Where walnuts come from:
Walnuts come from trees, to start. Once upon a time, these grew in a wide swath across Asia – all the way to China, where half of the world’s walnut production happens. But they also found their way to Europe and, later, California, by way of Spanish missionaries. Commercial production began in the 1800s. Today the United States is the world’s number two producer behind only China. California dominates with 99 percent of the domestic crop.
What they’re made of:
Walnuts are big. They look robust because they are. The rounded shell is initially enclosed in a green husk. The epic task of cracking this shell reveals the kernel, which looks a bit like a brain. It may not be the most attractive thing, true, but is vastly improved as a creamy walnut milk. And it’s top nutritional value for its slightly off looks.
Walnuts, minus shells, are 65 percent fat, 15 percent protein, and 14 percent carbohydrate. “That’s a lot of fat.” True… but we’ve learned, as a society, that not all fat is bad. Greasy potato chips are one thing. But there are healthy fats, like Omega 3, of which walnuts are one of the very best sources. Elmhurst’s HydroRelease™ method captures 1400mg ALA Omega 3 in each glass.
