Organic Walnuts Absolute Organic
Walnuts are the fruits of walnut trees and are grown all over the world. The two most well known varieties of walnuts are English walnuts and black walnuts. Walnuts have a thick outer shell and the nuts are plump, crisp and meaty. Walnuts are available year-round at most grocery stores and are most often sold shelled. Walnuts have a rich, distinctive flavor and are a source of dietary fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. A 1-oz. serving of walnuts, which is about 14 halves, has 185 calories.
Walnuts provide protein, which is essential for the growth and repair of all your body's tissues, cells and organs. A 1-oz. serving of walnuts has 4.32 g of protein. Men need 56 g of protein daily and women need 46 g, as recommended by the Institute of Medicine. Walnuts contain incomplete protein, meaning one or more essential amino acids are missing.
Walnuts are very high in fat, providing 18.5 g per 1-oz. serving. Walnuts are a very good source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that reduces inflammation and the risk of degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Walnuts also contain omega-6 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats.
