The benefits of adding nuts to your everyday diet

Tasty, convenient and full of fibre, nuts can keep you full, decrease calorie absorption, and improve gut health. Small but mighty they can be enjoyed on all kinds of diets — from keto to vegan, low-carb or low-sugar. 

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend a nut intake of 30 grams on most days of the week as part of a healthy diet for adults.

We use nuts in every single one of our products, making it easy for you to add nuts to your everyday diet. Shop our delicious range of breakfast cereals and snacks here.

While all nuts contain fibre and protein, each variety also has its own unique health benefits. That means the more variety you include in your diet, the better! Here are a few of our favourites:


Mighty Macadamias

Native to the Australian rainforest, macadamias are Australia's indigenous nut. They contain one of the highest counts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, beneficial for heart health, rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre and a great source of antioxidants.


Iconic Almonds

Iconic Almonds Almonds are one of the world's most popular nuts - and for good reason! They contain healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamin E which could help lower blood sugar, cholesterol levels and reduce blood pressure. We use almonds in a variety of formats - whole kernel, diced, meal and paste.

Prize Pistachios

Not only are pistachios delicious, but they are also super healthy.
They boast a roster of essential nutrients, healthy fats, fibre, protein, and antioxidants including vitamin K, B6 and thiamine, which your body needs to make new cells and for heart health.


Wholesome Walnuts

Walnuts are the richest in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants than any other nut. High in a range of nutrients, they have been known to reduce inflammation, improve heart disease risk factors and improve gut microbiome.

Buttery Pecans

Not just for pies, pecans are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and fibre. The polyphenols in pecans have anti- inflammatory and antioxidant properties that could benefit metabolic function. Rich and buttery in flavour, these naturally sweet nuts are a great addition to your day.
