Nuts for Life

Nuts for Life brand logoNuts for Life is a collective nutrition communications/ education initiative by the Australian Tree Nut Industry (Australian tree nut growers as well as nut importers, processors and packers). It is funded through voluntary contributions from the Australian Tree Nut Industry, as well as government matched funds for R&D activities through Horticulture Innovation Australia, and has been in operation since 2003.


Tree nut varieties enjoyed in Australia include Almond, Brazil

Chestnut, Hazelnut, Macadamia, Pistachio and Walnut.


The science is clear: Nuts are a vital part of a healthy diet and scientific research is proving why. Nuts contain a unique combination of healthy fats plus a range of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals which helps nuts reduce heart disease and Type 2 diabetes risk, lower cholesterol and manage weight.


To be more specific, research has shown that a handful of nuts (at least 30 grams) most days of the week can significantly reduce the risk of developing heart disease by 30-50% and reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 13-27%.


Regular nut consumption also reduces mortality by 20% meaning nut eaters live longer.


Finally, research has shown that nut consumption is associated with a lower BMI, and those who eat nuts are less likely to gain weight over time.


But not everyone knows: Our research indicates that 95% of Australians fail to eat a handful of nuts every day. Results from the latest Australian Health Survey found we are consuming an average of 6 grams a day, far short of the recommended 30 gram serving size.


Many people still don’t regard nuts as an everyday food, with the number one reason being their concern about nuts’ fat content and their potential to cause weight gain. But – the science is clear - eating a handful of nuts each day does not cause weight gain and if eaten as part of a healthy diet will help promote weight loss.


So, enjoy a healthy handful today.
