Pine Nuts Certified Organic 8 oz. by NOW Foods

Pine Nuts Certified Organic 8 oz.

Pine Nuts, Certified Organic - 8oz
Item catalog number: 7016

Many people are surprised to find that pine trees actually produce an edible nut that’s not only tasty, but high in nutritive value as well. In fact, Pine Nuts have been widely consumed since prehistoric times, and have enjoyed extensive culinary use in many different cultures. As with most nuts, Pine Nuts are a good source of protein, and they also contain thiamin (vitamin B1) and magnesium. Similar in size to sunflower seeds, NOW Real Food™ Pine Nuts are an excellent snack food, but they really shine when added to salads and other vegetable dishes, or as a hearty addition to home-baked bread. Once you try them we’re sure you’ll be “pining” for more! This product has been packed using NOW Real Food’s special technology to maximize freshness. Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food™ has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We’re independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.

NOW's Mission

The NOW mission is: To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods. In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW

In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
