Ivan Schiffer's health food concept
In the mountains of the Easter Himalayas, walnuts are growing wild as
part of natural forest ecosystems. Ethnic communities are harvesting
the nuts and make a living of this excellent product. The nuts are entirely
free of pesticides.
There are 2 varieties of walnuts: the above picture shows the "soft"
walnut, which is easy to crack and holds a large nut. The wild and original
variety is very hard and holds only small nuts, but their taste is extraordinary.
We are using the wild nuts for cold pressed walnut oil.

These natural landscapes are the origin of our walnuts

There are 2 qualities of walnuts available:
on the left hand is the soft shelled walnut usually traded either as
whole nut or opened and offered as half nut;
on the right hand is the original wild walnut, hard shelled, difficult
to break, but with an extraordinary fine aroma; these nuts are used
for our cold pressed walnut oil and are excellent for cooking and baking
Both nuts are also traded de-shelled:
on the left side the soft shelled walnut; specification: 1st grade:
colour yellow-brown; cut: 90% cut in half, 10% quarter cuts; (another
1st grade product are white-yellow nuts cut in half);
on the right side are the seeds of the wild walnuts; they are difficult
to remove and can only be harvested in small broken bits: extra tasty!
The packaging is half kg vacuum sealed.
