More About Our Walnuts
Are walnuts good for you?
Walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help moderate a healthy heart. When walnuts are eaten as part of a balanced diet, they help keep your arteries free of plaque and reduce inflammation in your body. Omega-3 acids have also been shown to raise the levels of ‘good’ cholesterol (known as HDL) in your body.
How are walnuts harvested?
Walnuts are harvested when the nut reaches maturity, at this point the hull start to split. Harvest time for USA-grown walnuts is from mid-September until November. A mechanical shaker is used to shake the nuts off the tree, and then the nuts are picked up using harvesting equipment. Hullers remove the outer hulls, leaving the shells. At Olam, our bulk walnuts for sale have been hand cracked, which ensures the walnuts are better looking and retain their shelf life.
