Carboor Harvest Dry Roasted Hazelnuts are oven baked in small batches using the best available Barcelona or Ennis variety hazelnuts from our own farm and those of our grower partners around Australia. The hazelnuts are lightly dry roasted (no oil) at a low temperature to preserve the high nutritional value of the nuts but reduce the moisture levels and free the natural oils. Following roasting, the nuts are allowed to cool before packing.
This product is as natural as you will ever get! It is not pasteurised so does carry residual risk of mould and salmonella (normally eliminated by the pasteurisation kill step) and is not treated with insecticide, so there is a minor risk of pantry moth. Pantry moth is a major problem with nuts as larvae lay eggs in the nuts before development of the hard shell during the maturation process on the tree. Roasting is the only kill step used with this product, but it is at a low temperature so that it doesn’t destroy the nutritional value, but it also means that pantry moth and mould spores may survive the roasting process.
The product is packaged in resealable standup pouches.
