Nuts – Organic vs Non-organic

Nuts have many wonderful health benefits and unfortunately a high amount of pesticides are used in the conventional production of nuts. Organic nuts are produced with no pesticide, synthetic fertilisers and chemicals, so you can enjoy a healthy nut with great flavour too.

Nuts are good for you, they are cholesterol-free, contain healthy unsaturated fats which can help lower the risk of heart disease. Nuts also provide magnesium, which helps maintain bone structure; and chromium, which helps to ensure proper insulin function. They contain zinc for growth and wound healing, and manganese, which protects against free radicals. All nuts are a good source of vitamin E, an important antioxidant. Like all plant foods, they are high in fibre and phytochemicals?both of which help protect against cancer and other chronic diseases.
