NUTS AND HEART HEALTH
Here's good news if you're nuts about nuts. Over the past decade, a substantial amount of research has suggested that eating nuts in moderation—including peanuts and most tree nuts—can help keep your heart healthy. In fact, the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015 recommends consuming 5 ounces of nuts, seeds and soy products per week based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
Large-scale population studies have concluded that eating nuts is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, and clinical studies have linked this benefit to the cholesterol-lowering effect of adding nuts to the diet.
In 2003, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced that it would allow certain types of nuts to make a qualified heart health claim. Specifically, the FDA allows the following statement to appear on the packages of whole or chopped peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, and some pine nuts:
"Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Additionally, major dietary recommendations such as the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (2010) and the American Heart Association Lifestyle Management Guide (2013), among others, recommend eating nuts as a part of a balanced diet in their guidelines.
