Nut shells and their applications

You already know the benefits of nuts for your health. But, did you know that nut shells are also very useful? From Frutos Secos San Blas, we want you to get the most out of our superfood.

Walnuts, almonds … who would tell you that you can even take advantage of their shell. Our organic nuts provide benefits even after you have eaten them. Read on to discover some interesting facts about dried fruit shells! Let’s help the planet with new ideas.

Nutshell for your garden and your hair

The shells of walnuts can be a perfect fertilizer for the plants in your garden. This is because they are very rich in phosphorus, potassium, sodium, iron and zinc. The chopped or whole shells release these nutrients as they decompose. And these will be absorbed by the roots of the plants, being very beneficial for the substrate and the soil.

To use them in your own garden and your plants, you can spread them on the ground with little manipulation or conscious grinding. In the first way, the material will decompose little by little and the roots will obtain the nutrients that are naturally available. In the opposite case, the ground walnut shell is advisable when you need to see results as soon as possible, since it reaches the roots faster.

Regarding the benefits that walnut shell has for you, we highlight the importance it has for the hair. Prevents early hair loss as well as being a wonderful natural dye. Due to its high phosphorus content, it repairs and strengthens it. You can use them by making an infusion, crushing them and boiling them to later apply that paste directly to your hair.

The resistance of the almond shell

Nut shells never cease to amaze us due to their versatility and resistance. This is the case of almonds, whose shells are a perfect material to reinforce certain structures and components. We are talking about traditional recycled plastic, which lacks certain structural components such as heat resistance and rigidity. By adding almond powder, this problem would be solved at the root.

On the other hand, it is a perfect material to use as a renewable fuel for industrial and domestic boilers and stoves. This is due to its optimal combustion conditions, since it hardly emits sulfur and nitrogenous components or solid particles. Used as biomass, the almond shell has a high calorific value as well as a low content of harmful elements such as ash, chlorine and sulfur. 

There are still many more benefits of nut shells. We could spend a whole day telling you all, you can find out for yourself! At San Blas, we want you to take advantage of all the advantages they bring you.
