Walnuts

Walnuts

SO much better than floor nuts | $0.50 (0.60oz)

The Romans called walnuts Juglans regia, “Jupiter’s royal acorn.” Walnuts have been discovered in prehistoric deposits in Europe dating from the Iron Age. Remains of husked, well-preserved, unbroken walnuts were unearthed in the ruins of Pompeii, the ill-fated city instantly petrified in the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

Interest in walnuts and health started in the 16th and 17th centuries. Eating walnuts was thought to boost the intellect and soothe emotions because of its striking resemblance to the brain and heart, depending on the way the walnuts were cracked. Today, cutting edge health research is proving many of these beliefs are true!

Walnuts are identified as one of 14 “SuperFoods” because of their high omega-3 content, a distinction that makes walnuts unique among nuts.

Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts

Little nut, BIG flavor | $0.50 (0.75oz)

A lovely, delicately-flavored nut, the hazelnut is also known as the filbert. The Greek physician Dioscorides emphasized the properties of the filbert: "It cures chronic coughing if pounded filbert is eaten with honey. Cooked filbert mixed with black pepper cures the cold. If the ointment produced by mashing burnt filbert shells in suet is smeared on the head where hair does not grow due to normal baldness or to some disease, hair will come again."

Well, we’re not making any promises. But they certainly are delicious!

Almonds

Almonds

Edible fertility charm! | $0.60 (0.80oz)

We at Mojamix are particularly fond of almonds—and good thing, since they’re the biggest nut crop of the state of California! During Roman times, almonds were considered a fertility charm, and newlyweds would be showered with almonds during weddings. In Ayurvedic thought, the almond is considered to induce a high intellectual level and longevity. So not only are they good in your dining room, but they bring their benefits to the bedroom AND the office. Who can beat that?

Brazil Nuts

Brazil Nuts

An irresistible taste of the Amazon | $0.60 (0.80oz)

One of our few non-local ingredients, brazil nuts lend an exotic taste to any cereal mix. Because Brazil nut trees produce fruit almost exclusively in pristine rainforests, supporting brazil nut production means helping to preserve these important ecosystems. The trees grow very slowly, taking as long as 10 to 30 years before producing nuts, and they require a specific species of bee to pollinate the flowers. Brazil nuts are especially rich in selenium, a powerful antioxidant.

Cashew Nuts

Cashew Nuts

Edible commas to help you slow down and enjoy the moment | $0.80 (0.80oz)

Cashews have a velvety, rich texture that seems to say, “I’m fattening!” Not so.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid content is oleic acid, the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health, even in individuals with diabetes. Furthermore, studies show that increased cashew consumption can lead to weight loss! Cashews are a very good source of monounsaturated fats and copper, and a good source of magnesium and phosphorus.

Coconut Chips

Coconut Chips

Rich and tropical. Coconut, take me away! | $0.30 (0.50oz)

Besides making a delicious compliment to fruits and grains, coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a "functional food" because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life."

Pistachios

Pistachios

Always smiling. What are they so happy about? | $0.90 (0.50oz)
