Nuts contain many different nutrients and are a source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Eating a handful of nuts every day is beneficial to your health.
There are many different types of nut (e.g. walnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and pistachios), each with a different nutritional value. Make sure you eat a variety of nuts or opt for a nut mix. Nuts also contain (unsaturated) fat and are therefore high in calories; pay attention to how many you are eating and do not eat more than a handful of nuts per day.

In addition, an iGene Passport provides you with information on what else you can do to reduce any risks. Here we focus on behaviour that will help you maximise the benefits to your health.
