Today’s mass-produced snack foods put consumers at risk for all types of health issues, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and all of the complications that come with obesity. What’s really unfortunate is that nature already provides snack foods that won’t cause adverse human health conditions, but instead helps to cure them — and one of nature’s most beloved snack foods is the hazelnut.
Food to Live carries premium quality hazelnuts, in both organic and conventional versions.
Health benefits of hazelnuts / filberts
The hazelnut, or filbert, is one of the most delicious and nutritious morsels offered by nature. They are an extremely versatile nut that contains significant amounts of fiber, manganese, phosphorus, vitamins B1, B2, C, and E, folate, copper, and iron, and are low in cholesterol and sodium.
How to enjoy hazelnuts / filberts from Food to Live
Hazelnuts can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways, and they make an excellent substitute for sugary snack foods when eaten raw and plain. They can also be ground to a fine powder and used to make hot drinks, used in the breading of pan-fried chicken and fish, and roasted and baked into bread, muffins and cakes.
Substituting hazelnuts and other natural snack foods for processed junk food is an excellent way to improve your overall health as well as to keep excess weight levels down. Food to Live sells raw, whole, unsalted hazelnuts without the shell, so you have both convenience and a lot of options for how you use them.
