InquilineKea Posted April 20 Report Share Posted April 20 (edited) One source says they're the healthiest nut https://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2022/4/walnuts-extend-your-life But I just ate a bag of walnuts today and noticed the HUGE difference between unexpired nuts and expired nuts. The expired nuts do not taste terrible - you have to compare them side by side to see the difference and it is huge They are heavy in PUFAs, which makes them unusually prone to oxidation (of all the fatty acids, PUFAs have the highest benefits *and* highest harms) https://photos.app.goo.gl/G8KUvDyTLfWJPbpv6 Quote WHERE TO STORE WALNUTS When you bring walnuts (shelled or in-shell) home from the store, the best place to store them is in your refrigerator or freezer, depending on when you’re going to use them. If you’re going to use the walnuts right away, place them in your refrigerator. If you’ll be storing them for a month or longer, store them in your freezer. HOW TO STORE WALNUTS If you buy walnuts in sealed packaging, you can store the walnuts in their original packaging in the refrigerator or freezer. Once you open the bag, transfer the walnuts to an airtight container to maintain freshness and then place them back in the refrigerator or freezer. If you buy bulk walnuts, either in-shell or shelled, place the walnuts in an airtight container for long-term cold storage. Quote Several nuts are among the dietary plants with the highest content of total antioxidants. Of the tree nuts, walnuts, pecans and chestnuts have the highest contents of antioxidants. Walnuts contain more than 20 mmol antioxidants per 100 g, mostly in the walnut pellicles. Peanuts (a legume) also contribute significantly to dietary intake of antioxidants. These data are in accordance with our present extended analysis of an earlier report on nut intake and death attributed to various diseases in the Iowa Women's Health Study. We observed that the hazard ratio for total death rates showed a U-shaped association with nut/peanut butter consumption. Hazard ratio was 0.89 (CI = 0.81-0.97) and 0.81 (CI = 0.75-0.88) for nut/peanut butter intake once per week and 1-4 times per week, respectively Edited April 20 by InquilineKea Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
