What is Korean pine and why its seeds are so valuable

Yes, there are many different species of pine, and they grow all over the world. But not all of them are suitable for food and good for health. A common species that produces delicious cones with sweet kernels is Siberian pine. But its kernels are much smaller than those of the Korean pine. In comparison, the first one has a nut of 10 mm in length and 5-7 mm in width, but the second one has these parameters twice as much.

And the peeled Korean pine kernels themselves are sweeter, twice as rich in trace elements and vitamins. The only thing that always remains unchanged is the oil content. Cedar nuts contain over 60% of fats, and it does not matter what tree it was picked from.

Storage Features

Peeled pine nut kernels are two to three times more expensive than kernels in the shell. But the thing is that it is almost impossible to peel the kernels yourself. If the sunflower seeds can be broken with fingers or chewed with teeth, then in the case of pine nuts there is a risk to lose your teeth.

But the shelf life and storage conditions of peeled kernels are much more demanding than those of unpeeled ones.

We follow all specifications for harvesting, cleaning and transporting pine nuts:

  • Cleaning is done mechanically, the tough shells and scales are peeled with peeling machines.
  • Cedar kernels and only. We monitor the quality of our product, so the content of residual debris after the processing of nuts is minimized.
  • The finished product is stored in a cool, darkened place. Moisture ingress is excluded. Cedar kernels are afraid of high humidity, and we understand it.
  • Transportation only in airtight packages.

The benefits of pine nuts

Korean pine seeds are nicknamed pignoli in the West and are consumed as a healthy source of protein. Just one handful of peeled kernels a few times a week and you'll replenish your vitamin C, K, and B levels in no time at all.

  • Korean pine grows on mountain peaks in the Far East and in the taiga part of Russia. The valuable cones are harvested only in ecologically clean places of our country.
  • The cones help relieve earache, are useful for nosebleeds, and are recommended for women during breastfeeding. Regular consumption of pine nut kernels is believed to improve the flow of milk.
  • The oil of the kernels consists of about 11.5% pinolenic acid (an unusual fatty acid), which is often used as a weight loss aid.
  • Pine nuts have a sweet taste, but that doesn't stop them from being used to make soups, porridges, sauces, fish, vegetable and meat dishes, salads, desserts and even coffee drinks.
  • Purified kernels help with symptoms of colds such as coughs, runny noses, and sore throats.
