Pine nuts are called several types of edible pine seeds. In our country it is the seeds of Siberian pine, an evergreen plant that reaches 44 meters in height, that are popular. Surprisingly, in scientific circles it is not customary to call these kernels in a dense shell a nut.  The name we are accustomed to is used in everyday life and in cooking.

And pine nuts are considered not only a tasty delicacy gathered in Siberia and the Far East, but also a useful product.

We collect and harvest Siberian and Korean pine seeds. We work for export - our product is certified, registered and ready to ship (we can supply large volumes, wholesale). Our task is to sell only quality product in compliance with all conditions of processing and storage of pine seeds, in accordance with GOST.

What is the difference between Siberian and Korean pine kernels

The first and most important difference between the seeds is their size. Korean cedar is fruitful, it has large cones with large seeds that reach 14 mm in height and 10 mm in width. Siberian pine gives smaller seeds, their length is about 10 mm and width 5-8 mm. And they differ in the number of seeds in the cones themselves when they are harvested. Korean pine is considered "royal" among its fellows, so its fruits are more expensive.

The benefits of pine nuts

Yes, originally the peeled kernels were used in cooking, but later they were also appreciated in medicine and in the preparation of cosmetic products.

Buying pine nuts in raw form, you can use the kernels for baking, salads, add them to porridges and sauces, and the hard brown shell to make infusions and balsams.

So what are the benefits:

  • A treasure chest of vitamins (group B, E, K).
  • A treasure trove of minerals (manganese, phosphorus, copper, boron, vanadium, cobalt, magnesium, zinc, iron). And this is not a complete list. In total, there are 18 types of minerals and trace elements.
  • A handful of nuts several times a week has a positive effect on the heart and blood vessels, the nervous system, the liver (especially its main function - hematopoiesis).
  • Pine nuts help restore visual acuity and strengthen the immune system.
  • Prevention of diseases of the digestive system, atherosclerosis, diabetes and anemia.

Modern medicine includes pine nuts in many pharmaceutical preparations, including for the prevention and treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular system.

We care about nature

Siberian and Korean pines begin to bear abundant fruit after 60-80 years. Just imagine how far the tree goes to give the most useful product.

We take care of nature and collect cedar cones with care. Our company never damages the pine itself (without cutting it down). Collecting cones does not harm the tree because they easily fall off the branches themselves when ripe.

The harvest is made in late summer-early fall in a dense pine forest, making sure to respect the row, leaving the fruit-bearing trees with cones for the local animals.

The harvest is necessarily cleaned of scales and plates with a special peeling machine (aka mill). Since the harvesting takes place already in the fall, the shells may be a little wet - it is important to dry them before packing. During drying, the nuts must be sorted - by size, removing too small, as well as removing damaged and moldy kernels.

We carefully store pine nuts in dry and well-ventilated rooms, pack them carefully in airtight containers and send them anywhere in the world.
