusively from Uzbekistan. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo.
1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After being carefully harvested, the walnuts are cracked open and gently sun-dried. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
The walnuts are pressure treated and laser cleaned in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic walnuts are checked individually.
