Walnuts are high in protein, calcium and potassium. In addition, they also fit into a cholesterol-lowering diet, because they contain a lot of unsaturated fats. They also contain a lot of antioxidants that are good for protecting the body against diseases. Antioxidants is a collective name for vitamins E and C, beta-carotene, the body’s own glutathione, the trace elements selenium and zinc and bioactive substances, such as flavonoids from fruit and vegetables.

Most walnuts can be found in America, France and China. But walnuts also grow in the Netherlands, in many gardens there is a walnut tree.

Walnuts are widely eaten. They are popular in nut mixes, desserts and, for example, walnut pesto.

Royal nut
uring the Byzantine era, the walnut was also known by the name “royal nut”. An article on walnut tree cultivation in Spain is included in Ibn al-‘Awwam‘s 12th-century Book on Agriculture. The walnut was originally known as the Welsh nut, i.e., it came through France and/or Italy to Germanic speakers (German Walnuss, Dutch okkernoot or walnoot, Danish valnød, Swedish valnöt). In Polish orzechy włoskie translates to “Italian nuts” (włoskie being the adjectival form of włochy (“Italy”)). (Wikipedia)
