Hat’s Off to the Hearty, Healthy Hazelnut!
A batch of hazelnuts in the shell looks like smooth pieces of wood. Within each shell is a true heart of gold. Before moving on to why these are so good for you, let’s focus a minute on their delectable flavors. First of all, the hazelnut tree is often used as an ornamental shrub, one which is abundant in its nut production. Hazelnuts are easy to crack. Each tender morsel has a sweet, buttery flavor, making it a perfect nut accompaniment to an array of snacks, mixes, and recipes.
For now, let’s get to the heart of the matter of why to buy hazelnuts! First, they’re a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to promote heart health. Plus, they aid digestive health, protect against inflammation, and are a good source of manganese, copper, and vitamin E. It’s also been suggested that they may help to balance blood sugar levels and potentially protect against cancer. As you go through our hazelnut selections you’ll note that we have those that are gluten, wheat, peanut, and dairy free.
Our great-great-grandfather brought his hazelnut roasting skills and recipes with him to this country early in the 20th century. He knew the hazelnut’s uses in Europe and its long history of being a deliciously adaptable food staple. This was one of several nuts that he roasted and sold when he founded L’Orenta in 1934. We use many of his recipes each week at our facility in San Antonio TX. From here we promptly ship your order so that it arrives fresh at your door. Each one and five pound package of hazelnuts and other gourmet nuts and goodies you buy online from us, is wrapped in our colorful, resealable bags. You’ll want to have plenty on hand as for people who love the hazelnut’s sweet, buttery taste.
