Does Roasted Nuts have different nutritional value than raw?
We have something to tell you about this:
Nuts are great for snack and in most of the cases they are helpfull to loose weight, but sometimes toasted nuts are too salty that interfere with body fluid proccesing required when eliminating toxins or doing excercise…
Nuts have a great protective power against cholesterol that acts in two ways: lower the level of bad cholesterol in the blood and increases the elasticity of the arteria.
If you are trying to loose weigh, or have high blood pressure or want a protein snack before training: just pick raw nuts or unsalted toasted nuts and always without preservatives or additives…
All nuts provide minerals like calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc and magnesium, of course each has different nutritional values, as ALMONDS have a powerful antioxidant feature thanks to vitamins B and E and help the digestive process, preventing constipation and cleansing the body.
PEANUTS are the best sources of protein in the plant kingdom, contain a good amount of folate (Promote Fertility), manganese (Aids in Blood Sugar Regulation), Tryptophan (Helps Fight Depression), Vitamin B3 (Boosts Memory Power), Copper (Helps Lower Cholesterol Levels), heart-friendly monounsaturated fats and antioxidants such as oleic acid, Vitamin B2 (Protects Against Age-related Cognitive Decline). BRTAZIL NUTS have magnesium, selenium, copper; CASHEWS do have magnesium, copper, plant sterols, HAZELNUTS are loaded in vitamin E, copper, manganese; MACADAMIA has manganese, plant sterols; PECANS contain copper, manganese while PINE NUTS magnesium, copper, manganese, plant sterols; PISTACHIOS contain vitamin B6, copper, manganese. And WALNUTS are good source of copper, manganese, ALA (an omega-3 fat).
That is why eating nuts regularly is associated with a lowered risk of weight gain. Research has shown that people who eat nuts at least twice weekly are much less likely to gain weight than those who almost never eat them.
The question is, do the same benefits apply if you buy roasted nuts compared to those not roasted?
Well Some nuts, such as cashews, are better roasted and some are better raw but when it comes to the nutritional difference between raw and dry roasted (not oil roasted!) nuts is very, very minimal. You do not lose nutritional value by dry roasting nuts.
The big difference is how are they roasted and what was added when roasting or packing!
The overall nutrient composition of each nut variety is actually quite diverse, and so they can be impacted quite differently by varying roasting temperatures and times. Most of the times It can be difficult to find really dry roasted versions of some nuts, and the added oil required for oil-roasting can be more susceptible to heat damage than fats that are naturally present within the nuts and seeds. As whole natural foods, nuts and seeds have their own natural protective factors and these factors help protect their fats from damage by heat and other factors. By contrast, processed added oils (extra fat) may not have any natural sources of protection from heat. In addition, then comes the excessive amount of salt (excess of sodium), artificial flavors and preservatives to make them last once canned or packed, that is what makes them less nutritive, not healthy at all and instead of helping reduce weight, or lower cholesterol or regulate blood sugar level the impact is quite the opposite!
But Nuts-Nuts has taken all that in account and that is why we developed our exclusive DRY roasting process with no oil, at the proper temperature for an exact amount of time without adding preservatives or any kind of oil. And on top of that we roast everyday, small batches so what you buy is always fresh!
That is what makes our nuts different and HEALTHY! Come and try them. We invite you to squezze or rub any of our roasted nuts and find any oil trace on your hand!
