Calorie nuts

First, there are many kinds of nuts. Read more about these fruits in the Nuts section. Secondly, different nuts have different calories, in some cases, very different. The energy value of 100 g is:

  • 718 cal - macadamia;
  • 691 cal - pecan;
  • 673 cal - pine nuts;
  • 656 cal - brazil nut;
  • 654 cal - walnut;

  • 182 cal - ginkgo;
  • 166 cal - chestnut;
  • 150 cal - cola *.

You can see that the most nutritious is macadamia nut, and the least nutritious is chestnut, which you have to cook or steam before you eat.

* Cola Nut is an energy stimulant that contains up to 2.5% caffeine and, in fact, is the least nutritious on our list.Initially, Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola drinks were made based on it. You need to know that it is addictive, and with excessive consumption leads to problems with the digestive system.

Peanuts contain 26.3 g of proteins. More only Manchurian walnut. Macadamia is the richest in fats: they are 75.7 g in them. Pecans are a little behind 72 g. Acorn is the most nutritious, since it contains 53.7 g of carbohydrates, and chestnut has 30.6 g

Our list should help you choose the nut that is not only tasty, but also useful for your body. Peanuts, walnuts, acorn and chestnuts (the last two still need to be cooked) are easy to get, but each of them is unique in its own way.

For example, if you need about 650 calories from 100 grams, then it is not necessary to buy Brazilian, pine, Manchurian nuts or cashews - you can get by with ordinary walnuts.
