Go nuts about your health!
If you avoid eating nuts, dried fruits and seeds you will be missing out on a major source of protein, minerals and antioxidant vitamins. They are amongst nature's richest and healthiest foods, offering significant health benefits. Nuts, dried fruits and Seeds should be eaten regularly. They contain high levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs), otherwise known as 'good' fats. They are a rich source of other nutrients, especially the amino acids necessary to produce complete and digestible protein and also contain Vitamins A, B, C and E as well as the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, selenium and manganese. They are so rich in nutrients only a small amount is required each day. Dried fruits are excellent providers of energy, are low in fat and can be eaten on their own or combined in recipes. They are low on the glycaemic index (GI), which means they are absorbed slowly from the stomach into the bloodstream. They are excellent sources of minerals, being particularly high in iron, potassium and selenium, are high in fibre and Vitamin A and a good natural laxative. See the chart below for more detailed information on nutritional values of nuts, dried fruits and seeds.
Vitamin A comes from plants and animals and is not stored in the body. Beta- Carotene is often termed as pro Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps benefit your vision, tissues, skin, teeth, hair, nails and bones in many ways. Products: papaya, tomatoes, peaches, apricots, mango, prunes,almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachio, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and tomatoes.
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamin)
Thiamin is a water soluble vitamin, meaning any excess is excreted and not stored in the body. It is highly beneficial for the nervous system and one's mental disposition. It helps maintain healthy nerves and improve memory and mental clarity. Thiamin is also necessary to help convert carbohydrates in food to energy. Products: sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts, linseed and tomatoes.
Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin)
People have an increased need for Riboflavin during stressful situations and it is the most common vitamin deficiency. Its primary function is to work with other substances to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats for energy. It has a profound effect on thyroid hormone production, helps in the production of immune cells to fight infection, and aids in transporting oxygen to cells in the body. Products: almonds, cashews, hazelnuts and tomatoes.
One of the more important vitamins, B-6 performs over 100 valuable functions for the body. According to an American survey, only 1/3 of adults and 1/2 of women get enough B-6 in their diet. B-6 helps convert amino acids into serotonin. It helps red blood cells, makes proteins, and manufactures brain chemicals. B-6 is believed to play a vital role in disease prevention and treatment. Products: prunes, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, linseed, cashews, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios, walnuts and tomatoes.
A potent antioxidant that may prevent premature death from heart disease and cancer. A vital protector of cells.

Drying fruit is the oldest method of preserving it and is a convenient way to add sugar and fibre to a diet. Being lighter to carry than fresh fruits, with no messy juices or peelings, a handful of dried fruit can give an instant energy boost with an injection of vitamins and minerals too. To produce dried fruit, the water is removed from fully ripened fresh fruit, by circulating air around it, either naturally with sunshine and wind, or with the aid of hot air drying. The moisture content of the evaporated fruit is cut to about 20-25%. The nutritional value of food is only minimally affected by drying. However, dried fruit generally does not contain Vitamin D and only contains small amounts of Vitamin C.
- Drying concentrates the nutrients of the fresh fruit including protein, carbohydrate (in the form of natural fruit sugar), and dietary fibre
- Rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, and Pantothenic Acid
- An abundant source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, copper and manganese
- Contains around 60-70% natural sugars which occur in an easily digestible form (Glucose and Fructose), and quickly enter the bloodstream giving instant energy
- Low in fat. While all dried fruit is good for you, dried plums (prunes) are antioxidant superstars, being among the highest fruits in total antioxidant activity. Antioxidants work to prevent cancer, heart disease, cataracts, and other diseases associated with ageing, by mopping up the free radicals that damage cells.
The apple is a good source of dietary fibre, providing you with nearly 20% of your needs for the day. Apples are a good source of the antioxidant Vitamin C that helps to maintain a healthy immune system. This powerful antioxidant aids in defending the body against damaging free radicals. Apples and apple products contain between 3% and 8% of the daily value for potassium. Consuming 3500 milligrams of this essential nutrient each day may help reduce high blood pressure.

