Walnuts On The Rise At Waitrose

Waitrose Walnut Pieces 200g

Waitrose is reporting that sales of the humble walnut are up 13% year on year at Waitrose as customers continue to look to nuts for healthy snacks and for healthier ingredients for their dishes. Celebrity chefs including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Mary Berry and Lorraine Pascal, have recently included numerous walnut based recipes in their cookery books also helping to whet our appetites for all things walnut.

Tim Shaw, Nut Buyer at Waitrose said; “Walnuts look set to be the new nut of choice. Providing a variety of vitamins and minerals, walnuts are a great snack on the go and no longer need to be the one-trick nut confined to coffee cake.”

Like other nuts walnuts are rich in vitamins in minerals. They include manganese and are a good source of vitamin E, thiamin, B6, folate, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper.*

Emma Williams, Nutritionist at Waitrose comments; “Walnuts are high in manganese, a mineral important for bone health and also provide a source of vitamin E, thiamin, B6, folate, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper.* These vitamins and minerals have various functions in the body, from helping the heart to function to reducing tiredness and boosting your immune system. So, if you’re looking to add something positive to  your diet, a handful of walnuts per day, whether that’s in a meal or as a quick snack, will help you get more of those  beneficial nutrients.”
