There is a great source of evidence that eating a handful of peanuts and nuts on a daily basis has a positive effect on our health.
They help you keep your heart healthy and balance your weight, and they play a role in the prevention of diabetes.
But most of all they are a delicious snack and are used worldwide as an ingredient in recipes.
Consumers love trying new things and even more, they love nuts and dried fruits. But with all the news on food-related health issues,
people are becoming increasingly more aware about what they put in their bodies.
In fact, over two-thirds of U.S. consumers (68%) have reported taking more "active steps to eat more healthily" over the previous year.
So whether you're a research chef, executive chef, or product developer, try adding nuts as the perfect way to create a mouth-watering product or meal that your customer can enjoy without a lot of guilt.
