Nuts contribute a lot of nutrition to every part of the body, as long as they are chosen and used correctly.
* Hard shell seeds.
1. When buying hard shell seeds, consider that the shell must not have deep scars, holes or cracks. When shaking, the seeds can’t be heard rattling in the shell. The kernel must be full, firm, uniform in color and size. Hard shell seeds have a fairly durable lifespan. If you want to keep them for a long time, just leave the seeds in the shell and store them. Depending on the type of seed, we can store them all year without spoiling. If storing shelled seeds, keep them in an airtight container.
2. Seeds are mostly nutritious when taken in their raw form. The reason is that 15% of the nutritionally beneficial oils naturally contained in the seeds are lost during the roasting process. Be careful because if you process the seeds at too high a temperature, they can produce chemicals that accelerate the aging process of the body when consumed.
3. It should be noted: hard shell seeds bring quite a lot of calories. A handful of nuts (about 30g) contains between 160 and 200 calories. Consumption of these nuts should be limited to 30g to 40g per day in their unsalted or seasoned form and should be drunk with a full glass of water after eating them.
