Yes, pine nuts really do come from pine trees and despite the name, pine nuts are actually not nuts at all but the seeds of the pine cone. Pine nuts are great for snacks, or as a delicious addition to your favorite salad, cookie or brownie recipe. They're tasty, natural and an elegant alternative to other nuts.
The best thing about pine nuts is their high concentration of monounsaturated fat, which paves the way for a healthier cardiovascular system. The vitamin D in pine nuts leads to stronger bones and teeth, by improving the body's ability to absorb calcium, and vitamins A and C may sharpen vision and boost the immune system.
Some possible benefits of our Raw Pine Nuts may include:
● Cardiovascular support
● Excellent source of iron
● Supporting eye health
● Increasing energy levels
● Supporting healthy weight loss
