    FDA declares walnuts a drug — RT

    What are great alternatives to nuts?

  • #2
    The Food and Drug Administration is telling California-based Diamond Foods that they need to remove wording from their walnut packages that advertises the health benefits of the tasty nut.
    The FDA is merely giving them the option to either get that statement tested and proven as with all health related claims with drugs. Remove the insupportable claim from the packaging and good to go.

    I hope they start going after all the charlatan products out there in the supplement world. I don't think so though, I think this is a sacrificial whale to make a statement in the media that an underfunded and outmoded organization is still marginally relevant.

          When nuts are outlawed, only outlaws will have nuts.

            Hmm... never considered it. They're quite a lot of work!

            Perhaps... perhaps...

              There's a reason they're called CRACK-a-damias

                Plant a tree -- plant several trees. In eight or ten years, you're good to go, and to heck with Peak Oil or the FDA or wondering if they've come from China full of pesticides, or wondering if somebody irradiated the tired nut-offerings for sale in supermarkets.

                  Walnuts aren't really the best source of nuts anyway. Try to get macadamias.

                    Ugh, is there a macadamia nut shortage or something? All the stores around here mysteriously stopped carrying them a couple of months ago. Whenever I ask the produce manager what gives they just shrug and tell me they'll order some. It's been MONTHS! >:C

                      Maybe they are out of season for a bit. I love black walnuts. They are an amazing taste but they are a lot of work. My dad used to drive over them with his car to crack the shells. They are tough little guys.

                        I am dreaming of the day they will start selling hazelnuts hardy enough for my unfortunate Zone 3. U of Saskatchewan has some new variety, but they do not ship!

                          oooh, Leida thanks for the tip. I am going to plant some filbert trees on my property on Whidbey Island, Washington but was not sure what variety would work this far north. Oregon is a little better climate for them.

                            Leida -- move to Oregon. There are groves and groves of hazlenuts (filberts) here. But for pecans -- well, we'd need a lot more heat, which I hope we won't get. The pecan trees would grow here, but could never mature nuts.

                              yum i luv pecans! but i haven't found too many good "free" ones (like in the park) in a long time. We used to have a couple of pecan trees in our yard at home when i was a kid so i would eat them a lot!
