Chestnuts are a
delicious and healthy food! They are high in carbohydrates (45%) and
very low in fat (2-3%), while other nuts are over 50% in fat. Chestnuts
are like a "grain that grows on a tree" and are similar nutritionally
to wheat and brown rice. Chestnuts contain 6-8% high quality protein and
no cholesterol. Low fat, high carbohydrate diets are recommended by the
American Heart and Cancer Associations.
Chestnuts are Gluten-Free!
