Store in cool dark place, buy unsalted and unprocessed.

Adequate source protein and contain a range of vitamins (A and D, B2, B3, B1) and minerals (magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron)  and Essential Fatty Acids. Highest protein levels in peanuts.

Little healthy eating snack idea: toasted with a little soy sauce.

Use nut oils (dark bottle, unrefined), hazelnut, almond and walnut, which are great for salads.

Have 100% nut butters as a snack with sliced fruit or oat cakes.
