Vital substances: Of all nut varieties, walnuts have the highest content of omega 3 fatty acids (linoleic acids) and are a good source of minerals and vitamins. They especially contain vitamins E, A, the B vitamins, zinc, potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium.1,2
It is generally known that wild nuts in particular contain the full power of nature and can thus contribute even more to optimally supplying the body with vital substances.
The vital substances contained in walnuts have been shown to lower the cholesterol level in the blood, stabilize the blood sugar level, support the blood vessels, reduce the risk of stomach and prostate cancer and heart attacks, inhibit inflammatory reactions, strengthen the heart muscle and support the liver. Furthermore, walnuts are said to have a positive effect on type 2 diabetes and protect the body, especially in stress-related situations.1
For a balanced, healthy diet, walnuts are therefore ideally suited and should not be missing on the daily menu.
Walnuts contain an extremely high antioxidant capacity of 13541 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).
By consuming foods rich in antioxidants, the body's defense mechanism can be strengthened and an overproduction of free radicals can be balanced out. An ORAC daily requirement between 5000 and 7000 is recommended.4
Description: Our wild organic Fairtrade walnut halves are consistently very light and very beautiful because they are carefully hand-sorted. The taste is very pleasantly nutty and intense, as only occurs with wild walnuts. The consistency of the nuts is slightly crunchy, just as they should be. The walnuts are of course shell-free, because they have been checked and laser-cleaned several times.
Origin: We source our organic Fairtrade walnuts exclusively from Uzbekistan. This is the only way we can be sure that the quality meets our high standards.
The walnuts grow on wild trees around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The around 1000 farmers who only cultivate the area during harvest time belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba, or Turob Bobo. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
Drying: After the careful harvest, the walnuts are cracked open and then gently dried with the help of the sun. The solar drying method used is very environmentally friendly and gentle on the product.
Purity: When they arrive in Austria, the walnuts are pressure treated and laser cleaned as standard. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. During the subsequent multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the walnuts are checked individually in order to rule out any foreign contamination.
