Cedarnuts - A Nature's Real Treasure
For centuries native Siberians have always appreciated the Siberian cedar tree (pinus sibirica) as a source of valuable wood, natural remedies and tasty, nutritious kernels in the pine cones of the tree.
Cedar nuts (also called Siberian pine nuts) contain about 55% valuable unsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid as well as the rare pinol-/pinolenic acid. They are rich in tocopherols (vitamin E) as powerful antioxidants and high-quality proteins (about 17%). Furthermore, cedar nuts contain many minerals (most notably magnesium, potassium, phosphorus), trace elements (copper, zinc, manganese), vitamins (K and B) and flavonoids.
More than 200 years ago, the German natural scientist Peter Simon Pallas wrote about the healing effects of cedar nuts. They reduce fatigue, boost energy, rejuvenate the body and increase potency.
Cedar nuts taste like pine nuts, but slightly sweeter. Our cedar nuts are not heat- treated in contrast to almost all other pine nuts available in shops.
Why we love Cedar Nuts
The Siberian cedar, is a real treasure of Siberian nature, forming vast areas of pristine forests throughout Northern Russia. These huge, magnificent trees typically reach 40 meters tall. The trees grow slowly and the first nut-bearing cones only appear once the trees are about 30 years old. Siberian pines are some of the longest-living trees ranging from 300 to 800 years old!
Throughout its long life span, the evergreen cedar captures the rays of cosmic light energy and stores it in its millions of needles. Already thousands of years ago Siberian people appreciated the properties of the cedar tree, which they called "the Eternal". They used the brushwood to prepare a healthy drink, the resin for healing wounds and ulcers, and the cedar nut and its oil were taken to help cure many diseases and overvcome the long, severe winters of Siberia.
Nowaday scientists in Russia and around the world have been exploring the properties of the cedar nuts and its oil. Research showed clear effects on gastritis, heartburn and dysplasia (cancer prestages) in stomach and esophagus, improved gall bladder function, cholesterol-lowering effects and positive impact on blood sugar levels.
Siberian pine nuts and oil are also beneficial for the care and regeneration of the skin, the oil is used in skin diseases such as eczema.
SamaraNatura Cedar Nuts
Virtually all pine kernels sold in the shops are heat-treated to preserve them. Our cedar nuts from Mongolia are raw and a bit sweeter and lighter and fantastic just about any way you choose to use them. We recommend to keep them refrigerated.
Cedar nuts taste great as a snack by its own. You can add them to trail mixes with goji berries and cacao nibs or use them on your salads, in mayonnaises, creams and milks. They will add a little elegance and sophistication to your cuisine.
