About Hazelnut flour

Wikipedia Article About Hazelnut flour on Wikipedia

One of the reasons for the nutritional and culinary success of the Hazelnut lies in its nutritional composition. The flesh of a typical nut includes 16% protein and 62% unsaturated oil. In addition it contains significant levels of thiamine and niacin and high levels of calcium, phosphorus and potassium. Additionally, for those persons who need to restrict carbohydrates, ¼ l. of hazelnut flour has 20 g of carbohydrates, 12 g fibre, for less than 10 net carbohydrates. Hazelnut flour is normally produced by grinding the hazelnut solids remaining after hazelnut oil extraction. This leaves the flour relatively dry.
