Hazelnuts are a staple of many national cuisines across the world. Premium hazelnuts are an attractive shade of brown, with a crunchy texture and delicious taste. They grow on small trees, around 20-40 feet in height. The nut appears protected by a leafy capsule with a hard outer shell that conceals the tasty hazelnut.
Our raw, organic hazelnuts are manually harvested from the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily by farmers that we know personally, flourishing alongside our delicious Sicilian almonds. We choose the largest, finest nuts to ensure that everyone is of an impressive size, with perfect flavour every time.
Hazelnuts are a great source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamins A and E and minerals like magnesium and iron. Vitamin E has been shown to help maintain balance between antioxidants and free radicals in the body, and the suite of other vitamins and nutrients in hazelnuts are essential for healthy body functioning.
They’re perfect as a snack or as an ingredient of many sweet and salty dishes. Hazelnuts can add a lot of complex flavour to many different desserts, especially when chopped or grated. Our hazelnut kernels taste great as a nutritious snack. However, the kernels can be used in many ways, including being chopped or grated for baking purposes.
