Walnuts are an excellent ingredient in baked goods – both sweet and savory. Their unique aroma and creamy flavor makes them a great addition to everyday breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, pie crusts or fillings and other baked products both savory and sweet. Fresh walnuts can be processed easily and quickly and provide customers with increased perceived value.
They can also be ground or finely chopped as a flavor-rich addition to traditional offerings. Additionally, they are a perfect ingredient for gluten-free or low-carb products being demanded by today’s consumers. Last but not least, walnut pieces add amazing texture and halves are a perfect crunchy addition or can be used as premium decoration.
