Walnuts are a fantastic source of Omega-3 fatty acids (second to none in the nut world) and are one of the most effective nuts to encourage a healthy heart. Walnuts can help reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) whilst preserving levels of good cholesterol (HDL). This delicious nut also contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, which can actually undo some of the damaging effects of a high saturated-fat diet.
The high levels of 'healthy fats', protein and dietary fibre make Walnuts a particularly nutritious snack and can be very beneficial as part of a weight management diet. The nutritional content of Walnuts has been shown to increase the feeling of 'fullness' and help keep hunger at bay. In addition, walnuts contain the antioxidant compound 'ellagic acid' that supports the immune system and has been shown to have several anticancer properties.
These Walnut Halves are 100% natural with no added salt or flavourings and are the perfect choice for a healthy and nutritious snack.
