Pine Nuts – Know your Sources

picture 25You may remember us posting about pine nuts back in July and the recent “pine mouth” discovery certain varieties of nuts from Asia are causing  This recent article in The Washington Post mentions pine mouth and drives home the importance of eating locally and knowing where your food is sourced from.

Healthy Living does not order pine nuts from Asia, and is strongly committed to the quality of food we put on our shelves.  Our pine nuts come from Spain, and we’re currently working with farmers in the United States and hope to have their products on our shelves by January.

So, with the holidays happening right now, don’t be afraid to use pine nuts in your festive dishes!
