California Walnuts

Swasth brings health in the form of the finest Californian Walnuts, grown and processed with expert care.

Walnuts are the only tree nut that is an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the plant-based omega-3 essential fatty acids. Walnuts are also completely free of cholesterol and a good source of magnesium which is an important mineral involved in the body’s processes. A 1 ounce serving of walnuts provides 2.5g of ALA. Walnut contain the ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 at 4.2:1.

A study in healthy adults showed that eating a walnut-rich meal prevented oxidative damage of LDL cholesterol. That’s beneficial because oxidized LDL is prone to build up in your arteries, causing atherosclerosis (blockage of blood vessels over time due to fat and cholesterol).

In addition walnuts are excellent sources of protein and fiber.

Most people don’t get enough dietary fiber, which promotes healthy bowel function and helps you feel full–a key component in maintaining a healthy weight.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store Swasth California Walnuts?

It is suggested to store walnut kernels either in the original packaging or in a zip lock bag. The best place to store them is in your refrigerator or freezer, depending on when you’re going to consume them. If you’re planning on eating the walnuts right away or within 1-4 weeks then place them in your refrigerator. If you will be storing them for a month or longer then the freezer is better.

For InShell walnuts it is better to store them in a jar, uncracked, in a cool and dry place such as the pantry.

Can you cook with Swasth California Walnuts?

Our walnuts can be cooked in any way you prefer (baking, roasting, frying). However due to how special these walnuts are it is suggested to not cook them for a very long duration due to how delicate they are. Our suggested method would be to lightly frying, blending and then adding them to your favorite gravies/sauces to add that extra richness to your dishes. They can be chopped and added as a topping to your favorite desserts and ice cream or blended with a little salt, honey and walnut oil to make walnut butter. They can also be added to smoothies for that nutty taste.
