#1 Nut for Folate
Hazelnuts are the richest source of folate among tree nuts. Folate, also known as folic acid or vitamin B-12, is essential for many of our body's metabolic processes. It aids the production of red blood cells, and supports brain function and cardiovascular health.
What's more, our hazelnuts are an excellent source of calcium and folate, as well as being low in cholesterol and sodium.
