Hazelnuts

Organic hazelnut orchards in Turkey are known to attract insects and mites. For this reason, kernels need to be checked carefully during production for insect damage using visual controls. Aflatoxin levels must be verified before the hazelnuts are taken into production because, unlike dried figs, infected kernels cannot be sorted out of the product using UV light.

Once organic hazelnut kernels are properly dried, neither disease incidence nor severity increase unless they are stored in high humidity conditions that can favor mold growth. Mold growth can occur in hazelnuts in some cases which is why mold and yeast levels have to be checked for every batch. We produce organic Turkish hazelnuts in compliance with Turkish Food Codex and EU food production standards. We supply hazelnuts to small shops as well as wholesalers in Turkey and to importers throughout the world. We are the best place to go for organic raw hazelnuts. Our company can deliver organic Turkish hazelnuts in bulk.

Benefits of Organic Hazelnuts

The crunchy texture and flavor of hazelnuts make them perfect additions to nut and trail mixes. They can be chopped and used as a topping for salads or to coat meat dishes. The taste of hazelnuts blends particularly well with that of chocolate in recipes, and they are irreplaceable ingredients in the production of baked goods, biscuits, chocolate and ice cream. Hazelnut oil is used in cooking and cosmetics.

  • Benefits of Hazelnuts
  • Hazelnuts are small, hard-shelled fruits as well as seeds. They are rich in energy and nutrients. Their significant saturated and monounsaturated fat content makes them an excellent source of dietary fat. They are more beneficial when consumed raw, as 15% of their fat content is lost during roasting.
  • Raw hazelnuts are twice as high in antioxidants as roasted hazelnuts. They can be added to food either raw or roasted. Their fat content makes them ideal energy-dense snacks. Since they are rich in a variety of beneficial compounds such as omega-3 fatty acids, arginine, fiber, vitamins E, B2 and B6, amino acids and folic acid, hazelnuts are an important part of a health-conscious diet.
