Sometimes called a filbert (the French name) or a hazelnut (the English name), these raw, organic hazelnuts are a delicious energy-boost you can enjoy any time of day. To roast kernels, spread whole kernels in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 275 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes. Take care not to over roast as nuts can scorch quickly. Consuming just 1.5 ounces of hazelnuts per day may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Nutritionists have long touted the health benefits of raw foods. The "Raw" logo indicates that the food was not heated above 118 F, which is the temperature at which many beneficial enzymes are believed to be destroyed. Raw foods contain more usable nutrients than their "cooked" counterparts, along with being easily absorbed by the body.
