So, what is castanhas?

Castanhas, also known as chestnuts, are a delicious and versatile ingredient that can add depth and nuttiness to a wide variety of dishes. These edible nuts are typically harvested in the fall and have a smooth, shiny brown exterior that encases a sweet, starchy flesh inside. With a delicate, earthy flavor that pairs well with both sweet and savory ingredients, castanhas can be roasted, boiled, or mashed and used in everything from soups and stews to pies and pastries. Not only do they add delicious flavor and texture to dishes, but they also provide a healthy source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like castanhas?

We've built a database of 49359 ingredients (and growing), classified as "vegan", "non-vegan", or "maybe vegan".
