Wholesale Hazelnuts Blanched

Our wholesale hazelnuts blanched are great for baking or snacking. Hazelnuts are widely used in the confectionery, as an addition to chocolates, biscuits, sweets, and cakes. Blanched nuts provide that great hazelnut flavor without adding the darker coloring brought on by the skin. Blanched hazelnuts have a much mellower flavor and are great in savory dishes as a crushed topping, or for dredging & coating.Our wholesale hazelnuts blanched can be used to make hazelnut butter, which is popular alternative for peanut allergy sufferers. It is also less salty in taste. It contains, however, more fat content than soy or peanut butter.Hazelnuts can be available in the market year around. In the stores, several different forms of hazels can be sold such as shelled, unshelled, salted, sweetened, or ground, etc. Try to buy unshelled (with the outer shell) raw nuts instead of processed ones. The nuts should feature bright brown-yellow color, compact, uniform in size and feel heavy in hand. They should not feature any surface cracks, molds, and spots and free of rancid smell. Shelled hazelnuts can be stored in cool dry place for years. Store shelled (without their outer coat) nuts or flour, however, inside an airtight container and place in the refrigerator to avoid them turn rancid.  Health benefits of Hazelnuts: Hazelnuts are very high in energy and loaded with numerous health-benefiting nutrients that are essential for optimum health. 100g nuts carry 628 calories.
