The History of Baklava

Are Walnuts Healthy?
Walnuts Clinical Scientific Update: Mounting scientific research shows health benefits of walnuts, especially heart-healthy omega-3s.

Walnuts are the healthy nut and go beyond lowering cholesterol
A new clinical study from the University of Barcelona shows that substituting walnuts for monounsaturated fat in a Mediterranean diet improves, and even restores, endothelial function (the property of arteries to dilate in order to meet an increased demand of blood). Walnuts also reduce harmful cell adhesion molecules which are associated with atherosclerosis, commonly known as hardening of the arteries. These dual effects enhance the circulatory system, therefore aiding in the prevention of heart disease. According to the researchers, walnuts are the first whole food to show such cardiovascular benefits. The study is published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.

FDA allows health claim for walnuts
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has affirmed the health claim, "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces per day of walnuts, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease." This FDA decision comes in response to a petition filed by the California Walnut Commission, which highlights a body of international scientific research substantiating the specific benefit of consuming walnuts as part of a heart healthy diet in reducing the risk of heart disease. The body of evidence suggests that the nutritional composition of walnuts contribute to these heart health benefits.

Is Baklava Healthy? Can it be guilt free?
Since Walnuts contain "the GOOD fat", they can be part of a guilt free dessert. Walnuts are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, containing more of this desirable ingredient than other nuts. Click here for a comparison chart.
