Hazelnuts are known as a very nutritious nut and contain many health benefits. Hazelnuts are a source of the essential unsaturated fatty acid - Linoleic acid, the "good fat", which makes them a great energy booster. All nuts contribute fibre to the diet and hazelnuts contain a moderate amount. Eating foods rich in fibre helps to satisfy hunger for longer. Dietary fibre can help manage cholesterol and is essential for a healthy bowel function.
Hazelnuts are one of the best food-source of Vitamin E, supplying over 20mg per 100 gram portion. They are also one of the best nut sources of manganese which is the subject of research into nerve nourishment & the maintenance of sex-hormone production.
They also contain significant amounts of B group vitamins including folates and Vitamin B6.
Organic Hazelnuts have a significant place among the types of dried nuts in terms of nutrition and health because of the special composition of fats (primarily oleic acid), protein, carbohydrates, vitamins (vitamin E), minerals, dietary fibers, phytosterol (beta-sitosterol) and antioxidant phenolics such as flavan-3-ols.
