Organic Chestnuts 250g Chestnuts, in contrast to most other nuts, contain only small quantities of fat and oil and are very high in complex carbohydrates. They have a quite remarkable nutritional composition that sets them apart from all other nuts and makes them an outstanding food source which can be a dietary staple. Chestnuts are low GI, high in protein, very low in fat, and are cholesterol free. They contain reasonable quantities of vitamin C and potassium, but have very low sodium levels and are gluten free.
Chestnuts should be treated more like vegetables and fruits than nuts when it comes to their storage. Once at home, pack and keep in cold storage in the refrigerator where they remain fresh for up to a week. Our farmer says "The sooner you use them, the fresher they will be"
