Nutritional information

By Jean Hailes naturopath and herbalist Sandra Villella

Eating a handful of nuts daily is associated with a lower risk of mortality (dying) from all-cause, cardiovascular disease and cancer, even with as little as one serving per week.

Nuts provide some protein, good fats, and minerals such as calcium and magnesium. They also help us to stay full longer.

Usually I recommend raw nuts, but these roasted nuts offer a welcome wholefood treat amidst other alternatives.

The sweet and savoury combination of maple syrup and antioxidant-rich herbs (turmeric and rosemary), balanced with the saltiness of tamari, make this a very moreish snack.

Perfect as a gift for someone you care about and hope will be around a long time.
