Tips & Notes
Researchers are convinced about the nutritional benefits of walnuts when consumed in whole form, including the skin. Approximately 90 percent of the phenols in walnuts are found in the skin, including key phenolic acids, tannins and flavonoids.
Some websites will encourage you to remove the whitish, sometimes waxy, sometimes flaky, outermost part of shelled walnuts. There can be slight bitterness to this skin, and that’s often the reason that websites give for removing it. However, don’t do it.
Walnuts not only taste great but are a rich source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of those hard to find omega-3 fatty acids.
Common thoughts about type 2 diabetes are as a problem primarily related to blood sugar control and insulin metabolism. People diagnosed with type 2 diabetes typically have health problems in other related systems, and are at special risk for cardiovascular problems.
An important part of the goal in designing a diet plan for persons with type 2 diabetes is lowering the risk of future cardiovascular problems. In this context, consumption of walnuts is establishing a more and more impressive research track record.
