Our Soaked & Dried Walnuts are USDA Certified Organic by ICS (International Certification Services). These Certified Organic Walnuts have been soaked as Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation suggests, and then dehydrated at low temperatures. Our Certified Organic Nuts are fresh, flavorful, crispy and delicious. We do our best to procure the highest quality nuts available. They are soaked and dried under controlled conditions with commercial equipment in a USDA inspected kitchen. We take extra measures, such as refrigeration and vapor barrier packaging to insure that you receive only the best. In July 2003, the FDA released a qualified health claim stating: "Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
