Are nuts in shells safe?

Hi

Has anyone had good luck with nuts in shells? Would they still need to be certified gluten free to be okay? What if I rinsed them with shells on and again with shells off? Also, what if they came from a local tree, could they still be contaminated just by the environment? Or if you know any brands or places to buy them that has been okay I'd like to know that too. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum KatB! :)

Nuts in the shell are generally safe if they aren't cross contaminated.  It  isn't a bad idea to rinse them first if you are concerned.  There's no need to rinse nuts after you shell them if they aren't gluten contaminated on the outside of the shell.  Nuts.com is a good source for gluten-free nuts.  There's also a number of gluten-free nuts on this forum! :)

Hi GFinDC,

Thanks very much for the advice. I guess I'm a little paranoid and want to rinse the whole world off. :)But yeah that makes sense that the inside is protected from the elements of nature so it's probably safe from gluten too! I'll look at nuts.com. And hahaha! Gluten-free nuts! I've gotten waaaayy too serious lately and needed the laugh! :P

Thanks cyclinglady, that makes me feel more confident to give it a try.  I really need more fat in my diet and nuts would really help right now.  I'm going to try this. Yeah, there may be days when I don't want to work so hard to get nuts out of the shells! I really hope my body lets me eat some nuts and seeds so I'm going to try adding them in slowly. Thanks again.

Has a bunch of seeds, dried fruit, etc. that are gluten-free and free of all major allergens. I love the deep nutty crunch of the hemp seeds, and the pumpkin seeds. I eat them shell on whole, plenty of fiber, they also sell shelled versions of them and even sunflower, chia, and flax.

Hi Ennis_TX

I just looked around that site and already saw several things I want to try. I really want to try hemp seeds. I'm gonna try ordering a few things on there. I really need something to snack on and add to salads and stuff. Thanks so much.

I buy from local farmers.  They aren't doing anything that would cc the nuts, even ones they run through the shelling machine.

That's such a great idea. I'm all for buying locally. I only thought I might find a nut tree in a forest or something, lol. Like you do. But I'll search online for local farms that might have some, or ask at the local markets. That sounds kind of fun & could lead to finding other local stuff that maybe I could eat. Thanks! :)

I have bought nuts from other suppliers like these black walnuts that only process their nuts (no fancy flavorings...just these black walnuts):

https://black-walnuts.com/

You do need to confirm that nuts are not processed on equipment shared with wheat if they are not certified gluten-free or in a shell by calling.  So, mostly, being lazy, I just order from Nuts.com.

The black walnut site looks pretty interesting cyclinglady. I've never heard of something where people from different areas collect wild nuts and turn them in to a central place. If I'm reading that correctly.

Thanks kareng, I may try that sometime.
