  • Are a rich source of essential fats- hazelnuts are high in monounsaturated fat, which make up 79% of the total fat content, and very low levels of ‘unhealthy’ saturated fat (4% of total fat). They are free from trans fats and dietary cholesterol
  • Are a rich source of anti oxidants which protect cells from free radicals
  • 30G of hazelnuts provide:
  • 50% RDI intake of Vitamin E for men and 65% for women.
  • 10% of the RDI of dietary fibre in adults
  • 1/3 of the DRI of both copper and manganese. Copper             helps the body use iron and is important in nerve function.       Manganese is involved in bone formation and        carbohydrate metabolism
