China and Iran actually produce more walnuts than the United States, but the U.S. exports more. The walnuts we sell are English Walnuts as opposed to black walnuts. The husk of the English walnut is thinner, easier to crack, and therefore easier to process. Both the English and the Black walnut are similar in their nutritional value. Pound for pound walnuts are a nutrient-dense food. 100 grams of walnuts contain 15.2 grams of protein, 65.2 grams of fat, and 6.7 grams of dietary fiber. The protein in walnuts provides many essential amino acids. Wikepedia reports, “Compared to certain other nuts, such as almonds, peanuts and hazelnuts, walnuts (especially in their raw form) contain the highest total level of antioxidants, including both free antioxidants and antioxidants bound to fiber.”
