Nuts contain many trace elements (for example, iron, copper, cobalt), antioxidants, unsaturated fatty acids, protein, more than 20 essential amino acids, as well as B vitamins, vitamins C, PP.

They can be used to prepare sauces and salads, as a component of sandwiches and soups.

Since nuts contain a high percentage of fat, they go rancid rather quickly in the heat. You can store them at room temperature for up to a month. But after that, be sure to transfer the nuts to an airtight container and refrigerate. They will be stored in the main chamber for 6 months, in the freezer for a year.
To “freshen up” any nuts before eating (or cooking with them), roast them on a baking sheet in the oven at 180° C for 10 minutes, or place the nuts in a small bowl and reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
