Benefits: Hazelnuts had been considered too fatty to be a healthy snack, but research has shown that the nuts actually lower blood cholesterol levels. 90 percent of the fats in almonds are unsaturated, and the nuts are high in protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, and other antioxidants. Almonds help prevent osteoporosis and they regulate blood pressure.
Suggested Use: Hazelnuts are great as a convenient, healthy snack and a timeless family favorite. They are also good for dried fruit and nut mixes.
