Which nuts are healthy to eat?

  1. With a handful of nuts a day (25 grams) you do your body a favor. Nuts lower your LDL cholesterol, which helps keep your arteries healthy. Nuts also provide many beneficial nutrients such as fiber, protein, iron and unsaturated fat. How much is that actually, a handful of nuts? Watch the video.

Are all unsalted nuts equally healthy?

  1. All unsalted nuts and peanuts are good for you. So unroasted (raw), roasted and roasted. Think almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts. Peanuts are officially legumes, but resemble nuts in composition and use. That is why we count them among the nuts in this advice. There are differences: Unroasted nuts have not been processed and only contain their own nutrients. Nuts that are never roasted anyway are walnuts and Brazil nuts. Roasted nuts are nuts that have been fried in oil. Because the nuts are roasted at a high temperature, these nuts contain slightly less vitamins and minerals than the unroasted raw variety. That makes little difference to their health value. Because nuts already contain many healthy unsaturated fats, they hardly absorb any oil anymore. Roasted nuts therefore contain about the same amount of fat as raw nuts. Roasted nuts are roasted with dry air. No oil was used here.

Nut spreads

  1. Nut butters and peanut butter made from 100% nuts or 100% peanuts also count for nuts. A thick sandwich counts as a hand. Check the label to make sure no salt and sugar has been added.

Selenium and vegetarians

  1. The selenium content varies between different nuts. Because vegetarians do not eat meat, they have to get some selenium from nuts. Brazil nuts in particular contain a lot of selenium. Almonds and hazelnuts hardly contain any selenium.
