December: Hazelnuts are ground, defatted and freeze-dried


The terms “filbert” and “hazelnut” are often used interchangeably for nuts from all plants in the genus Corylus, such as C. silvestris, C. maxima and C. colurna. These wild nuts grow in clusters on the hazel tree in temperate zones around the world and is particularly common in Europe. Italy, Spain, France and Turkey lead in hazelnut production. The nuts generally fall in autumn and are harvested from the ground and then shelled and dried.

Allergon processes the dried hazelnuts by grinding, defatting and freeze-drying.