They have more protein than whole wheat (13 percent)and have a complete spectrum of antioxidant carotenoids, including beta-carotene (a better source than even carrots!) and zeaxanthin (protects the eyes). Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids of all known foods. They contain Vitamin C at higher levels than even those found in oranges as well as the B-complex vitamins, necessary for converting food into energy. They contain Vitamin E (very rarely found in fruits, only in grains and seeds)and Beta-Sitosterol, an anti-inflammatory agent. Beta-Sitosterol also lowers cholesterol and has been used to treat sexual impotence and prostate enlargement. Gojis contain essential fatty acids, which are required for the body’s production of hormones and for the smooth functioning of the brain and nervous system. Also present is Cyperone, a sesquiterpene that benefits the heart and blood pressure, alleviates menstrual discomfort, and has been used in the treatment of cervical cancer and Solavetivone, a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial compound. They also contain Physalin, a natural compound that is active against all major types of leukemia. It has been shown to increase splenic natural killer cell activity in normal and tumor-bearing mice, with broad-spectrum anti-cancer effect. It has also been used as a treatment for hepatitis B. Gojis contain Betaine, which is used by the liver to produce choline, a compound that calms nervousness, enhances memory, promotes muscle growth, and protects against fatty liver disease. Betaine also provides methyl groups in the body’s energy reactions and can help reduce levels of homocysteine, a prime risk factor in heart disease.It also protects DNA.
Not a fruit but a plant root/herb in its natural form, although we also sell a delicious soft processed liquorice. Liquorice has been used since ancient times as both a food and a medicine. Chinese herbal formulas nearly all contain the herb.

About a decade ago, nuts gained a bad reputation for being calorie-dense and high in fat. However, research now shows that they offer an abundance of nutritional benefits and can be part of a healthy diet. They may help reduce the risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer. The key is to enjoy nuts in small portions. One third of a cup of mixed nuts supplies about 270 calories and has about the same amount of protein as a 4 ounce portion of meat. It is also cholesterol-free. Nuts are a suitable substitute for animal protein when combined with grains and vegetables. Most of the fats in nuts are the really good heart-healthy kind: mono- or poly-unsaturated, rather than artery-clogging saturated fats. Unsaturated fats can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels when combined with other healthy lifestyle approaches. Nuts are very satisfying, help you feel full longer and can help maintain a healthy weight. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals and fibre and are one of few foods rich in vitamin E, a heart-healthy antioxidant.
Rich in protein - weight for weight they contain nearly 75% more than eggs. They also have healthy amounts of essential micro-nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, phosphorous and copper, as well as Vitamin B2, miacin and the anti-oxidant Vitamin E, which can help fight cancer. In addition, they are particularly high in calcium - good for people who are lactose intolerant. Almonds can also help as part of a bone-boosting diet to beat osteoporosis. A 100g portion provides a third of the adult recommended daily requirement. Research in Canada found that people with high cholesterol who ate 25g (1oz) of almonds a day lowered their cholesterol by an average of 4%.
One of the richest sources of selenium, a micro-nutrient essential for the immune system and with a number of potential anti-cancer properties. A study in the U.S. found that a supplement of 200mcg of selenium a day reduced cancer of the postrate, lung and colon by around 50%. Scientists from the University of Illinois also believe that selenium may protect women from developing breast cancer. Brazil Nuts are ideal for vegetarian and vegans since weight for weight they contact as much protein as eggs. They are an excellent source of phosphorous, which helps builds bones and teeth, and a rich source of magnesium, essential for the smooth operation of muscles and nerves. Brazil Nuts also contain linoleic acid, important for the skin and hormone balance.

