Mystical Flavors

Known for its indulgent and distinctive flavor, hazelnuts prove increasingly popular in both the food industry and among consumers. Whether used to lower the carbohydrates in baked goods, incorporated in a favorite chocolate confection or added to a gourmet entree, hazelnuts add a distinctive flavor and unique texture to many food dishes. And, hazelnuts provide a heart healthy alternative to chips. Just 1.5 ounces as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Americans are increasing having more and more hazelnuts.
