Today the health-conscious are lapping up plant-based foods as they know it’s a healthy way of eating. And, walnuts are definitely figuring in their list of healthy plant-based foods. After all, walnuts are nutrient powerhouses comprising polyunsaturated fat (13g/18g), plant-based protein (4g/28g), fibre (2g/28g) and omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). In fact, walnuts are the only tree nut to provide an excellent source of ALA – the plant-based form of Omega-3. In 28 grams (12-14 halves; ¼ cup) there are 2.5 grams of ALA which is five times more than the amount found in the next highest nut!

Going by the treasure trove of nutrients walnuts pack in, it’s not really surprising that they are becoming an integral part of hotel and restaurant menus. Hoteliers and restaurateurs are opting for walnuts to add flavour, crunch and depth to every course from savoury appetisers, to hearty entrées and desserts.

Significance of Probiotics in Dairy Products

Probiotics are defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the World Health Organization as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”. As per the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the concentration of live probiotic bacteria required in foods to achieve the intended health benefits is approximately 108 CFU/g at the time of consumption. Probiotic microorganisms, including bacteria and yeasts, are attracting interest due to their promising physiological effects and the value they add to probiotic-containing food products. These bacteria have a long history of safe use in food. In recent years, there is an upsurge in interest in these bacterial species as research is beginning to unravel the many possible health benefits associated with them.
