The walnut, like the acorn and the hazelnut, is a small fruit capable of great benefits.
It is said that foods take the form of organs of the human body they are good for – in this case, it is not hard to recognise a shape similar to that of the brain. In fact, walnuts are rich in omegas 3 and 6, essential for proper brain and nervous system function. But there are more benefits: the walnut is rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and B vitamins and is a source of fats – but good fats. Eat it raw, use it in salads, replace meat in vegetarian and vegan recipes, or as a base or complement for delicious desserts. The walnut is suitable for everything: a true superfood!