Eating 28g (1oz) of peanuts five or more times a week may help lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes in women, according to studies by the Harvard School of Public Health. Peanuts are high in unsaturated fat and magnesium, which decreases insulin resistance. Being rich in Omega-2 fats, peanuts maintain healthy cells and supple skin, as well as lowering total cholesterol in the blood. A study in the U.S. found a significant drop in heart disease in women aged between 34 to 59 who were eating a variety of nuts - particularly peanuts - five times a week. Peanuts are packed with nutrients including iron, zinc, Vitamin E, magnesium, folic acid and resveratrol, which is effective in fighting cancer-causing free radicals.
Pecan nuts are 53% fat by weight yet they may reduce low density lipoprotein, a type of cholesterol associated with heart disease. More than half the fat in pecans are monounsaturated, which is believed to help some bad cholesterol levels and may also prevent blood clots, which can cause heart attacks or strokes. Pecans are a good source of fibre, Vitamin E - 100g provide more that the recommended daily allowance - copper and magnesium. They also contact zinc, good for the skin and essential for the reproductive and immune systems.
100g pine nuts contain 31g protein, the highest of the nuts and seeds.

They contain almost 60mg of plant sterols per ounce, which are believed to help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Pistachios are also an excellent source of monounsaturated fats that help reduce bad cholesterol levels.
Tiger nuts are rich in minerals and vitamins, particularly phosphor,potassium and vitamins C and E.
When Dr Steven Pratt introduced the concept of Super Foods in his 2004 best-selling book,"Superfoods Rx", he explained the concept as "some foods are better than others for your health". Walnuts were identified as one of only fourteen "superfoods" because of their high omega-3 content, a distinction that makes walnuts unique among tree nuts and peanuts. Walnuts are the only nut that contain a significant amount of omega-3's. Walnuts are also known for their high antioxidant activity, a 2002 study conducted in Norway showed that walnuts rank second only to rose hips in their antioxidant content. "What's the single easiest, most delicious and health-promoting snack food on the planet? My vote goes to walnuts" Dr Steven G Pratt,MD. Scripps Memorial Hospital,. San Diego, CA.
A seed is packed with a wide range of nutrients and nature has assembled them in such a way that the seed itself can maintain the initial stages of growth of the plant that bore it. Therefore, they are rich in minerals that support growth, such as zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium and selenium. Seeds are also naturally gluten-free, have a good fibre content, and are a great source of protein that is not animal-derived. The essential fats in seeds are mostly of the omega 6 variety, although most do provide some omega 3, in addition to vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant. The combination of fat and protein means that, as a food, seeds are broken down slowly, so they have a low score on the glycaemic index. Because the addition of protein will slow down the rate food breaks down, they are especially useful for snacks and as a way to add concentrated levels of nutrients to main meals. For example, sprinkling a tablespoon of seeds on a soup just before you eat it, or mixing it into a salad or in a sandwich, instantly improves the nutritional quality. Seeds are also great when added to smoothies, sneaking some into a home-made smoothie of fruits and yogurt is an excellent way to get children to have the omega fats that they need for growth and brain function. The ideal intake should be two heaped tablespoons per day. Seeds should be kept cool, away from direct sunlight.
Chia is grown commercially for its seed,a food that is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids since the seeds yield 25-30% extractable oil, mostly a-linolenic acid (ALA). It also is a source of antioxidants and a variety of amino acids. Chia seeds typically small ovals with a diameter of about 1 mm (0.039 in). They are mottle-colored with brown, gray, black and white. Chia seeds typically contain 20% protein 34%oil, 25% dietry fibre (mostly soluble with high molecular weight), and significant levels of antioxidants(chlorogenic and caffeic acids, myricetin quercetin and kaempferol flavonols). The oil from chia seeds contains a very high concentration of omega-3 fatty acid —approximately 64% Chia seeds contain no gluten and trace levels of sodium. Chia seed is traditionally consumed in Mexico, and the southwestern United States, but is not widely known in Europe.
