In Italy, walnuts are considered a rational crop. The Sorrento walnuts are by far the most widespread and finest walnuts of Italian origin. Crunchy, with a fresh flavour and versatility in the kitchen, Sorrento’s fresh walnuts are a precious ingredient to prepare many sweet and savoury recipes. They go great with salads., first or main courses, and pair perfectly with cheese or fruits such as figs, pears and apples. Walnuts can also be included in bread, cakes and biscuits giving them a flavourful crunch.
- Sorrento’s walnuts are a highly nutritious food that is good for our health as they contain vitamin A, vitamin E, B1, B2, folic acid, arginine, dietary fibre and mineral salts such as phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, calcium and copper.
- 30g of walnuts per day can keep cholesterol levels under control because they have a high quantity of polyunsaturated fatty acids, the so-called 'good fats'.
- Walnuts also have a good quantity of Omega-3 and Omega-6 which are essential for the correct functioning of the cardiovascular system.
