Crunchy, yet butter textured, pleasantly sweet and delicious when lightly toasted! Pine nuts are small edible seeds of the cone from a pine tree. Pine kernels are a splendid source of plant derived nutrients and offer essential minerals, vitamins and "heart friendly" monounsaturated fatty acids that help benefit in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood. They are especially rich in monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid (18:1 undifferentiated fat) that helps to lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good cholesterol" in the blood. They are gluten-free tree nuts, and therefore, are a popular ingredient in the preparation of gluten-free food formulas. Such formula preparations can be a healthy alternative in people with wheat food allergy and celiac disease.
