Gluten Free Ingredients Organic Walnuts
ingredients: certified organic walntus
information: Walnuts, like cashews, macadamia nuts and pecans, are tree nuts. While they are high in calories, these calories come primarily from healthy unsaturated fats. Walnuts can be eaten raw, but they can also be added to baked goods, salads or oatmeal to improve flavor and increase healthy fat content.
minerals: Like many other nuts, walnuts are a good source of copper and manganese. Both copper and manganese are trace minerals so you need only small amounts per day. One serving of walnuts provides 53 percent of the RDA of copper and 45 percent of manganese. Copper works with iron to produce red blood cells and also supports the immune and nervous systems. Manganese works as an antioxidant to protect your body from stress. It also aids in metabolism, bone formation and wound healing. One serving of walnuts also provides 15 percent of the RDA of phosphorus.
While walnuts do not provide large amounts of any one vitamin, they do provide small amounts of many different vitamins. One serving of walnuts provides 12 percent of the RDA of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 supports the nervous system and aids in the production of hormones and red blood cells. One serving of walnuts also provides 9 percent of the RDA of thiamine and 7 percent of folate, both of which are B vitamins.
