Nocciola Piemonte I.G.P.

All our production carries the certification: ‘Nocciola Piemontese IGP’ (Protected Geographic Area).
The characteristics of our land – the Langhe (the Langhe is a hilly area in southern Piemonte) - and its climate, together with many years of experience have combined to develop a product of the highest quality and is identified as the Nocciola Tonda Gentile delle Langhe (the Noble Round Hazelnut of the Langhe) – universally recognized as the best hazelnut in the world.
Its unique and incomparable organoleptic properties make it highly appreciated and in demand by dessert and sweet makers because:

    • It has intense and lingering aroma (after being lightly toasted)
    • It has long shelf life
    • Of its spherical shape
    • It is easily ‘peelable’
    • It has excellent yield
    • It has high energy value

Therapeutic and nutritional properties

Recent research has shown that a regular consumption of hazelnuts can lead to lower blood cholesterol levels and hence assist in protecting against cardiovascular disease. The claimed anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties are due to the phytosterol and mineral salt content.
Aesthetic properties: hazelnut oil, either on its own or mixed with other aromatic oils is excellent for use in massage. It gives tone and elasticity to the skin, helping to keep is smooth and is also good for scar tissue. Excellent as a moisturiser on damp skin after bathing or showering.
