Our Certified Organic Hazelnuts have been soaked and dried at low temperatures and kept refrigerated both before and after this process. Packaged in a vapor barrier bag to protect the nuts from sunlight and moisture, Wilderness Family Naturals does everything possible to ensure these nuts are the highest quality, most delicious hazelnuts available!
They are soaked as Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation suggests, and then dehydrated at low temperatures.
Our Certified Organic Hazelnuts (filberts) are fresh, flavorful and delicious. We do our best to procure the highest quality nuts available. They are soaked and dried under controlled conditions with commercial equipment in a USDA inspected kitchen. We take extra measures, such as refrigeration and vapor barrier packaging to insure that you receive only the best.
In July 2003, the FDA released a qualified health claim stating "Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
