Nuts Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Nuts are sold as single varieties and as mixes. The nuts most widely sold as single varieties are peanuts, almonds, and cashews. The same nuts are also widely used in mixes, as are pecans, Brazil nuts, filberts (also known as hazelnuts), and macadamia nuts.

Peanuts, which account for much of the nut market, are available in many varieties. These include dry roasted and honey roasted, as well as international flavored versions such as wasabi or chili peanuts. Almonds are sometimes flavored with smoke flavoring or a savory flavoring. It has been less common to find flavored varieties of the other nuts, but the exceptions to this rule are increasing in number.

Many nutritionists believe nuts are healthy. Nuts have no cholesterol, they contain mono-unsaturated and/or polyunsaturated fats, are rich in fiber, and contain vitamin E. Eating nuts, therefore, may help prevent heart disease. Other benefits of nut consumption include:

  • Hazelnuts reportedly boost the immune system and fight fatigue,
  • Peanuts are recommended for memory and help reduce high blood pressure,
  • Almonds are a good source of calcium to fight osteoporosis,
  • Pecans aid bone strength and help keep nerves and muscles healthy, and
  • Macadamias are beneficial to the nervous system and skin.
