Hazelnuts Roasted Appetizer

The hazelnut comes from the hazelnut tree and is perhaps even more famous today for its use in confections such as praline, chocolate truffles or nutella.

The flavor of the hazelnut is also commonly added to coffee and liqueurs and its oil can be used for countless purposes.

The hazelnut is an oleaginous fruit that can be eaten fresh or used in various preparations, and its benefits are countless.

 

Find out more about this fruit!

1. Heart-friendly

Because it is rich in unsaturated fats, hazelnuts have the ability to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL), two essential factors for good cardiovascular health.

Studies have shown that consuming 25 grams of hazelnuts a day for 16 weeks resulted in a 2 to 10% reduction in LDL cholesterol, compared to a group that did not consume hazelnuts.

In addition, one cup of hazelnuts has the ability to provide almost half of the recommended daily dose of magnesium, the mineral responsible for regulating calcium levels which, when unregulated, can cause irregular heartbeats.

In addition, with the amount of calcium regulated, muscle contractions are stimulated, causing muscles to relax when they are not needed. This process helps to relieve muscle tension, pain, spasms, fatigue and cramps.

 

2. Protective in pregnancy

One of the nutrients present in hazelnuts and essential in pregnancy is folic acid.

A lack of this vitamin in pregnant women can cause malformation of the baby's neural tube, the fetus's primitive nervous system.

 

3. Rejuvenates

For those who want to delay the appearance of expression marks, hazelnuts can help. This is because hazelnuts are rich in flavonoids, substances responsible for fighting free radicals and therefore cellular ageing.

Flavonoids are also able to improve circulation and promote brain health.

Vitamin E, widely present in hazelnuts, is an essential vitamin when it comes to supporting the skin, our body's largest organ. A diet rich in vitamin E helps fight the signs of ageing (wrinkles and dark spots), as well as sun damage.

 

4. High in energy

Hazelnuts are very rich in energy and also contain numerous nutrients that are essential for good health. By consuming 100 grams of hazelnuts, you will transport up to 628 calories to your body. They are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and the essential fatty acid linoleic acid.

The nutritional and sensory properties of hazelnuts make them a good source of energy due to their high fat content, no less than 60.5%.

 

5. Promotes muscle mass

The high levels of magnesium and calcium present in hazelnuts can help maintain and grow healthy muscles. Magnesium helps rebuild muscle tissue, while adequate levels of calcium can help prevent muscle fatigue, cramps and pain.

For sports enthusiasts, a portion of hazelnuts is considered a good post-workout snack.

Studies carried out in Italy have shown that high levels of magnesium also contribute to increased muscle strength.

 

6. Boosts the functioning of the nervous system

We know that the nervous system needs amino acids to function, while amino acids in turn need the support of vitamin B6, a nutrient in which hazelnuts are rich.

In addition, vitamin B6 is important for the formation of myelin, which is responsible for insulating nerves, increasing the speed and efficiency of electrical impulses, which allows the nervous system to function better. Vitamin B6 can also act on the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin and adrenaline.

Vitamin E is also a great enhancer and defender of healthy brain activity.

 

7. Prevents cancer

The alpha-tocopherol contained in hazelnuts is effective in reducing the risk of bladder cancer, reducing the possibility of its occurrence by up to 50%.

Beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol found in hazelnuts, helps reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancer, as well as fighting lymphocytic leukemia.

Eating hazelnuts alone doesn't guarantee a cure for cancer or that it won't appear, but it certainly helps prevent it.

 

8. Facilitates digestion

The high fiber content in hazelnuts can ensure that the digestive system works better, thus promoting the elimination of waste and toxins and promoting the balance of chemical substances and microorganisms necessary for your body to stay healthy.

Hazelnuts are rich in B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, among others). These are essential for breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates, thus facilitating digestion.

 

9. Strengthens bones and joints

2/3 of the magnesium in your body is used to build and increase the strength of your bones.

Magnesium is therefore an essential mineral in the composition of bones, which is why the body stores additional magnesium on the surface of the bones, so that it can be used in the event of an emerging deficiency.

Hazelnuts are rich in magnesium and are therefore an essential food for the growth and resistance of your bones.

 

10. Helps with weight control

Hazelnuts are considered to be very energetic and high in calories and fat, but it's important to know that if you eat them in moderation, hazelnuts can help you lose weight.

The properties of the fruit help you to feel satisfied for longer, thus avoiding eating other less advisable foods.

 

How to use hazelnuts?

Hazelnuts can be eaten fresh or added in various ways to desserts or salads, eaten raw or toasted as a snack, along with cereals and all kinds of preparations where nuts or chestnuts are used.

Hazelnuts can also be crushed to make a flour that is added to breads, giving them a delicious aroma or flavor. In addition to food use, hazelnut trees are planted in many countries for ornamental purposes, forming living fences with colorful foliage and twisted branches.

Hazelnut oil is often used in the cosmetics industry to make skin moisturizers and shampoos. Hazelnut butter is more digestive than the hazelnut itself. In pastries, it gives a creamier consistency than hazelnut powder and is delicious spread on bread. Hazelnut drink is also a great substitute for those with milk intolerance, as a plant-based option.

To make homemade "nutella", you can make hazelnut butter by grinding the nuts in a food processor and adding a little cocoa powder.

 

How should hazelnuts be stored?

Hazelnuts should be dried so that the moisture content is around 12%, reducing the risk of aflatoxin contamination. They can be stored in cool, dry conditions for 5 months and, if placed in the freezer, can remain in good condition for a year or two.

 

Recommended daily dose of hazelnuts?

The recommended daily intake (RDA) of hazelnuts is 12 to 20 units.

 

Nutritional benefits: Although each type of nut has a specific combination of nutrients, in general, most are a source of vitamins B1, B6, E and folic acid and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus and iron, among others. The fat in nuts is predominantly unsaturated, a type of fat that helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.

 

May contain traces of other nuts and soy.
