Do you know the walnut is really a fruit?
Yes! The walnut is actually a single-seeded stone fruit with a nutritional profile completely different from those of other fruits, specifically characterized by its high level of lipids. More importantly, some 70% of these lipids are in the form of Omega-3 fatty acids, shown to be highly beneficial to our cardiovascular system. The fact is, we should all make walnuts part of our regular diet. It’s worth noting that ‘a portion’ of walnuts is actually a ¼cup (60 g) serving.
