Culinary Versatility

California walnuts are light in color and their mild aroma and flavor distinguishes them from those of other growing regions. Their soft texture and ability to work well in a variety of cuisines makes them an all-rounder suitable for countless applications in food manufacturing, gastronomy or retail.

Walnuts are a nutrient-rich “power food” that adds value to your offerings. They also help you to meet consumer demands for simple, real food ingredients that are healthy on their own and add health benefits to other products. As ingredients, California walnuts can be used almost universally regardless of the main flavor being sweet, salty, fruity, fresh or savory.
