Top 5 Healthiest Nuts | Crunchy Snacking Options

Tuesday 10th May, 2022

People of all ages like nuts. In a world of calorie-conscious people, it's a relief to know that crunchy, snacking options like nuts exist.

Nuts are a good source of healthy fats and plant protein. Moreover, they pair really well with a great variety of foods. They perform well as part of dish too. - salads, cereal and sweets are all great examples.

Nuts come in different flavours, and textures, and have nutrient profiles. Studies also show that nuts play an important role in improving a child's protein and fibre intake.

With over 20 types of edible nuts that are found around the world, which ones are the best to put on your plate?

Here are the top nuts that can be a good addition to your diet.

The Top 5 Healthiest Nuts

Almonds

Almonds are known for being a high calcium nut. These are nuts with impressive nutrient profiles that can be bought at a lot of stores at a relatively low price. Almonds also make a great addition to desserts and chocolates, and are equally good in a mixed nut selection.

Pecans

Pecans are mild and sweet nuts which are rich in healthy fats, fibre, and vitamins. They are popular as an addition to cakes, pies & salads. Moreover, pecans also contain high amounts of dietary fibre which is important to improve digestion.

Pistachios

Pistachios are vibrant nuts packed with nutrients including vitamin B6. They are members of the cashew family and are native to Central Asia and the Middle East. Pistachios are really popular among kids as they love the process of splitting open the shell.

Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts are a very popular ingredient for desserts. These nuts are also a really good source of vitamins and minerals. They are also helpful when it comes to improving your diet quality and increasing one’s antioxidant intake.

Peanuts

Not actually nuts! Peanuts technically belong to the legume family - this is the same family as peas and lentils. Nuts have a very similar nutrient profile to legumes, comparable dietary benefits and culinary uses.

Most people classify them as groundnuts. In terms of consumption and production, peanuts beat other nuts by a fair margin. In fact, peanuts are the most consumed groundnut in the whole world.
