Nuts about wal­nuts

Christchurch Mail - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - EVENTS

West Mel­ton is the cen­tre of wal­nut grow­ing in New Zealand and next week is host­ing a Wal­nut Fes­ti­val in their hon­our.

Lo­cals are very proud of their nat­u­ral, lo­cally grown and su­per healthy su­per­food want you to join them to find out more. The West Mel­ton Vil­lage Re­tail Cen­tre will host tast­ings, dis­play and in­for­ma­tion on this hum­ble healthy nut on Oc­to­ber 14.

Most stale or bit­ter wal­nuts are im­ported and have been cracked and the ker­nels stored for a long time un­til they were shipped to our shores.

Prop­erly han­dled New Zealand grown wal­nuts are not de­graded through age­ing so the vi­ta­mins, min­er­als and oil con­tents are not com­pro­mised. They are fresh, lo­cally grown, and not bleached as some im­ported wal­nuts can be.

Wal­nuts have been as­cribed a range of health ben­e­fits in­clud­ing help­ing to lower the risk of heart dis­ease, im­prov­ing brain func­tion and im­prov­ing meta­bolic pa­ram­e­ters in peo­ple with type 2 di­a­betes.

Let’s get crack­ing.

Wal­nuts of the kind on show for tasting at the West Mel­ton Wal­nut Fes­ti­val in the town­ship’s re­tail cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 14.
