Our organic Sicilian hazelnut kernels are:
- 100% from Sicily
- 100% FAICON ROMAINE
- THE QUEEN OF HAZELNUTS
- very good quality
- Very high quality
- very antioxidant
- checked several times
vital substances: Hazelnuts contain vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, it protects our body from harmful oxidation, thus from free radicals and it stabilizes cell membranes. Furthermore, hazelnuts help to supply the body with vitamin B1, niacin, vitamin B6, biotin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese.1
In general, nuts have been shown to lower the cholesterol level in the blood due to their polyunsaturated fatty acids, stabilize the blood sugar level, support the blood vessels, reduce the risk of stomach and prostate cancer and heart attacks and inhibit inflammatory reactions.2
Hazelnuts contain a very high antioxidant capacity of 9645 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacit).
By consuming antioxidant-rich foods, the defense mechanism in the body can be strengthened and thus an overproduction of free radicals.3
Description: FAICON ROMAINE - THE QUEEN OF HAZELNUTS!
Our hazelnut kernels are very attractive and uniform nuts. They have a very intense taste and are extremely aromatic. The hazelnuts are not blanched and unroasted.
Origin: We obtain our organic hazelnut kernels exclusively from the Damiano company in Sicily. We have been working closely with the Damiano company for a long time and appreciate the very good quality of each other. The organic hazelnut kernels are grown directly on the island and have a very good taste and are of very good quality. They are carefully harvested by hand, cleaned and checked several times.
Harvest: The hazelnut kernels have a skin and a hard outer shell. The harvest takes place between September and October. Depending on demand, the hazelnuts are first dried and then cracked open if necessary, or cracked open immediately after harvesting and then harvested. This is done because the shelf life and the fresh and nutty taste are retained for longer in the whole nuts. A final inspection ensures quality and ensures a very high-quality end product.
Purity: In Austria, the hazelnuts are pressure treated and checked several times as standard. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.

Why you should germinate our nuts!
The germination of nuts:
inhibits and reduces phytic acids
Phytic acid occurs naturally in foods and inhibits the absorption of minerals in our body. A reduction in phytic acid therefore has the advantage that the minerals contained can be absorbed and are therefore available to us.4
- inhibits and reduces tannins
Tannins are tannins that the plant uses for its own protection. If too many tannins are ingested with food, flatulence (digestion problems) can occur and, above all, reduced absorption of iron and calcium (or minerals).5
- neutralizes enzyme inhibitors
Our body requires certain reactions to function properly, and these reactions in turn require certain enzymes. If these enzymes are inhibited, our body cannot work optimally. It is therefore important to reduce this inhibition to a minimum.
- promotes the production of beneficial enzymes and
- increases the amount of vitamins, especially the B vitamins
In the germination process, a new flowering of the plant is set in motion. Many important vital substances such as vitamins and enzymes are activated and mobilized. Therefore, sprouted nuts are a lot more valuable than ungrouted nuts.
Use: If you can get into the habit of putting your nuts in lukewarm water the night before and letting them sit overnight, you'll have very good pre-sprouted nuts the next morning. If you have sprouted more nuts than you need in the morning, we recommend storing them in the refrigerator without the water, or for a longer period of time, it is advisable to dry the nuts on a dry surface or in the oven.
General: Depending on the food, the germination time is 7 to 24 hours.Sources:
