These raw California grown walnuts are the finest quality nuts available, bursting with crunchy, all natural mouthwatering flavor. Walnuts had been considered too fatty to be a healthy snack, but the latest scientific evidence suggest that the nuts actually lower blood cholesterol levels and are heart healthy. 90 percent of the fats in walnuts are unsaturated, and the nuts are high in protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and other antioxidants.
