QUALITY AUSTRALIAN WALNUTS
Fresh Australian walnuts are harvested in Autumn. They taste sweet and crunchy and are high in protein, vitamins and minerals.
What to look for…….
Walnuts in shells must be dry, practically clean, bright and free from splits, injury by discoloration, and free from damage caused by broken shells, perforated shells, adhering hulls or other means.
Kernels must be well dried, free from decay, dark discoloration, rancidity, and free from damage caused by mould, shrivelling, insects or other means.
The Australian Walnut Industry uses nut sizes based on metric measure of millimetres (mm) as the industry standard and the ONLY accepted method of nut sizing.
This method of measure is used in other countries including Europe.
There are three categories:
- Under 32 mm
- Between 32 and 36 mm
- Over 36 mm
The sizing listed on the label/packaging must reflect the size of nuts, in mm, within the bag.
The mm measurement allows producers to satisfy customer requirements by:
- Adopting standardized sizes for Australian walnuts.
- Using a clearly defined measure based on the diameter of nuts.
- Providing greater flexibility in grouping of nut sizes.
Remove nuts from bags and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Nuts can be refrigerated for up to 4 months and frozen for up to 6 months. Remember, bringing nuts back to room temperature before eating can help them taste nuttier.
