What's so special about our pine nuts?
Organic and wild grown
Siberian pine nuts are organic and wild grown (unlike some other pine nuts that are often grown in plantations). Cedar trees grow very slowly and reach ages of up to 1,000 years old, some even more. Pine tree cones take about 15 months to mature.
All nuts are harvested by hand.
They are just full of goodness
Reduction of the risk of heart disease
Studies show that eating nuts about five times a week can help lower the risk of heart disease. Pine nuts are high in beneficial monounsaturated fats, magnesium and vitamin E, which work together to protect the heart. Pine nuts also naturally contain plant sterols, a compound that can help lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. Eating pine nuts is associated with lower waist circumference, body mass index and blood pressure.
High in antioxidants
Siberian pine nuts contain about 9.33 mg of vitamin E per 100 g. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, required to protect our cells (cell membrane) from oxygen free radicals that damage human cells and weaken our body’s resistance to infections. Siberian pine nuts are also an excellent source of the B-complex group of vitamins, such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6 and folates. These vitamins help enzymes in human cells that are responsible for cellular metabolism, a process of getting energy from nutritionals and constructing new cell components.
Siberian pine nuts contain healthy amounts of essential minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. For instance, manganese (pine nuts contain about 8.1 mg of manganese per 100 g) helps our body to develop resistance against infections and viruses.
Wards off cognitive decline
All nuts are part of the MIND Diet, a well-researched dietary pattern that can help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by up to 35%. The MIND Diet recommends enjoying nuts at least five times a week.
Rich with the right kind of calories
A 1/4 cup of pine nuts, about 330 kernels, contains approximately 380 calories. But these are hardly empty calories. Nuts are packed with healthy fats, fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. In addition to being more nutritious, nuts are also more filling than other snack foods -- and that may lead you to take in fewer calories in the long run.
