Walnut Community

Welcome to our new blog where we’ll be detailing our favorite products on supermarket shelves that are made with walnuts! Each month, we’ll feature food and beverage items that use walnuts to impart flavor, texture and healthful nutrients. According to a 2019 Consumer Survey, food trends are shifting. Consumers are looking for products that tick both the healthful and indulgent boxes. In fact, 94% of consumers are looking for creative ways to explore a more balanced diet. Consumers believe walnuts can be used across a wide variety of usage occasions and 73% surveyed said they would purchase a product with walnuts. These learnings make walnuts an ideal ingredient for food professionals looking to deliver new creative products without sacrificing flavor, while adding texture or nutrition. If you make a product with walnuts, email us and we may feature it in a future post. This month, we’ve got a great group of diverse products that showcase walnuts’ versatility.

Pancake & Muffin Mix – Fearless Keto

A low-carb, healthy way to enjoy pancakes and muffins every morning? Sign us up! This new product from Fearless Keto uses California walnut flour as its base to provide flavor, texture and a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids to every pancake and muffin. The product targets Keto diet followers, but we found that non-keto followers loved them just as much! The mix is available in chocolate, vanilla, maple and banana flavors.

Collagen Protein Oats Blueberry Walnut – Purely Elizabeth

This new product from Purely Elizabeth features a nutritious backbone of oats, grass-fed collagen, quinoa, amaranth, flax, chia and our favorite ingredient – walnuts! And, we’re not talking just a couple of walnuts. This collagen protein oat cup features a heart-healthy* dose of walnuts, which delivers a great texture and flavor to the product. Blueberries complement walnuts in the flavor profile and provide the perfect balance of sweet, tart and nutty.

Amys Kitchen - California Walnut Burgers

California Veggie Burger – Amy’s

Meat-alternative burgers are on trend with today’s consumers, but truly clean label plant-based alternatives can be difficult to find. Our favorite is Amy’s California Veggie Burger, which uses a blend of bulgur, mushrooms, veggies and toasted walnuts to impart the perfect texture and savory flavor profile. Find this product in the freezer case of supermarkets throughout the United States.

Honey Yogurt with Dried Figs and Walnuts – Siggi’s

The concept of the Simple Sides line from Siggi’s is fairly straightforward: provide consumers with a sidecar of flavorful and nutritious add-ins to the company’s line of yogurts. However, the simplicity stops at the concept, and the complexity comes to the forefront with the marriage of walnuts, dried figs and honey in a 2% strained low-fat yogurt.
