information: Pine nuts are the edible seeds of pine trees. They are small, soft and creamy in texture. Also known as pinon, pinolos, and pignole. Pine nut kernels are excellent in stir-fries, tossed in a salad or in a stuffing. A light roasting brings out their natural rich flavour and creates a crispy texture. Eaten raw the nuts have a creamy soft texture. Pine nuts are a favourite ingredient in pesto.
Pine nuts are rich in vitamin E, with 100 g, or 3.5 oz., of pine nuts providing over 9 mg of this vitamin. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects the cells from free radicals that can damage them. This vitamin may also help lower risk of heart disease, suggest experts from the University of Maryland. Pine nuts also contain significant amounts of B-complex vitamins, especially thiamin, or vitamin B1, niacin, or vitamin B3, and folate. B-complex vitamins help you maintain healthy skin, good vision and a properly functioning metabolism and nervous system.
