Bob's Red Mill Hazelnut Meal is ground from whole Oregon hazelnuts, or filberts. Hazelnuts are often overlooked for their nutritional value, but these healthy nuts provide a good amount of vitamin E and a healthy serving of monounsaturated fats in each 1/4 cup serving. Not only do hazelnuts have a healthy boost of protein, they are also very low in carbohydrates and naturally gluten free.
Did you know that adding hazelnut meal to your baking and cooking can bring the health benefits of hazelnuts to your diet, as well as cutting back on carbohydrate consumption? Replacing 30% of the flour in your baking with hazelnut meal will add wonderful texture and flavor while reducing the total carbohydrates. This makes it perfect for those following a low carbohydrate or paleo diet. Hazelnut meal is produced in our gluten free facility, making it an ideal addition to a gluten free diet.
In addition to low carbohydrate baking, hazelnut meal is wonderful for use in pastries, pie crusts, cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads. Hazelnut meal will bring a rich, buttery flavor to your baking while adding an enticing aroma that can only come from high quality hazelnuts. Hazelnut meal can be used in savory applications, as well. Use hazelnut meal in place of bread crumbs in meatballs, or as a coating for chicken and fish.
