The hazelnut tree plays an important role in ecology. It was one of the first plants to colonize bare, dry and sandy places. It filters and purifies water in riverside areas and retains the snow on the ground, attenuating the effects of freezing and the subsequent thawing. Its flowers provide abundant nectar for bees and other insects, while only its nuts and buds are a food of choice for wild animals. Hazelnut protects our cells from the effects of free radicals. Its monounsaturated fats are recognized in cardiovascular terms. A few nuts and an apple: you’ll be perfectly full of energy.
