We’re Nuts is a small family business which incorporates over 40 years of trading with the public through our parent Company Triple K Enterprises which manufactures ” “Nature Flake TM “ for show and domestic dogs and cats.
Eight years ago we commenced trading at farmers markets specializing in roasted and raw nuts, together with dried fruits. The response from you, the most important people in our business, the consumer, has been tremendous. We would like to thank you all and trust you will continue to support us. Our endeavor is to deliver to you a fresh and hygienically packaged product. By roasting our nuts in small quantities weekly, we are able to do this. Our raw products are kept fresh in vacuum packaged bags; this ensures a long shelf life. Buying from us you are assured of purchasing a product that has been roasted and packed for no longer than ten days, the careful rotation of stock ensures this. In most cases you are buying a product that has only been packed in the last four days. We now offer you the opportunity to purchase all our products online.
Once shunned as a high fat, high kilojoules snack, nuts are now staking claim to a reputation as health food for the heart. The latest evidence comes from the physicians' Health Study, a long term analysis of the diet, health and exercise habits of 22,000 doctors. Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that men who ate a couple of handfuls of nuts (about 50gr) each week had a 47% lower risk of sudden death from Cardiac Arrest than those who ate nuts less often.
Why are nuts so healthy?
Researchers say it may have something to do with the fact that they’re high in unsaturated fats, magnesium and vitamin E. Munching nuts may protect against dementia. In a recent study from the Rush Institute in Chicago, scientists found that people who ate a diet rich in Vitamin E were less likely to develop Alzheimer's.
