Hazelnut - Bottle - 250g
Hazelnuts, also known as filberts, are a sweet-flavored nut that can be enjoyed in baked recipes, as snacks and at meals. Hazelnuts contain vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and healthy fats. They add a nutty and rich flavor to baked desserts. They may also boost the nutritional profile of a salad. According to the Hazelnut Council, hazelnuts provide many health benefits and are a good inclusion in the daily diet.
Basic Nutritional Information
Hazelnuts are relatively high in calories -- at 178 calories per ounce, they provide 9 percent of the daily energy intake in a typical 2,000-calorie diet. Each ounce of hazelnuts boasts 4 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates, including 2.7 grams of beneficial dietary fiber.
Phytochemicals to the Body
Hazelnuts contains phytopchemicals, including proanthocyanidins, quercetin and kaempherol. These proanthocyanidins belong to a group called the flavonoids. Flavonoids may support brain health, may improve circulation and may reduce symptoms associated with allergies. Consuming a handful of hazelnuts for a snack may provide your body with all these healthy benefits, says the Hazelnut Council.
