It's time for Eid! Cook your favourite Eid delicacies by adding the extra goodness of health and nutrition with California walnuts! Known for its nutritional and health benefits, walnuts are the go-to-nut for any drink, snack, main course or dessert. An extremely versatile ingredient, walnuts blend perfectly with anything they are incorporated into.
Walnuts are the only nut that provides a significant amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acid and a handful (28g) of walnuts also provides a convenient source of protein (4g) and fiber (2g).
