Fun Facts

Where hazelnuts come from:

Hazelnuts grow on the hazel, or filbert, tree. Originally they were cultivated in the Mediterranean region, Turkey, and modern Iran, but were also consumed by the prehistoric hunter-gathers of Northern Europe. The Classical cultures of Greece and Rome helped spread and commercialize hazelnuts. Today, more than half of the world’s supply is produced in Turkey. There are, however, significant industries in other countries, including the United States. Domestically, Oregon accounts for almost all production. This is where we source ours to make Milked Hazelnuts™.

What they’re made of:

Hazelnuts initially take the form of a cob, which consists of a husk, shell, and kernel. The nut falls from the husk to the the ground when ripe. Then the harvesting happens. Opening the shell reveals the edible seed, which we consume as a hazelnut (or, in our case, use to make hazelnut milk). The nut is about 60 percent fat (mostly unsaturated), 17 percent carbohydrate, and 15 percent protein.

The very credible nutrition of the hazelnut is, in some ways, a vehicle for its flavor. With so many confectionary and snack applications (i.e. hazelnut spread), it made almost too much sense to make a creamy hazelnut milk for smoothies, iced coffee, cereal, or drinking right from the glass.

Fast facts:

  • Archaeologists have found large quantities of hazelnut shells at Northern European sites as old as 10,000 years.
  • The first hazelnut tree in Oregon is said to have been planted in 1858. Today the hazelnut – commonly called the filbert – is the official state nut.
  • Hazelnut trees are relatively small and shrub-like. They do well in full sun.
  • In certain Celtic cultures, hazelnuts were a symbol of wisdom, said to have prophetic properties.
