So, what is chilean hazel?

Chilean hazel, also known as Gevuina avellana, is a delicious and nutritious food ingredient that is native to Chile. The small, oval-shaped nuts are encased in a hard, woody shell that needs to be cracked open before eating. Chilean hazels are rich in healthy fats, protein, dietary fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals, making them an excellent addition to any diet. They have a distinct buttery flavor and creamy texture that works well in both sweet and savory dishes, from baked goods to sauces and spreads. These flavorful nuts are also sustainably grown and harvested, making them an eco-friendly choice for conscious foodies.
