Baklava Benefits

A collection of London's finest baklava, now at Harvey Nichols

Baklava is considered healthy due to various nuts involved in making it. We believe in natural flavors so we avoid all artificial ones. All nuts used are in the highest grade of quality available and these are only some of the key benefits of the nuts we use.

Key benefit of Almonds

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same kind of fat found in super healthy olive oil. Monounsaturated fats have a beneficial effect on heart disease, so almonds too are a plus for maintaining a strong and healthy heart.

Almonds are rich in with vitamin E, magnesium and potassium and are a good source of manganese, copper and vitamin B2 (riboflavin). They are also high in fiber and a small serving has more protein than an egg.

Almonds are also known for their ability to help lower LDL cholesterol levels. It is thought that part of the reason almonds can decrease the risk for heart disease may be their high vitamin E content. Whatever it is, there seems to be a real link between eating almonds and cholesterol improvement.

The potassium content of almonds helps the body to maintain a normal blood pressure and protects against hardening of the arteries.

Key benefits of Cashew

Cashew nuts are significant sources of iron (essential for red blood cells function and enzyme activity), magnesium (promotes energy release and bone growth), phosphorus (builds bones and teeth), zinc (essential to digestion and metabolism) and selenium (has important antioxidant properties, thus protects the body from cancer).

Key benefits of Pistachios

Pistachios are rich in potassium (helps regulate the body's fluid balance), phosphorus (helps build bones and teeth) and magnesium (important element in the conversion of the body's energy), and are also a good source of vitamin B6 (aids protein metabolism and absorption) and thiamine (enhances energy and promotes normal appetite).
