Benefits and Uses of Siberian Cedar Pine Nuts
Of the over 20 pine tree species in the world which produces pine nuts, Siberian cedar nut is considered as the most nutritious. Cedar nut has high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acids. The pinolenic acid, which is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, is present only in pine nuts and pine oil. Cedar nut also has high content of amino acids, especially argenine. Nut protein is easy to digest. Cedar nuts contain Vitamin E, B1, B2, B3, A and D. 100g of cedar nuts is sufficient to meet an adult's daily need for amino acids, as well as copper, cobalt, manganese, and zinc.
The nuts are very good when raw, but also can be roasted in the nut roasting machine. Many variants are known for preparing dishes using cedar nut kernels. Cedar nuts contain about 60% oil, they are therefore pressed by oil press machine to obtain cedar nut oil. Cedar nuts can also be used to produce cedar cream and milk. Cedar nut cream is twice as rich as dairy cream in fat content. Cedar nut, oil, cream and milk have been used since the old days for the treatment against various diseases.
- Pine nuts are one of the calorie-rich edible nuts. 100 g of dry-kernels provide 673 calories. Additionally, they comprise of numerous health promoting phyto-chemicals, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
- Their high caloric content chiefly comes from fats. Indeed, the nuts are especially rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid (18:1 undifferentiated fat) that helps to lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good-cholesterol" in the blood. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet which contain good amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, helps to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favoring healthy blood lipid profile.
- Pine or cedar nuts contain essential fatty acid (omega-6 fat), pinolenic acid. Recent research has shown its potential use in weight loss by curbing appetite. Pinolenic acid triggers the release of hunger-suppressant enzymes cholecystokinin and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the gut. In addition, pinolenic acid has thought to have LDL-lowering properties by enhancing hepatic LDL uptake.
- Likewise in almonds, pines too are an excellent source of vitamin E; contain about 9.33 mg per 100 g (about 62% of RDA). Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals.
- Furthermore, pines are one of gluten free tree nuts, and therefore, are a popular ingredient in the preparation of gluten-free food formulas. Such formula preparations can be a healthy alternative in people with wheat food allergy, and celiac disease.
- Pine nuts are an excellent source of B-complex group of vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) and folates. These vitamins work as co-factors for enzymes in cellular substrate metabolism inside the human body.
- Furthermore, pine nuts contain healthy amounts of essential minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. At 8.802 mg per 100 g (about 383% of daily recommended intake), pines are one of the richest sources of manganese. Manganese is an all-important co-factor for antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. It is therefore, consumption of pines helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals.
