Hazelnut paste is a perfect addition to a variety of foods, as it not only adds an amazing flavour boost but also boasts a number of vital nutrients. Today’s savvy foodies are looking for healthy foods that at the same time taste great.
Hazelnuts can be offered as snacks before a meal, as a garnish beside the main dish, or they can be delicately placed on top of ice cream to provide a little extra colour (and crunch). Hazelnut paste, on the other hand, can simply be added to different recipes.
Not all hazelnut pastes are the same, and it’s important to check the list of ingredients to make sure that you aren’t simply adding sugar with only a small amount of hazelnut flavouring. At Almondena, we source only premium quality hazelnut paste without added ingredients, providing all of the nutritional benefits you’d expect from a gourmet product.
Hazelnuts contain proanthocyanidins, which are flavonoids that are known to improve circulation, improve the symptoms commonly associated with many allergies while supporting brain health. They also contain healthy fats to keep the heart protected and oleic acid, which can help lower LDL levels. They are full of vitamin E, vitamin B, calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron plus other necessary vitamins and minerals.
Many food enthusiasts nowadays are becoming more conscious about the health benefits of products. When you want to offer greater health benefits at your restaurant, reach for hazelnut paste. It is a welcome addition to icings, ice cream, ganache, sauces, gravies and much more.
