Description: Our pine nuts are the "QUEEN" of the pine varieties, easily recognizable by their elegant and slim shape. A truly unique pleasure.
Pine nuts are also characterized by a high vitamin E content . Not only does this have a beneficial effect on our diet, the pine nuts themselves also benefit from it. The pine nuts contain polyunsaturated fatty acids and these oxidize very easily with oxygen. These oxidation processes are prevented by vitamin E. In addition, vitamin E protects the cells from attack by free radicals. The pine nuts are very protein-rich nuts.2 Furthermore, pine nuts help supply the body with vitamin B1, vitamin K, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese, iron and zinc.1
Origin: We source our organic pine nuts exclusively from the Damiano company in Sicily. We have been working closely with Damiano for a long time and we appreciate each other's very good quality. The organic pine nuts grow under the southern Italian sun on the slopes of Mount Aetna - on nutritious volcanic soil. They are carefully harvested by hand, cleaned and checked several times.
Harvest: The collected cones are carefully and gently dismantled, which reveals the valuable pine nuts. Before these can be consumed, however, they have to be removed from a hard shell that completely surrounds them in a complex process. Then the fine skin that is still around the kernel is polished away. Finally, the kernels are carefully sorted, because not all kernels are so beautifully white to beige. A final inspection ensures the quality and ensures a very high quality end product.
