Walnut Tree Facts

Did you know that walnuts aren’t really nuts? Like many other plants classified as such (almonds, cashews, pistachios), walnuts are seeds of a drupe fruit. Some people even pickle these fruits while they are still green.

However, the real value of this quirky plant is the nutmeat that we know as walnut. It’s one of the healthiest and most delicious nuts that exist on the planet and Food To Live Walnuts would allow you to enjoy all their benefits.

The walnut tree originated from Central Asia, although there were quite a few of them growing in the Southern Europe as well. The seeds of this plant have been revered by our ancestors for millennia. It’s truly fascinating that historians and archeologists are finding proof that people have been eating walnuts for over 7000 years. Even at those ancient times, this food was associated with intelligence due to the shape of the kernel.

Today, scientists have managed to prove that eating walnuts regularly can boost not only brainpower but your wellbeing as a whole. They are rich in a variety of essential elements and offer such a great balance of calories-to-nutrients that you can eat them even when working.


Types of Walnuts

There are over 30 types of walnut trees cultivated today. The most popular of them is the English walnut, although technically, it’s more correct to call this species Persian walnut as it originated from India. North America is the place of origin for black and white walnuts, although they aren’t as popular and their commercial cultivation is limited.

Today walnut trees are grown almost everywhere as the plant isn’t particularly demanding. China is the leading producer of walnuts, although the US is quite close, with the majority of American walnuts coming from California.

Every type of walnut that we enjoy eating has very similar benefits. Some of them have a bit more of specific nutrients, but these differences are slim. The main features that set apart walnut species are subtle fluctuations in size, color, and flavor.

Walnut plants are reasonably easy to cultivate. The tree starts producing fruits after only about 4 years of growth and can stay alive for centuries. The fruits mature by the end of August when they crack and turn brown, exposing the hard shell of the kernel.

Walnuts have a great number of uses, although being a delicious food is definitely the leader among them. Different parts of the plant can be utilized as components in dyes, medicines (walnut oil), cosmetic products, and even as cleansing products. The latter application is restricted to crushed walnut shells that make an effective, non-abrasive, cleanser for large metal constructions.

Food To Live Walnuts are top-quality. All walnuts are sourced from trustworthy farmers. They don’t contain any added sugar, salt, or any other flavorings to ensure that you get to enjoy a pure, healthy, and delicious product.


Are Walnuts Good for You?

Yes, they surely are! Even the FDA agrees that walnuts are great and they’ve actually released a Qualified Health Claim to state such. Eating walnuts every day gives you a boost of energy and helps you meet the daily requirements of many essential vitamins and minerals. Doing this would also bring you quite a bit of joy because they are delicious and can enhance the flavor of many dishes.

In order to reap all the walnut benefits, you should eat the kernels with the skin still on. This tiny brownish layer of plant-tissue contains over 90% of walnut phenols. This means that removing it would reduce the antioxidant value of the nut greatly.

Luckily, the skin is fused so deeply into the kernel that removing it from it is almost impossible. You can peel it off while the walnut fruits are still green. At that time, the skin is thicker and whitish-yellow. However, once they mature, you can effectively peel off the skin only from toasted walnuts. 
 

​Health Benefits of Walnuts

There are over a dozen benefits of walnuts proved by various studies. The most important reasons to include them into your diet regularly are:
  • Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
    There is no measuring the value of omega 3 fatty acids for your health as they are important for too many processes to count. Their most vital role, however, is reducing the rate of inflammatory reactions. Considering its various types of inflammations that cause the vast majority of health problems, eating omega 3 fats regularly helps keep your natural defenses up. 72% of all walnut fats are monosaturated omega 3 fatty acids, which makes them one of the best plant sources of these essential elements. Note that the main food that contains omega 3 is fatty fish. Walnuts make a great alternative for vegans and vegetarians.
  • Walnuts benefit a weight loss diet.
    Carbs in walnuts ensure that this particular snack would provide you with energy for quite a while, so you’ll be able to prevent hunger pangs. The nuts also contain lots of fiber, which is essential for healthy metabolism.



Walnuts Nutrition Facts

When you take a look at their nutritional information, walnuts appear to be one of the healthiest foods out there. It’s definitely true as only ¼ cup of these amazing nuts contains:
  • A healthy daily dose of omega 3 fats.
  • Half of the required daily dose of copper for an adult.
  • 50% of manganese that we should consume daily on a well-balanced 2000-calorie diet.
Aside from these exceptional walnuts nutrition benefits, the nuts provide you with significant amounts of:
  • Vitamin E
  • B vitamins
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Zinc
Although in much smaller amounts, walnuts also contain calcium and selenium, as well as vitamins A and C.

When you look at the walnuts nutritional profile closely, it becomes obvious that eating a handful of them a day is extremely beneficial. You should also consider their positive effect on the nervous system as this food is a plant source of melatonin.

Walnut Recipes Everyone Would Enjoy

There are a great number of ways to enjoy walnuts. First of all, you can eat them raw, directly from the pack. If you want to enhance their flavor, try roasted walnuts.

Although their natural taste is delicious, you can ‘customize’ to fit your personal preferences by making toasted walnuts with spices, salt, or sugar. However, remember that this would affect the overall health effect of the snack.

We at Food To Live love walnuts in all their forms and would gladly share some of our favorite recipes. For example, you can try starting your day with this fantastic walnut granola:
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup banana chips
  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 4 ¼ tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 ½ tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Instructions:
  1. Mix sugar, honey, salt, oil, and spices and whisk them together thoroughly.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and make sure all of them are coated with the syrupy mixture.
  3. Place the granola-dough onto a baking pan covered with oiled parchment paper.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375F for 30-40 minutes. Let cool before eating.
Walnuts are generally a great addition to almost any baked product. As they don’t contain gluten, walnut meal is often used to make baked goods for people with this particular food sensitivity. They taste fantastic, so everyone can give these walnut recipes a try.

These incredible nuts can be used to make great vegan alternatives to milk and butter. Walnut milk, in particular, is sure to become a favorite for children, especially when flavored with sweet vanilla and cinnamon. Making it is very easy. You’ll need a cup of raw walnuts and about 4 cups of water.

In order to make proper walnut milk, you should soak the nuts overnight. Rinse them thoroughly in the morning and never use the water you soaked the nuts in for the milk. You can make the milk in a regular blender, although you’ll have to use the highest speed and power settings it can offer. Always strain the mixture and squeeze the remnants of the nuts to get every drop of nutritious liquid you can. Walnut milk can keep for up to 4 days in the fridge.

Adding a few kernels to your morning smoothie or a protein shake would enrich both its taste and nutritional value.


Walnut Storage Tips

Walnuts contain oils, so like the rest of the nuts, they should be stored in the fridge. At the very least, you should keep them in a cool pantry. Note that it’s imperative to ensure walnuts stay dry. The original Food To Live ziplock bag is airtight and can be used for storing your walnuts for months after opening. You can transfer nuts to a different airtight container of your choosing, but make sure it’s perfectly dry and clean.
